More Friday cat blogging

Trying to take photos thru a glass door at night by the light of a yellow bug light is not easy. Can't use the flash. This large cat is new to me. Bold and probably tame or else starving - nah, too fat - because he came within four feet of the door to eat.
Jellico didn't like that idea at all. This is the beginning of a cat fight that didn't last long. The new cat skedaddled under the shelter across the door from the cathouse. It ran when I opened the door.

Friday cat blogging

Photos collected during the week.

Little One is lying under the big bird feeder hoping for a protein supplement. As far as I know she was unsuccessful.
Tim is now coming to the cathouse to eat on PuddyTat's level. I'm happy about that as I'd like to remove the food from the garage. I don't mind the possum but I definitely don't want the coons.
Tim checks out the night action under one of the feeders from my bedroom windowsill.
Jellico finally reappeared this week.

Breaking news

Dude seems to think Little One is a female in heat and Little One doesn't seem to resist. Hmm. Wonder what it is on the rear of Little One that convinced the vet and me she was a he. I thought her head was awfully small for a male. Oh well, wonder if I can catch her for an abortion... Or anyone want a darling little kitten?

Friday cat blogging on Sunday

This was not a sight I wanted to see this morning. I worry when night critters are out during daylight. It wasn't as light as the photo however. I don't know if it was the same possum that was in the garage last night. Seemed smaller. I watched that it didn't enter the garage. It went over to the neighbors.
I don't want to have to close the garage at night and am thinking that Tim may have to come to the cathouse to eat. I don't need critters in the garage. I don't mind the possums but I REALLY mind the raccoons, none of which I've seen so far. They do too much damage. I may remove all the food that Tim doesn't eat before I go to bed. If she gets hungry during the night she can come to the cathouse.

Now that Little One has sought Dude's company, he has made it possible to give him medicine for his eye again. This is how I do it. The box Dudie is in had a thin blanket so I put a nice thick towel in it for him. Little One still would prefer to snuggle with Dude but is not welcome. Dude just moves.
Meanwhile yesterday Tim ventured out of the garage for awhile and investigated everything. She jumped up to the cathouse roof for the first time in probably a month or so. Here she is asking for a scritch. I think she is lonely since Tommie has gone elsewhere and Little One has joined Dude. PuddyTat is still staying in her box so far.
Tim decided to try my bedroom windowsill for awhile. I should put the screen up so she has a little more room. Before the siding my windowsills were wide and frequent perches for the cats.
The white thing is my remote thermometer. It quit working last week which required an internet search to get going again. I rely on it to decide whether to give the cats heat. The little one visible in the first photo is neither accurate nor easy to read from the house.
