Caturday is the time when I blog about homeless cats of Montenegro.
He basically grew up under cars, too scared to come out. I would leave food near a car and step away so he could stick his head out and eat. I was able to fish him out there once after about half an hour hunt in the rain, his leg was badly injured so he needed vets’ attention. It’s funny to think about it now when Tarzan literally never lets met go. He has to always touch me; when I walk he tries to grab my shoe, when I sit he crawls up onto my lap. He’ll always find a way to make himself comfortable next to me.
Zeleni is not a typical homeless cat, because, in theory, he is not homeless at all. He was born in the streets and spent some time there, but then he was taken to live with a family. In reality, though, he spends all his time with Tarzan and even sleeps on parking lots at night.
I called her Sauron because of the eye-like pattern that her stripes form on her side. (I haven’t managed to take a proper photo of that yet.) Sauron appeared only a few days ago, at night. I told her to stay where she was, and that if she did I’d take care of the rest. And so she stayed.
Sauron is still too emotional to simply eat when I bring food. She needs lots of cuddles and reassurance to go with her meal. If I leave too abruptly she calls for me so loudly that all cats in the area turn to the sound trying to figure out what’s going on.
She didn’t look too healthy so I took her to vets. They didn’t find anything wrong with her except for the sore throat. She received antibiotics and a hormonal injection to prevent her from going into heat as I can’t neuter her now.

The shop that sells products with photos of Usyaka in order to raise money for homeless cats of Montenegro is here. All money I get from the shop goes to help those cats.
