Styer is not the biggest fan of the strays that roam his neighborhood, but his fiancée Renee Becerra devotes her time to the colony and keeping its members healthy. Chunk Chunk had appeared sometime in the fall, making her one of the colony’s newer members, and seemed unprepared to brave the weather.
“I've always been pretty reticent about bringing the cats inside, but I knew Renee would really want me to help Chunk Chunk out,” he explained. “I love Renee and I knew helping Chunk Chunk was the right thing to do.”
Styer opened the window and let Chunk Chunk in from the cold. But once the cat was safe and warm, she wasn’t quite sure what to do.
“She allowed me to pick her up, which is unusual for our community cats,” Styer said. “When I set her down, she instantly ran around the house and tried to run out through another window. She learned it was closed when she ran into it.”
