Stray cats?

The new red cat that has been visiting is extraordinarily round and has maintained that shape since she first came to the coontina about a year ago. One whole year of unchanging roundness...come to think of it, I think she's even rounder now! <:-/

This guy....wouldn't you think he was a stray??? I sure did.

But now I am totally confounded as to what is going on because look what he's wearing. A sparkle blue collar and bell. Huh?

And the cat that smells like cigarettes? He showed up the other day smelling like cigarettes and aftershave.

Oh those cats. I suppose like anyone, eating out is more fun than always having to eat at home. I always wondered why those cats sometimes didn't eat that much. They sit outside for who knows how long patiently waiting for me to notice them and then once they get some head pets and a meal they are off to.........really, who knows?

Leenie said...

Hehe. Yeah they probably have a blog or at least a spot on facebook where they share info on the best handouts.

he resembles my new stray well new cat...with a new name...sylvester! look at his nose scars!

Hilary-Yep. But I wouldn't call them fickle, those guys have a schedule.

T&C-OMG, you guys made me laugh out loud again. Well, of COURSE! Why shouldn't cats out and about not be keeping blogs? You two have been doing it for years!

Maureen-I definitely think that's part of it. <:-)

Pix-Uh, yeah. Not hard to figure that one out.

Leenie-If they don't they SHOULD. I think T&C can probably track down those blogs and facebook pages.

Kritter K-Welcome to my blog. :-) Yeah. That is quite a scratch across his face. He always turns up scratched up and cross about something but he's actually turning out to be a sweet cat now that I'm getting to know him. You'd never know it by the way he looks.
