I like my neighborhood, but one thing that bugs me is that people let their pets roam freely. Indoor vs. outdoor cats is a hot topic so I won't get into it, but I think we can all agree that dogs should be kept on a leash or in a fenced yard! Anyway, our yard is a high-traffic area for about 10-12 neighborhood cats, most of whom are somewhat friendly.
In the picture below, the large window on the right is the living room. It has a very wide sill and is only about 18" off the floor, so it is a favorite perch for Scarlett and Melly. Because it's so low to the ground, the neighborhood cats like to sit on the porch and stare in at my kitties. This results in Melly singing the song of her people and Scarlett screaming like a banshee. Fun times. Fortunately, times like that jolt me back to reality if I've been dreaming of getting a kitten. Ha!
This has become a fairly common sight when I arrive home. This gray cat doesn't like when I get too close, but he sure seems to like the front mat!
I came home one day recently and found that Gray Kitty had gotten a bit more audacious, claiming an Amazon box for his own:
"What? You weren't using it."
