I found this tiny creature outside of the building where I work. She only weighed a pound and was a little beaten up. She was afraid of me and I was afraid of her. I just knew I couldn't leave her outside to fend for herself. I brought her inside and she became an office project until I took her to the vet. When I got her home I bathed her and fed her. Then she hid under my couch for hours. Later, as I sat on the couch, she climbed up to my face and very deliberately rubbed her cheeks against mine. I learned later that she was marking me. Then she curled up and fell asleep in my hands. It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and since then I've been the biggest cat lover. It's funny how sometimes we don't know what we need until it finds us.
