Guess who came to dinner?

Well, actually it was breakfast, but I got some closer photos of Blackie recently.* He purrs for me now (though I can only feel it, not hear it). It saddens me that he is so nervous and wary about every sound, looking around the backyard when he hears something.


This photo doesn't look like much, he had just rolled on his back to show me his belly!

Enough pets, where's the grub?


I tried putting my foot near him, and it didn't bother him.

*You might notice I have a bowl of dry food. I don't generally like to feed cats dry food. Blackie does get canned food too, but it is more convenient to have plenty of dry food available for him. I don't always see him and I want to make sure he has something to eat when he comes.

Blackie is adorable. I am glad you are taking care of him and he is getting braver.

Handsome visitor. Impressive that you can get close enough to feel the purrs.

Have you TNR'd Blackie? He's a lovely fellow!

It's sad that Blackie is so nervous - it's a big, dangerous world out there, so I can't blame him, though.

Blackie is smart enough not to bite the foot that feeds him.

That is great that you are feeding Blackie. It just takes time and patience and I bet he will be a good friend eventually. Thanks for taking care of him.

We're glad to see Blackie is learning to trust you a little more.

We sure hope Blackie gets less nervous. He must meet up with some less than nice beans.

Thank you for feeding and caring for him.

any port in a storm.. poor calories are far superior to no calories at all

Why can't we be friends?

Now that Sadie is feeling better, she's become a pest when we eat dinner. She was trying to get to my dinner plate, when Lucy jumped up...
