Update on my feral cat situation: Samwise Agatha Butterbottom — also known as Darling and Cat — was conspicuously missing from my front walk all day yesterday. This was unusual because she usually greets me first thing in the morning to request that I feed her, and of course I oblige because I want her to love me and I believe food will accomplish this. So I checked the front walk every hour or so and she didn’t show up all day. I was worried but playing it cool. Then, just before heading off to bed, I checked the lock on the outside door and THERE WAS CAT. Hooray! Darling Butterbutt Cat was not dead, not at all. I invited her into the entryway — which is maybe nuts but whatever, this is where we’re at these days, nothing makes sense — and she ate her food and then walked around my living room like perhaps she might own it and reader, I was stunned! She’s only ever gazed curiously at the space under the sofa, once or twice she’s looked toward the shoe rack to her right, but never ever has she just sauntered into the room and right on over to the other side of it.
I think you’ll agree that it’s only a matter of time — perhaps just a handful of weeks — before she finally lets me pet her.
Or she claws her way inside the back of my sofa and scratches my face off? Who can say??! Life is a mystery.
