A stray cat showed up this morning -- a fluffy black girl with white paws and a ruined ear.  She came trotting right up to me while I had the dogs out for potty, and showed utterly NO fear at either of them.  Not a hiss, not a claw.  She just flopped.  Charmingly.  (Also suspect she might be preggers.  Maybe.  Not sure, because she's just that FLUFFY.)

I had to take G to work, and by the time I came home, she was gone.  She's back again, and I've put a little food and (perhaps more importantly) water out on the front porch.  She's meowing like a broken-hearted little... well, cat, but I don't dare bring her into the house -- Kisa isn't terribly tolerant of other cats, and I think I felt a tick on the stray, and I'm sure she's got fleas, oh god, and who knows what else.

I have to do something, though.  And the no-kill shelter doesn't open until noon.

Every time I go outside she starts rubbing against my leg and meowing and oh my GOD she is breaking my HEART here.

ADVICE, PLZ?  NOT SURE WHAT TO DO HERE.

EDIT:  Okay, every freaking no-kill shelter I could call says they are FULL UP WITH CATS.  So Mystery Kitty has been dropped off at the county shelter, and we're going to be notified if she is, first and foremost, adoptable (i.e. she isn't claimed by owners, or if she's not too sick to BE adopted out).  From there, we'll either adopt her, or give her a chance to be adopted out by someone else (Kisa reacted BADLY to the sight of this cat through the window -- I think I'd like to give her a chance with someone else first).  If she doesn't get adopted out in... I don't even know what a good window is, then we're going to adopt her ourselves and Kisa can just learn to live with it.
