This lovely dilute tortie came up to MJK while she was at the Liliana Colony helping the caretaker. MJK says "she came up to us, meowing loudly in the manner of house cats who are distressed to find them selves outside. Lili said she had never seen this cat before. I held her for five minutes and she was thrilled to be in my arms This cat is definitely a dump. She is dirty and hasnt been grooming properly, another sign of a disoriented cat Given her infected eyes, I decided to bring her in so as not to risk spreading disease to Lili's colony. I didn't have a carrier, so I crossed my fingers and put her in the back seat of my car. She sat quietly and calmly the whole way home. Despite her eye problem, she isn't emaciated. In fact, she might be pregnant. I just couldn't leave her. I've named her Celeste."
Celeste is one of the few cats we have been lucky enough to get admitted into Treehouse, where she can get good treatment for her eyes (and a home).
