That’s how my aunt gets hers. She takes in strays (never more than one permanent at a time) and takes care of them. The first one she had followed her home, earning it the name “puppy.”I always find my cats in need and take them in. Found one at a self car-wash abandoned as a kitten. Another I would feed on my back porch and eventually tamed. I would recommend anybody who wants a cat, to try and rescue one, there are way too many out there that need a home.
