black cat monday




coming home this afternoon i discovered someone on my steps. he didn't have a collar, spooked easily, and wouldn't let me get too close so i'm thinking he might be a stray. he sure is a pretty kitty. i wanted to make him feel welcome but i was a bit worried that he was living his last moments because right around the corner beechum was outside lounging on the back steps and apparently unaware that another kitty was in his territory. when they met face to face it was a bit tense. big ol' beechum chased off the interloper a few times before i ran upstairs and grabbed a few cans of fancy feast that i had for just a situation such as this. i finally got them to eat together... though ten feet apart. they kept a close eye on each other as they ate and then the new kitty made his exit. i'll have to get some more catfood just in case the little guy comes back again.

You big softy!

Trying to hook a couple cats up. Just think of the hex power those two could cause crossing paths.

I sense an adoption on either your part or the cats.

He hangs around in front of my house a lot and follows my next door neighbor's tabby cat, Miles, all over the place. I'm not sure who he belongs to, but he'll come up to me now that he's seen me enough times...

If you are still in need of canned kitty food. I have a bunch because my cat is a snob and will only eat the wet food in pouches. Let me know--I've been trying to find a friend who could use it! :o)
