There is a very cute stray kitten camped outside my place. I don’t even like cats, but I’ve already taken a liking to this one, so I would like to assist it with its continued survival. Only thing is, I’m not a cat person and I don’t know what to do.

What do I do? It’s a very sweet little cat, it rubbed itself on my legs when I went to sit outside on my balcony. It looked hungry, so I offered it a piece of lettuce, do cats eat lettuce? Should I catch it and bring it to the shelter? I think it has the temperament to be a pet.

There’s a second kitten, too, I only like the one, tho. I’m allergic and my dog is cat reactive, so it can’t be my cat, but I think it should be someone’s cat. I only do dogs, if she were a pit bull, I’d know what to do, but she’s a cat. Help!

Update: How do you pet a cat? (I put my pajama pants on over my clothes because I was afraid of getting scratched, even though this cat has shown no inclination to scratch me. I’m afraid of kittens, ok?)
