I have been feeding two stray cats for quite a while - they sleep on my covered patio. But last month a slightly retarded man who moved in here recently, took Persephone, the gray cat I have had for 6 years I found homes for her two litters before I was able to get her spayed by the Humane Shelter. She thinks she belongs to me, but if he can give her a home (inside) then I will just let it be.
However, her best buddy, Sebastian, a beautiful black Persian like cat. with emerald, green eyes misses, her. They were great buddies. Since she has been gone, he has been sleeping on the patio and today, he asked to come in and I said yes.
If she does not come back, I will let him be my inside cat. Riley and I will both have to adjust, but Riley likes him. Sebastian is asleep on the couch right now, but I plan on washing his bed I have for him and bringing it inside,
I have never actually had a cat for a pet so it will be a learning experience. I will let Sebastian determine when he goes out and comes in for a while. He might not want to live here all the time, since I know there is a bunch of cats on the other side of the adjoining building in this complex. He has his buddies.
It appears that 2022 is going to be a different kind of year...
