Poor baby....

 Day before yesterday at around 9:00 p.m. a co-worker of mine found a full grown white cat on the 5th floor of the parking garage where we work.(Mississippi)She said the cat was terrified and basically launched itself at her.After walking around the garage for a minute and not seeing anybody either leaving/coming in she decided to take the poor baby home.

 From pictures she took,the cat was filthy.Like it had been living under a car--covered in oil,greasy.Like an undercarriage of a car,kwim?I would have thought (like she did)that the cat was a stray except that it's people friendly....Anyhow,she took the cat home after telling Security that she found the cat (just in case someone comes looking).And,because the kitty was so dirty the first thing she did was give "Baby"(what she's calling it right now) a bath.Because of the cat's reaction to that bath we are both now convinced that someone is missing their kitty....she has pictures of this cat just laying in the bathtube (faucet running) as calm as can be!She said that once they got "Baby" dried,he/she curled up with them and fell asleep,sucking on her fiance's arm-lol.

 Now,how should we go about putting up fliers or something so "Baby" can go back home?She hopes the owner/owners will realize where the cat is and ask...I don't think that will happen.We work in a Casino....it would never occur to me to go looking for my kitty at a casino.Not if I worked there or played there...Help.Someone is missing their "Baby"!

She can see if the cat is micro chipped. Is she pure bred most expensive cats are chipped but they are also very rarely outside so that would be weird.

 She will be having kitty checked for a chip...it was Sunday when she found the poor thing.I don't think the cat is pure bred...normal looking sort of long-haired white cat.

 Rachel seems to think that the cat managed to ride to the casino with it's owner,and when the person got out of their car they didn't realize they had their cat with them.Even my spoiled rotten cats won't tolerate getting a bath,and that kitty let someone it doesn't know bathe it.

Maybe post on lost and found on Craigslist? 

Trynto see if your local shelters have a page and see if they will post a picture there?

 I'm going with her tomorrow to the no kill shelter,and put a picture there. The kitty is sort of freaked out,they were having a hard time getting him(we think)to eat.And because of the way he suckles EVERYTHING (ears,elbows,toe...etc) we figure he might have been bottle raised.

 Anyhow,don't know if it's stress or something but kitty won't eat unless it's in a bottle (kitten milk).And,yes he has all his teeth.
