My husband and I have also found a neighborhood cat. He makes the rounds of about a 1/2 mile radius visiting various homes for food and an occasional mid-day nap. He is such a great little visitor - very social, loves people. But like most batchelor playboys, is not looking for commitment.
That's funny. I'm thinking your little visitor is more likely someone's cat who makes the rounds in hopes of food, or a stray rather a feral cat. Usually feral cats are not that social and prefer to be away from people. Tango does not let me talk to him within a good 3'-5' distance...any closer he gives me a big 'ol hiss.
Best wishes for a Happy & Healthy New Year!
Your story was lovely and it reminded me of how Jack and Drew come into my life.
One of my cats appeared when his mother walked in out of a storm one night, no one could go near her as she was as mean as a cut snake, her water broke on my coffee table, she gave birth to 5 kittens and left. I was amazed at how much work it is to hand raise 5 little darlings, but i was a complete joy, i kept one and found homes for the other 4. Ah but that is not the end of the story 8 months later she reappeared and gave birth to yet another 5 little darlings, her dispostition had not improved in this time. Again I hand raised them kept one and found homes for the others. It has now been 8 years my cats are two of the joys of my life, we have never seen hide nor hair of their mother since there birth days.
