The New Yard Cat.
Well, its happened again! Another feline has adopted me. Its been showing up after dark for the last four evenings. Still very skittish, but it has figured out that I mean no harm and better still, I have FOOD!!! You've probably noticed me using the word "it". Haven't gotten a good look at It's back end yet, so until I know the right gender.... I'll stay in neutral territory. I'm still getting ribbed occasionally about "Ms. Mouth" actually being Mr. Maynard Mouth. It has lovely coloring and a really nice symetrical pattern on the tail. Very attractive cat!
So anyway, this kitty is a little on the thin side and the fur on its torso has an odd texture. Perhaps its natural to this individual, but it doesn't seem right somehow. The rest of its fur is nice and soft, eyes are clear, ears aren't too filthy! Has signs of diarrhea.... but thats common with newbies. Timid, nervous, actually acts worried. This cat is used to humans but not a lot of handling. Seems very relieved to have found a "home".
Now I have to figure out how to raise some money to cover a vet visit. It looks to be in pretty good shape, but needs to be tested and such. Things are a little bit tough here at present. Oh well, we always seem to get by. Our guardian angels will come up with something!!! In the meantime, if anyone has any ideas ~ please let me know! Heck, I'm still trying to get over the stress from the fight last night. Ooops, forgot to tell y'all about that didn't I? It'll have to wait till the next post.... lets just say that Rory was inside sleeping while the other dogs got into a brawl with one of the local raccoons. And then I jumped in too! Not the smartest thing I've done lately. hahaha
