For the last little while (since around the end of May), this cat has been showing up in the area. It’s pretty big looking, really fluffy (and well groomed, so I’m pretty positive that it’s not a stray) and seems to have no issues being around humans as I can get within a metre of it before it starts to run away (don’t worry – we haven’t put out food or anything for it, just some water on the really hot days – the birds seem to enjoy the little bowl of water too!).
It doesn’t have a collar or anything like that, which seems like a bad idea, since it is obviously an outdoor cat that gets taken care of. It shows up around 5pm and has stayed in our yard until as late as 10pm before it wanders off. It likes to lay down in the grass in the shadow and it chases butterflies sometimes. I call the cat ‘Mr. Kitty’, despite the fact that I don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl. My parents jokingly refer to the cat as my cat because I get all excited when I see it, and this cat is the reason why I really want to have my own cat now.
He’s got long looking fur, white stripe down the front and a white torso-ish area, his front two paws have a small patch of white fur on each and his back legs are white from the paws up until about the knee area, his tail is all gray like the rest of him.
And he’s completely and utterly adorable and I’m smitten with him.
