Feel free to judge my life. I am a full time caregiver to an elderly couple already on a voluteer basis. I still feel sorry for the poor cat. At least the elderly couple are able to voice an opinion, and tell me when they don't feel well, the cat can not. So the old saying holds true, "judge not, less thee be judged."

The markings on this cat appear very much like those of a Turkish Van Cat, AKA, The Swimming Cats from the Lake Van region of Turkey, formerly in Armenia. They bear the piebald gene sequence which gives them the colored head and tail and spots or a stripe down their back. The rest of their body is white. They also have no guard hairs, the downy underlayer of fur. Their fur is of only one length, unless they are moulting. They are a unique breed of cat, not a blend of other breeds.

The real tragedy here is all the attention is focused on the "Homeless" cat, now living in a shelter.
Everyone wants to take the cat in for a pet. I'm a cat AND dog ownwer.[15 yr ols golden, 2 yr old orange tabby.

Has anyone thought about the homeless elderly woman who was unable to provide a home for cat anymore?

Is anyone offering to take her in?

Her name was not even mentioned in the articles.

Yes, take care of the cat by all means. But what about being humane to humans?

Dear What A Loser - I think I love you! I agree with everything you said. If this woman really did abandon this precious wonderful cat, then she should indeed be abandoned herself and thrown out on the street to survive on her own.
You are so kind. See if you feel same way if you lose your home and no one cares about you.

Finally - a thread with its heart in the right place to think about people needs.

Seems like most of the comments indicate people would to bring the old lady to a shelter, and if not claimed after five days, put her down.

After just seeing the breathtaking Christian the Lion video and crying over how touching it is, this story makes my blood boil. I don't care if she is elderly and a "victim" of foreclosure, she's a cruel, selfish, vile woman. Her name and face need to be shown and she should be subjected to the public ridicule she so richly deserves.
You said -I don't care if she is elderly and a "victim" of foreclosure, she's a cruel, selfish, vile woman.-

Lady - When you get to age 65 - Go look in the mirror. You will see a cruel, selfish, vile woman.

Why did the lady abandon the cat and leave it wandering alone? She should have turned it over to a shelter to begin with. Shame on her. People like that shouldn't be allowed pets in the first place.
Why? Nice of you to at least ask. As Paul Harvey says - Here's the "Rest of the Story.

The former owner of a 44-pound cat says it broke her heart to give up the tubby tabby and two other pets.
Donna Oklatner told the Courier-Post of Cherry Hill for Friday's newspapers that she lost her home to foreclosure. So she moved in with a neighbor along with Powder, a second cat named Puff, a rabbit named Honey and a dog named Cody.

Then, the 65-year-old owner and Cody moved into a friend's condo and the other animals were taken in by friends and family.

"These animals are my children," she said. "It's breaking my heart to give them up."

Still, she says the arrangement worked until last weekend when Powder's caretaker went out of town and sent Powder back to Oklatner. But her new host couldn't be around the cat because of asthma.

So Oklatner says she asked some other friends to take the cat to an animal shelter.
But they did not deliver him. The next thing she knew, the cat was picked up as a stray.
