Waiting for Bobby
No, you're not being a pest. Thank you for your concern.
The food that I set out is always gone in the morning, so tonight, I'm taking an allergy pill that will keep me awake all night. I plan to wait for Bobby's return to eat the food I set out. if he comes, I'm planning on enticing him back into the house where I will lock him safely in my apartment.
Then I will have him microchipped, and put on a new collar with his name tag and my phone numbers on it.
Wish us luck.
