Hi everyone. For the past few years there has been a beautiful long haired gray and white cat with a big bushy tail that comes and goes around our home. I found out today that it's a she. I've seen this cat for about 2 year on and off. She loves her tummy rubbed. Very friendly, sweet personality. When I first met her she had a black collar on with a small bell. I once taped a note onto the collar telling her owner that she frequents our yard and is so sweet. I never heard back (gave our phone number) but maybe the note never made it to kitty's home. I didn't see her much last winter. Last summer she had been given a lion's cut and looked so cute. Well this last time I saw here she had no collar. I realized she had been staying in our carport at night and most of the mornings. We have a partially closed carport so I put a bowl of water along with some food there. She ate the whole 1/2 cup of food at once so I figured she hadn't been home in a few days. DH bought some food for her today so we don't have to give her Max's expensive food. I don't think she'll have to have food all the time so I will feed her when I see her and watch her closely to make sure she isn't losing wt. I really think she has a home but is used to being outside and likes to roam her territory. I do know if she were my cat I wouldn't let her outside.

This is Max now. Yeah, I saw her last night when see jumped onto the window sill next to where I like to lay in Mom's computer/music room. We meowed at each other with the glass between us. I wasn't sure if I wanted her or not so I meowed at her for a while. She didn't meow back at me very much. Pretty soon she went away. Tonight when I went out on the screen porch she came up to the door and we began meowing to each other. I was meowing louder and louder so Mommy brought me back into the house. When the lady cat left the yard Mom let me go back out. I don't know how I feel about her being around here. I like being the only cat in this house but Mom assured me she will not come into the house and it doesn't hurt having her outside. I don't want her to be hungry or thirsty, but Mom will take care of that. Mom doesn't want us getting close to each other via the screen as she thinks it could be unhealthy. I sure don't want to get fleas if she has them 'cause I don't have any. Mom didn't see any on her but you never know. So, that's my story for today. I'll keep you posted.
