We have 2 stray/wild cats that come around for food. There’s Pumpkin, the large orange tabby and Scaredy-Cat the little grey and white kitty. Our pet cats, Midnight and Tiger tolerate them…sometimes more than others. They’ve both been around for 2 winters and this year both have gotten quite trusting. They now will stay on the deck when we feed them. Pumpkin would always hang out at a distance from us, but Scaredy-Cat would take off as soon as he saw us, hence the name. We actually thought Scaredy-Cat was a girl because of his size and the yelling matches he and Pumpkin would have.
Last month we finally realized Scaredy-Cat was a boy when he started woo-ing Midnight (who is fixed and doesn’t have a clue about what’s going on). Anyway, because of this and his new-found trust in us he’s earned the new name Romeo. Here’s a nice photo I took yesterday.
