Spots the Cat

Spots the cat showed up here this winter, or maybe it was early spring. Anyway, suddenly he was hanging around eating food off of our back porch and insinuating his way into our household.

The problem was, he was a snorter.

He'd make these aggressive snorts all of the time and was a bully with the other cats. He was a young cat, definitely male, and was trying to assert himself in a household with lots of other males.

He was friendly enough with us, and he liked to worm his way into the house when we let a door open for one second too long. I thought he was charming and funny and I loved his spots, but I could see that he might not fit into our household very well. It's quite a balancing act, having so many cats in one house. It can be hard keeping the peace!

Anyway, after a couple of months of Spots hanging around, he was getting more aggressive, so we had him taken to a nice country vet who is good at getting cats placed with local farms. Maybe he would become a barn cat, we thought.

We were sad to see him taken away, but we were glad that every effort was going to be made to find him a nice home.

Later on, in a weird twist, I would SWEAR that I either saw Spots or his kissing cousin sitting calmly on a porch at a house here in town. A relative? Or was it Spots? Did he end up becoming a town cat instead of a country cat? I didn't see him when I drove by the next time, but I am dying to know the outcome to the Saga of Spots.

More Cats to Come

Yay! I'm back. I had no ability to post to Blogger for, like two years. Something funky was going on with my NetGear router. I found out that this was a big problem with NetGear router users. Who knew?

Now I have a dialup account as an alternate way to get to the Net, so expect me to turn up here once in a while with new cat news. There's always new cat news. In the past year alone, there were two different strays that showed up here and tried to insinuate themselves into our household. The hussies!

One was named Spots. Spot turned up one day in the late winter or early spring, I forget which.

Oh, poop. Blogger has been mangling photos lately when you try to upload them to a blog. I will show you Spots sometime soon, plus other photos of cats, once Blogger is behaving again.

If it does.

I've discovered that the reason why I have so many problems logging into this cat blog at Blogger is because of something funky going on with my router. I need to get back to a dialup connection to be able to upload stuff here. I hope to get around to that soon.

In the meantime, I give you Teddy the Cat again.
