It was believed this small cat was among the hungry strays with Pebble. Always hidden in the shadows, this elusive cat looked young, definitely thin and very hungry.
From the shape of the face and body size, EJ could see this was a female. With the bigger males and stronger females, she did not have much chance to eat during the first round of EJ's feed. Most times she hid in the shadows watching and waiting. She was also extremely fearful and easily spooked, and would scoot off at the slightest noise or movement.
Feeding her was not easy. EJ tried for weeks. She was constantly being bullied by the strays. When EJ saw her being beaten by a bigger stray and then hobbled on three legs, EJ could not take it any more and took her in.
