Cat Crawled Into The Woman's Lap And Decided To Choose Her After He Wandered Outside For A Long Time

A cat crawled into a woman’s lap and decided to choose her after it had been wandering outside for a long time.

The Feta cat with the wrinkly ears had a hard time braving the outdoors. He wandered into a colony of cats, looking for food, where he ended up with fighting scratches from other cats. At three years old, he’s rough around the edges.

A good Samaritan noticed the shy cat and knew it didn’t belong in the barn cat life. She chose to rescue him and take him into a local rescue to help him get it all fixed.

The shy cat is ready to leave the streets behind. He’s grateful to have food in his belly, a roof over his head, and a comfortable bed to nestle in.

Feta received medical care and plenty of TLC from the rescue, and he quickly won over the hearts of the staff. He slowly came out of his shell and grew to really enjoy the company of people.

When he was ready for adoption, he was transferred to The Black Cat Market , a cat cafe in Pittsburgh, in hopes of getting him a better chance at finding a good home. Despite the tough outdoor life, Feta remained very sweet and so forgiving.

When he first arrived at the cat cafe, he cuddled up to other shy kitties as if he knew just what they needed.

“This guy may L.o.o.k a little rough and tumble but really he’s just a big sweetie. He loves to be petted and cuddled,” The Black Cat Market wrote.

A few days later, Ashley met Feta and fell head over heels for the little guy. He looked at her with his sad doe eyes, and they instantly connected. Ashley could see the few remaining scars on his nose as he melted into her.

It was love at first sight, and Ashley put in the adoption application on the same day. She left the cat cafe but couldn’t stop thinking about Feta.

“I went back a few days later to see him one more time in case I didn’t get picked. That day I went back, he crawled out of his cat tree cubby and into my lap, and I knew he picked me,” Ashley told Love Meow.

After wandering the streets for a long time, Feta moved into his forever home with Ashley, making him the 500th adoption at the cat cafe.

“He took his time exploring the first week or so at home, but his personality came through quickly,” Ashley shared with Love Meow. “He is very food motivated and shows up at my feet any time I go into the kitchen.”

Feta has turned out to be quite a chatterbox. He is a master of expressing himself in a repertoire of meows.

He speaks in crackly, crunchy meows when food is involved, and gives silent or squeaky meows when he greets or chats with his people.

Feta enjoys holding paws with Ashley when he naps. He makes the tiniest biscuits (kneading) while he slow-blinks at his mom. He is not afraid of voicing his many opinions and is constantly on the lookout for snacks.

“He’s also been known to try and sneak a bite of mom’s food. He loves to take naps in his big white Lovesac (I don’t get to sit in it anymore. He has claimed it for himself),” Ashley added.

“Between naps and snacks he loves to L.o.o.k at the birds and squirrels out our big living room window. He’s a very curious boy and seems to be happy as a spoiled indoor cat.”

Feta has transformed from a timid outdoor kitty, rough around the edges, to an affectionate, spoiled house cat without a care in the world.
