it was just a matter of time for Carport Kitty

Carport Kitty on the move

Carport Kitty sitting in our driveway assessing the situation



I told Pretty I believed Neighbor John must be out of town this week because Carport Kitty, Bully Cat and Yellow Cat a/k/a Orange Tabby have been frequenting our carport daily. For the past couple of nights CK has stayed in the box I improvised for her next to the back door steps she used as her signal it was time for me to prepare her meals. Yesterday was a nasty rainy cold day – I noticed she was in her box every time I opened the kitchen door.

I had to explain to her that her new home was the best I could do under the circumstances. She seemed to meow back at me as if to say what circumstances? Sigh.

Carport Kitty has arrived.


Stay safe, stay sane, get vaccinated and please stay tuned.
