Mini Drama

A pretty little tabby is presently sat on our coal bunker making moo moo eyes at Albert .
Like any lazy and pragmatic fellow , Albert is sat on the kitchen windowsill , next to his feed bowl.
He is warm and comfortable and surprisingly is looking at the sad stranger in a rather benign way
The tabby looks cold.
I took her out some food as she is meowing in a needy way.
William is watching proceedings through the cat flap with his one good eye.
The Prof has already gone to bed with George.
Winnie is warming her nipples by the fire
Mary, as usual is with me in the arm chair, she too is asleep.

So the little Mexican standoff remains largely unwitnessed.

I'm watching The Bourne Ultimatum on tv.
Jason Bourne is walking quickly through the city

In the ad break I put more food out for the tabby.....she is very  hungry
Albert is still on the window ledge pretending he's asleep.

Who says nothing happens here on a Saturday night

  1. Is Albert a suitable suitor or just a friendly face?

  4. Hmmmm...
    You know what happens when you feed them.
    Well, at least that's how I get all my cats.
    And husbands, too, come to think of it.

  7. Put out a little nest for her to snuggle in out of the cold and wait and see.
    Abandon kitties do not last long where I live. Too many predators.
    I posted on Friday a new cat at the shelter where son works, I would love to adopt.
    Merida would not stand for it though. thehamish would like him very much though.

    cheers, parsnip

  9. We have a cat who is not one of ours and he comes in through the cat flap and feeds and then leaves. My cats just look up and listen until he's gone and then go back to sleep.

    2. Indeed it is. My brother had the same. He introduced a more sophisticated cat flap that only operates when his cats come in with a chip. His cats dont all like using it so he feeds them outside now. So.it is still a win for the stray. He feeds from the outdoor trough now.

  10. Feeling sorry for the hungry kitty. I have no idea how many cats we feed from time to time. We claim Tacky, but several come for her food as she is fed outdoors.

  11. take of the precious kitty.

  12. That's how our sweet Bella came to live with us. There must be a sign on your house saying there was a vacancy for another kitty. Lucky tabby.

  13. I always fed the hungry. Sometimes they stick around and other times they move on. Rescued a tiny kitten last April from the ditch by our road. brought her in much to the dismay of our 16 year old Sissy Cat. She is now howling in heat and will have to make her THE appointment.

  14. John, please do post a follow up after tomorrow dawns. Maybe the hungry little tabby used to live in some village home?

    1. I suspect she does..she looks a gentle soul

    2. Are you going to keep feeding her? I hope so! She needs a kind human like you! <3

  15. Maybe Albert doesn't know what to do. You will need to demonstrate - perhaps with a frozen chicken.

    1. He's not a full tom, so i guess you are right....he's also not used to cats being a bulldog orientated boy

  16. Saturday night - date night!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Perhaps Albert doesn't recognize her as a cat since he lives with so many dogs :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hmmmm ....I see a tabby moving in :0)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'll sleep better tonight knowing you fed her. Thanks John. X

  20. And soon there was another cat in the hat. Feed them and they will love you forever - kind of like some men.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Uh oh, I'm afraid she's yours. But good on you!

    ReplyDelete
  22. We have found out that if you feed one stray cat, many more will come.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Move over Albert he's gone and fed her, we all know what means.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Careful, that's how I got 4 of my 5 cats....

  25. Looks like you've got yourself another menagerie member!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have to agree that you seem to have acquired another mouth to feed!

  27. A skunk came through My mom's cat flap once...That was an adventure! It's sealed shut now...

  28. Juggling the pussy-cats - in my case three residents v misc visitors - is an awesome task, most of all when one of the former adopts clawed hostility towards the drop-ins, as my latest visitor, a shaggy near-tortie (so presumably a she), has now started sleeping in the kitchen on one of the cupboards, out of reach from its chief adversary. Nairy a dull moment!

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOL. Living large, you were! :)

  30. Well, that little tabby knew exactly where to come for some food and love. Is she still out there this morning, or has she moved in?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Remindes me of the cats who come here often to ask for food.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I was gonna ask if he was intact down below but you answered my question. Is she with kitten do you think. We need an update please.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think she's adopting you x

  35. We have a local facebook page for all pets lost and found and perhaps worth having a word with your local vet? She might be microchipped.

  36. Looks like you have a new addition to the family. Good on you for feeding her.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yep, new family member...

  38. I had 2 cats that I brought with me when I moved here from NY and that was sufficient. One old boy and one little sprightly girl. Then as luck would have it, upon my arrival here, my mother died. And I inherited her cat .. still in late kittenhood, hugely overweight, tiny girlish meow, as sweet as she can be and wondering where was her mama ..
    It is me now, with 3 cats, and everyone gets along perfectly well and she is as dear to me as the ones I picked out myself.
    Sometimes they come to us for a reason, we have to take them in.<3

    ReplyDelete
  39. Awww, she knew here to come that's for sure. Maybe you could just keep her as an outside cat? Fix up a warm place to sleep, and keep some food outside for her.

    You're a good man John!

  40. Oh, tabbies are wonderful. Everyone should have one! Keep us posted on whether she joins the menagerie or not. -Jenn

  41. you didn't let the poor thing in?

    ReplyDelete
  42. The word has gone round the feline world that you're a soft touch.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think you're on your way to another cat and roommate for Albert. --I would have fed her too.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hmmm....Hungry female cat yowling at the door...apparent bottomless pit.....do you think you may soon be the proud papa of kittens?

    ReplyDelete
  45. She obviously knows this is a pet friendly house and thinks maybe I can move in what's one more.
    One of my x neighbours used to put her cat outdoors for the night I would wait until her light went out and invite the cat in for a sleepover she never knew.

  46. People don't choose cats, cats choose people (and a houseful of dogs in your case) :-)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Well? Is she now part of the household?
