And another stray ....

I wonder how many posts I have started with this heading ????

Anyhow about 3 weeks ago I noticed a pretty grey striped tabby hanging around ..., and he/she appeared very wild and just stayed in the yard .

But of course I had been putting food out.... I have also been trying to get closer to him with no joy .

Tonight hubs and I are sitting outside , and I see "Spike" fairly close by , but looking a bit stiff and uncomfortable , wondering to myself why I looked in a nother direction and saw "spike" playing with the terrible twins.

It wasnt Spike sitting there ..its our new kitty .... I slowly went closer and put food down and we just sat there chatting to him .

He is a male , but hubs has called him Suzie of all things , and now that stupid name has stuck in my head.

Ill give him some time to get acquainted and then snip snip ....

You've never heard of A Boy Named Sue??

I'm telling you, Carol, you're on Google Maps as the place for cats to call home.

Remember the Bat Signal in the sky? There is one over Carol's house that says Cat Woman .

Re: And another stray ....

Well he is getting friendlier , he now comes when I call him , and meews for dinner , he still doesnt come too close , but ill probably be able to nab him soon.

He ducks through the cat flap into the kitchen , so we will devise a plan that hubs sneaks around and closes the cat flap .... thats how we caught freeway... then we will "herd" him into the spare room .

He isnt feral, just a bit wild and scared so it wont take too long ...

Holy Cats!!!
I bet there is a continent-wide Underground Railroad of needy cats that has your house as its destination, Carol.
It's too late to try to eliminate the clawed signals on the trees. There are too many by now. Anyway, word has already gone out...
