   Leave a treat for Outside Kitty

Kitty-kitty-kitty; Hey you

July 10th 2002

To sneak into the house to eat out of Seymour's dish; to climb into a lap when someone is outside; to follow us around the yard to see what we're doing

Cats who stay in the house all the time; dogs that chase

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Nap Spot:
In the rafters of the garage

Favorite Food:
Seymour's special UT food

He gives great frowning stares when he climbs up to look in the kitchen window at us.


Arrival Story:
This cat started hanging out in the fields around our house in July of 2004. He looked so sleek & clean, we figured it was a neighbor's cat out mousing around. It started hanging around more often and closer & closer to our house until one day it was hanging out under my truck. It yowled fiercely whenever anyone got too close, so we didn't push the issue. But I did get a dish of cat food & slid it under the truck at the cat, all the while he's yelling at the top of his lungs & being very threatening. But he dove into the food, pausing only momentarily to yell at us some more. The next day he was under my truck again, so I slid more food under there, while he yowled--but not quite so fiercely. The third day he just grumbled & by the end of the week, he came running when I rattled the food dish. He's moved into our garage & seems very happy to hang out with us. We took him to the Colton Veterinary Service for a check-up & shots; he's neutered and very healthy & apparently here to stay.

This guy is very leery of coming in the house, although he likes coming in to eat from Seymour's dish (but not Lulu's dish). He's very tolerant of the puppy until she gets too rambunctious, then he escapes. He isn't fond of the other stray who showed up, Tux, and regularly chased her off, or up a tree, or wherever. The first time this cat looked in the kitchen window, he glared at us as if to say, "What are those other cats doing in there??" Seymour still gets scared when this kitty is in the window. (He outweighs Seymour by at least 5 pounds.) He likes climbing onto my truck as a way of getting on the porch roof. He really has an intimidating glare, but twines around our ankles & begs for petting when we're outside. He has a stuttery meow.
