She walked out of the woods behind our house. She had nursed kittens earlier and we suspect that someone tossed her out as we live in a farming area where dogs and cats are routinely dumped (way out past the lights of town.) She is a total sweetheart. She was so skinny and hungry. She has been spayed, wormed, combo tested, vaccinated, flea treated, and fed as much as she wants. Vet thinks about 3 years old. No telling how many litters she had. I thought she was still a kitten because she is so long and lanky, but now I'm beginning to wonder if she might be part oriental shorthair. Any ideas?

She is a beauty

When she came back a day later she came inside and has never tried to go out again, never acted anxious like most mother cats do when they have babies to protect. The vet said she is around 3 yrs old, so lord knows how many litters she already had. I figure someone dumped her because she is very sociable with humans, calm and domesticated. She got along immediately with my other cats too.
