On a lighter note

Sunday, January 13, 2013

On returning from my walk this morning, I was greeted in the driveway and escorted to the door, not by my puppies (who were back in their crate for their postbreakfast nap), but by this pushy fellow.

I of course offered him a sock, but he seemed to prefer the idea of coming inside and having something to eat. I didn't let him. What would the dogs say?

    I'm not sure what the puppies would think, but I think the cat wants to be part of the family.
I couldn't let him in, I'd be at the doctors w/in a few hours-cats trigger my allergies and they like me!

    You are just a sweetheart. Never found a stray you can't fix.

    Ah, be careful, Sue. That's how Trudi walked into our lives. She stubbornly insisted she was going to move into my house whether I liked it or not. She stubbornly made her way into our hearts. And she was stubborn, right to the end.
It is a rather scary looking picture, haha, but black cats are notoriously difficult to photograph. either they're a blur of no detail at all get what you got.
I'm betting he'd let those pups know who was in charge right off the bat. Truds even had my old husky quaking in fear and Sasha generally had a tendency to try to eat anything smaller than her that zipped by, including most dogs, cats and small children.
Probably a good thing he didn't show up on my doorstep though. I'd eventually like to have a few less of them...though I'm not in any hurry, god willing.

    I don't know how everyone can say he looks cute! In that photo he looks positively sinister, but then I am so not a fan of cats! I am a little surprised a tom would be so friendly though..
Enjoy your menagerie!

    Too early for Halloween. Looks like he kind of owns the place. You must be quite the host.

    What a greeting you had! I do not think your dogs will like a cat. Hope things are better.

    Nothing like being yelled at by a cat who isn't even your own (yet emoticon )

    Finally a meeting. Nothing like a black cat to add some fun to your day.

    Sometimes it is just what you need.... A warm greeting by a neighbor's cat... Someone you can say Hi to, you do not need to feed, and when you are ready... you can just go in the house and eventually it will go home.
Glad you are out and about.
Keeping you in my prayers.

    He's rather cute and insists that he likes you, not socks. Maybe this isn't sock kitty. He might be the reincarnation of some old boyfriend. He could have been dumped or might be lost. I would have given him something, of course. I'm a sucker for a pretty face. LOL.

    LOL, ladies! Who let the cat in, hoo, hoo, hoo! Nope, I'm not letting this cat in. For one thing, he's an unneutered tom who has already christened our bushes. Also, he is very well cared for, sleek, and uber friendly. For another, do you really think I need another soul to be responsible for? What ARE y'all thinking? It was fun to meet him, though he wouldn't have anything to do with my socks.

    Is that the first time the sock cat has actually introduced himself? He looks a little annoyed with you. Have you not been playing the game recently?

    What a sweetie! I wish we could have another cat, but the one we have left believes he should be the only one under our roof.

    I'm with you; he's beautiful--probably a moocher. If he was willing to come in, he's not feral and probably has a home. Cats are fickle, he may stay if you feed him--but is that what you need right now? With your pups I wouldn't bring him in without having him vet checked first. If he stays around and you think he's been abandoned; then you can decide what to do. He sure looks vocal!

    Let him in! The dogs will adjust. Because the cat is so big, it may be that he becomes the alpha in the house. It's always ironic to have a cat be in charge of a herd of dogs. I say give him a home. He looks like a real bad boy and all lives are enriched by having a gansta cat.

    The dog would say: "Who let the cat in?"
