If you follow my blog, you will notice that this is the second post that I’ve had about stray cats. A couple of months ago, I was sitting on our patio, and this cute little white kitten approached me meowing, and I immediately began to pet her head. In the last two years, there have been a couple of other stray cats that come back and forth every few days prancing through my front yard, but they never allowed me to get anywhere close to them. But this little kitten is so different, and then my wife and I made the mistake of giving her a bite to eat, and you know the story, “if you feed a cat, they will always come back for more,” and that’s what happened. So we call her Kitty, and she comes back every morning and afternoon to feast. She would jump up on the patio table and begin to meow continuously until someone went to the door, and she would come in and quickly run downstairs to the kitchen, where we now have a bowl of food and water.
She’s a very smart and intelligent kitten and will not allow the other two strays even to get close to the patio. It’s almost like this is now her domain. So finally, after a tasty meal, we put her back out on the deck, and she wants to play and jump around, chase butterflies and destroy the plants.
As I said before, “Kitty is smart.”After eating one morning, we put her out, and a few moments later, I could hear a cat’s meow nearby, so I peeped out the side window, and would you believe Kitty was at another neighbor’s casa begging for food again. They had left their door wide open, and Kitty just walked right in but was quickly shooed away by the neighbor. So now, I believe that we’re not the only ones feeding her, and I am not sure where she sleeps at night because we never see her later during the evening, but it’s probably somewhere nearby where she can get a meal.
