This morning, I noticed a cat sleeping on top of our well house. I had seen it before, but could never get close, so I started leaving food under the house for it. I finally was able to get close enough to see it clearly for the first time and WHAT a beauty he is! He is definitely Pixie Bob mix- light grey stripes, with dark grey stripes, and half moon black circles under his eyes. He has a white tipped nose and white tipped tail. He is an old soul I think, definitely has seen better days, and I wonder where he came from and if someone is missing him about now?If he were my cat, with his incredible markings, I would be frantic looking for him. He is the most gorgeous stray I have seen in a long time, and as thin as he is, if he belongs to someone, he shows no signs of liking humans yet. Plus he sprayed his scent all over the side of the house, so he isn't fixed and probably has been on his own for quite awhile. Set a trap out, though it is hard to trap the new ones, because my own will go inside and spring the trap. Under normal circumstances, I would just confine all of mine to the house for the duration- but with the remodeling still underway, there are lots of places the cats can and do get out of. Doesn't help to have half of our bedroom wall missing right now.
