This just happens to land on a Camera Critter Saturday. Oh how the fickle Fates love to play with us mortals. I am grinning ear to ear as I say this. The surprise came in a very tiny package that we have nick named Cindy. Let me go back to the beginning.

This morning I had to take my oldest child to the local Wynn Dixie to bag groceries as part of the SGA (Student Government Association) for his school. I figured while we were waiting for his shift to be over, my youngest son and I could go window shopping in the plaza. We ended up inside the Dollar General in line to check out when the lady in front of us started asking if anyone could take in this little ball of fluff. This is the story of what happened.

While the lady was in the parking lot, a car pulled up and parked. As soon as it stopped, out popped Cindy. No one, including the driver, knew where she came from. At this point a bunch of people started to try and catch her but she quickly hid under a car. One man in particular wanted to bring her home but he had to leave before they could coax her out of hiding. He asked that whoever caught her brought her to the pharmacy that is in the plaza.

Well for obvious health reasons they can not keep animals in a pharmacy where they are preparing medications. Left with no options, the lady who caught her held on to Cindy while she finished her shopping at the Dollar General, which is where I met and chatted with her in line.

By now, you should all know that I can never say no to an animal in distress. I took little Cindy back down to the pharmacy. The women at the front desk tried calling the man who wanted to take her home but they were unable to reach him. After discussing solutions, we decided I would take her home. I gave them all my phone numbers and my email address so when they contacted the man, he can come and get her.

I got Cindy at home now, settled into one of the kennels with some food and water. She has calmed down quite a bit and has a very curious nature. If I don't hear from the man by this evening, I am going to go pick up some flea dip and kitten food as I only have adult cats. Hopefully the man comes to claim her. I'm afraid if he doesn't I will become too attached to find her a home. Please say a little prayer to the Fates that they behave themselves this time around.

Without further ado, meet Cindy.
