We have apparently aquired a new cat.
She's been hanging around our house for the last several weeks. We catch glimpses of her from time to time but it's usually the back view as she bolts away.
Peaches and Cameo are tolerating her, which is odd for them b/c they normally patrol the yard and chase away any unwelcome visitors.
Peaches, more so than Cameo, tolerates her. You'll find them outside in close quarters, amicably enjoying each other's company....a lot like an old married couple; sitting together with no awkward silence.
Cameo isn't quite as ready to accept her into the fold. She watches her like a Hawk almost with distrust or maybe curiosity.
Tabby suns herself on the front porch and sleeps in the basement on cold nights. I've taken pity on her and figure since she's been here so long, I might as well feed her.
If you don't surprise her, she'll actually stay within sight, talking to you. I'll sit outside occasionally and talk to her and she'll answer back each time with a meow.
I'm hoping, that with time.....since she appears she's picked our house as home....that I can befriend her. I'd love to be able to pet her and then maybe eventually let her come inside for the comforts of home (and also so I can have her spayed, don't want or need kittens). I say "eventually" for 2 reasons: 1) While Peaches and Cameo tolerate her outside, they may not be so forgiving for her to come INside and 2) One word: Rio. While I don't think he'd intentionally hurt her, he acts like he wants to eat her when he sees her in the yard. Of course, that could be just pure frustration on his part b/c he wants to say "hi" and she runs away every time. LOL
Tabby cats, especially those with white paws, have always appealed to me. So I'm kinda happy she's picked my house as home. ☺
And I guess 1 more mouth to feed.....and a small one at that....isn't too big of a deal. ☺
