I know, I know- I'm a little slow returning. I'm working on it.
Mom, dad and I live in a building with 8 apartments in it, and since we've been here there's been a cat hanging around the place. I think I posted a picture or two of her a while back, taken from my front window. Anyway, apparently she belongs to no one, and seemed to spend most of her time down at the other end of the building, where a young guy made sure she had food and water.
That guy moved out recently, so she's been kind of just hanging out on our end of the building. Well, of course mom and dad felt bad for her, especially with some of the hot days we've been having, so mom started putting food and water out front for her.
She even went as far as giving the stray some of MY good canned food! Now, I don't mind sharing, but I'd better not see this all the time.
So now, wouldn't you know, she's laying around right outside our front door... All The Time!
Dad held me up at the front door to get a glimpse of her, and I must say- She's quite the looker. Those sleepy, squinting eyes, trembling whiskers and silent meows really got me going. It was all I could do to keep from pouncing through the screen and going all Pepe Le Pew on her. I gawked and stared for what seemed like hours, admiring her from inside, eager to get to know her.
dad note: orbit looked at her from my shoulder for, as my wife would say, a nano second, then turned and wriggled to get down. That's it. No longer interested.
