The yard equilibrium has returned to two cats! Why? I saw the newest addition about an hour ago. I was just sitting on the back porch (my quiet space) and I saw some movement in the bushes at a side of the yard. I sat still, thinking it was Jamie, the blue and white stray. Nope! It was a GORGEOUS meezer type kitty. Shorthair with a white blaze on the forehead. Much smaller than Jamie, too. After a few minutes of stalking the yard, she hopped the fence (7 foot solid wood fence, mind) and disappeared.
Well, I just peeked out the window where I can see the kitty food, and Jamie was eating. And guess who was sitting about twenty feet away wait until he was done? This new kitty. However, when Jamie realized he wasn't alone, he turned very territorial. Chased her around the yard a few times, cornered her all arched up. She hopped on top of the fence and taunted him. Jamie cannot jump even half the fence (it was kinda funny watching him try). She then left. I hope she comes back to eat. I can't trap her this week at all due to a sucky schedule, maybe next week. But I can keep her belly filled in the meantime.
I don't know the gender, but I am calling this kitty a her until I know for sure. So beautiful and dainty. If the kitty is a he, he is very feminine! Any name suggestions? I couldn't get a picture, I hope to soon, she was just so pretty!
Edited to add a picture of Jamie, before he was re released after TNR. Not a good photo, but it was the best I could get
