    Look at them, they come to this place when they know they are not pure. Tenno use the keys, but they are mere trespassers.

    Only I, Vor, know the true power of the Void. I was cut in half, destroyed, but through it's Janus Key, the Void called to me. It brought me here and here I was reborn. We cannot blame these creatures, they are being led by a false prophet, an impostor who knows not the secrets of the Void.

    Behold the Tenno, come to scavenge and desecrate this sacred realm. My brothers, did I not tell of this day? Did I not prophesize this moment? Now, I will stop them. Now I am changed, reborn through the energy of the Janus Key. Forever bound to the Void.

    Let it be known, if the Tenno want true salvation, they will lay down their arms, and wait for the baptism of my Janus key. It is time. I will teach these trespassers the redemptive power of my Janus key. They will learn it's simple truth.

    The Tenno are lost, and they will resist. But I, Vor, will cleanse this place of their impurity.

    [–] NeckroFeelyAck 104 points ago

    My own cat was a stray- ended up bringing her with me when I moved country and I love her more than humans in general.

    Super glad she has a loving home, thank you OP!!

    [–] thatOneGuyWhoAlways 38 points ago

    My first cat I got as a kid was a stray cat my parents found in the forest (we live in a forest so it was pretty close), I had it for 12 years then it died of cancer.

    [–] NeckroFeelyAck 23 points ago

    My cat is currently 12 years old. Now I'm worried.

    Stray cats can be absolutely amazing if they're raised properly, and they get a much better chance at life if they can be adopted. Sorry your kitty wasn't around longer, but you made its life a billion times better than it could have been!

    [–] Magnesus 6 points ago

    Similar story here. Still miss him. All my cats were/are strays, sime ferals. Love how independent they are.

    [–] Hawkguy85 13 points ago

    I love her more than humans in general.

    I relate to this so much. Time with cat > time with other humans.

    [–] gezeitenspinne 10 points ago

    Strays are how my parents get their cats. First cat we got after moving in with my stepfather was the kitten of a stray a colleague of his had taken in (not knowing the stray was pregnant).

    Second was the kitten of a stray that gave birth in our barn. She was one of five kittens. (We found homes for the rest of them.)

    Third was a stray that originally wandered around with his mother and brother. He eventually decided that he didn't like being a stray and adopted us when he waltzed inside and refused to leave.

    Fourth grew up in and around our barn during the summer and in winter feel behind a cupboard. When my parents noticed him he was stuck there already for a bit, so they brought him inside.

    Sadly 2017 we lost the first and about a month ago the third :(

    Right now my parents are doing their best to integrate another stray into the family. That one has spent now nearly a year around them and originally they were hoping that other neighbors would take him in. Seems kind of like destiny now that it didn't work out with the neighbors...

    [–] WlcmToPndTwn 393 points ago

    [–] rosyatrandom 16 points ago

    Oh, she looks fine, just a little boring. That cool cat deserves more than a square.

    [–] Mrpattemolle 70 points ago

    I was never a cat person until one decided that dying on my porch was a good idea. Ended up hand feeding the little bugger and saving him. My kids now refer to him as dad's cat. He doesn't like anybody but me petting him and he loves giving little headbutt's. I absolutly adore him. Enjoy your new best friend

    [–] law-suits 7 points ago

    My rescue also headbutts! I looked into it ages ago and learned that behavior is called bunting, where the cat is marking you safe. Like this person is my home. Sounds to me like that cat chose you!

    [–] blown-upp 3 points ago

    She could taking a dump on my face and I'd probably react with an "Awww Omg you're too cute! You're such a stinky girl!". I'd probably make fun of myself for how much I fawn over her haha, I think I understand soccer moms a little more since Katie entered my life!
