I never post here, but I've got a question for you.
Yesterday I was exploring some underground tunnels in an abandoned military complex. 300 yards into this system of tunnels and caverns, I was quite freaked out to see two yellow eyes staring back at me in my flashlight beam. Whatever beast these eyes belonged to quickly fled from me, but I assume it was a raccoon.
Now, this puzzles me for two reasons. One, when I say there is no light down there, I mean there is NO light at all. Not a single photon. Doesn't matter how sensitive your eyes are, you'd see nothing but blackness. Two, there is NOTHING alive down there. No bugs, no rats, no plants. Just some mold. This raccoon or whatever was the only time I've ever seen anything alive in that tunnel system.
So, what would he be doing down there, if there's nothing to eat and it's impossible to see? How did he even find his way there? It's a very confusing system of caverns and tunnels, not very easy to find your way that far in, and no logical reason for an animal to do so.
I just can't see why an animal would be living in a place where there was nothing to eat and impossible to see.
a cat found me

greetings, /an/. this is my first time posting here, and i have a question.
about an hour ago, a cat approached me when i was smoking on the back porch. after scratching her ear for a while, she followed me inside. after she meowed for a minute, i gave her a bowl of water and a small piece of shredded pot roast. now she is sniffing around my apartment. my plan is to go get some kitty litter and food from walmart and see how the next 2 days pan out.
my question to you, /an/ is how i should proceed to care for this animal. i've never cared for a cat before, and if i keep her, she needs to be happy in her surroundings. what kind of food will she eat? how quickly should she go to the vet? how else can i make this cat comfortable? is there a way i could track down her owner?
all advice is appreciated.

Hi /an/. I adopted this kitty, and she seems really bonded to me, at least from the short time we're together(2 1/2 days). I dunno if she will have a problem with separation anxiety, because I only left one time during those two and a half days, and she was sleepin through the whole "trip".
Anyway, tomorrow I gotta go to school and will be out of home from 6:40 am to like... 1:20pm. What can I do to make the waiting time as smooth as possible for my little kitten? I also will have to leave after that, 3:40 to 5 or 5:30 pm, but that's just on mondays. Anyway, I could use ANY help. Plus, this is my first time taking care of a pet.
Also, english is not my mother language.
sorry about any eye pain caused by my text.
