A new friend
I'm the type of person who at a party where I don't know anyone, you'll probably find me playing with the family pet. Socially awkward? Anyway, I miss my cats like crazy, probably more than my family cause I can't talk to them on the phone. So one day last week, a kitten about 3 months old came wandering into the house meowing like crazy. I fed it a hotdog (weird fact:hotdogs here are raw and individually wrapped in a plastic casing). Well it comes by everyday now for lunch and dinner. I would like to think it's my cat but it doesn't spend that much time here since it eats and runs. I bought it some friskies (the only canned food available here) and some dry food. In just a week of eating, it looks so much healthier. Now there was some confusion about whether it was a boy or a girl. It looks like a girl but after studying pictures online and looking under its tail repeatedly, I'm fairly certain it's a boy. Of course I named him Joey. While here in San Salvador I went to Walmart for the sole purpose of buying a pillow (for me) and toys and treats for Joey.
