A Cat Story


                                                                                                       
My family lives in the country.  Deer, raccoons, foxes, opossums, strays of all sorts and several snakes have made a home on our front porch.  
I’m waiting for goats and llamas to appear.

What should live on our porch is our three cats.  
Motley, Tiger and Miss Kitty stay close to home.  
They have been “fixed”, gotten their shots, and are the most expensive outdoor cats I know.  
However, their food and water provided an oasis for “Wild Kingdom”.  

To make sure they aren’t a snack to bigger things, we bring them in at dusk and they occupy my bedroom while my two dogs guard the door for stray paws that poke underneath.

The next-door neighbors love our cats.  
The adults want the cats to kill any varmints lurking in the yard, while the youngest child uses them for target practice.
   
This week, the neighbors have been entertaining a cat in their home, feeding him and giving him full reign of the house.   
A few nights ago, the air conditioner went out, and they had to open all the windows.  
When the couple went to bed, they heard a cat meowing outside. 

An hour later, the wife felt something snuggled up beside her.  
It was their cat friend, so they let him stay all night.  

They just love my cats.   
They also love a mystery cat.


May all your days be filled with mystery and cats. I'd love to hear from you.  Send me your cat story to aitken.helen@gmail.com
