It was the cutest dang thing!



There's this feral cat who my neighbor down the street named Hobo. Hobo's been fed and sheltered from the storm by at least 3 of us on the block for the past, oh, 4 or 5 yrs. My neighbor Carol always gets litters of kittens born in her back yard for some reason or other. I guess they feel really safe there. Anyway, Hobo was born there too. Carol only feeds the ferals kibble 'cause there's so many of them. Hobo discovered that I leave out kibble and water for my outside cats. If I happened to see him outside from my kitchen window I would open up a can of wet for him. He quickly learned to sit in the grass staring at that window, knowing I would eventually be at the sink and see him and then feed him a can.

Well, about 2 months ago a very young looking all black cat with amber eyes started feeding at my cat's dish at night. Just the mere sight of a human thru the sliding glass door would send him running off. Then little Blackie started to come round during the day. On several occasions Hobo was sitting in my yard and Blackie would run up to him and rub himself against him. By golly, could it be Hobo's son??

I witnessed Blackie watching Hobo staring at my window and then getting fed. It took a couple of days but he caught on to [1] lay in grass [2] stare at window [3] get fed 'wet' food [4] don't be afraid of human who feeds you.

Yep, Hobo taught his son how to ask me for canned food! Toooo cute by half!

Seems like Hobo and Blackie know a soft touch when they find one!
