This morning over the walkie we heard someone call for a teacher who used to be a zookeeper because we had an animal on campus that needed to be attended to. So all of us teachers high tailed it outside to see what it might be. It was the most adorable, scrawny kitten in the world. Apparently she had followed several students up to the building and was itching to get inside.
After talking to the kids we decided she was either a very tiny outdoor cat or a drop off. She was just in too good of shape and too excited for snuggles to be a feral cat.
So we tried to take her back to where she came from (a bush near our tennis courts) but every time we walked away she was hot on our heels. I tried stomping at her to scare her off, but it was no use. She had decided she was coming with me, and followed me all the way back to the school. I couldn't leave her outside (what if she got hit by a car!?) so I brought her in and set about trying to call the SPCA or Humane Society to see what we could do with her. As it turns out neither place opens until 10, so the best possible thing happened- I had a Library cat for half a day!
Since she was chilling in the library with me while I did website work and research I decided to name her Charlie after one of my favorite characters from Supernatural and
