A new stray cat turned up this afternoon. It's mostly gray, and though it looks fully grown it isn't very large. I can't tell if it's female or male. None of the other cats were around at the time. The new cat was very hungry, and finished off a good sized bowl of food before vanishing. It was a bit fearful of me at first, but once I put food out seemed to be more confident, though never confident enough to approach me. It vanished when I went back indoors. It's possible that it has lived with people before, and if it did I'm hoping they had it fixed, especially if it is female. If it decides to hang around I certainly don't want another litter of kittens, and if it's male I don't want it picking fights with, or getting picked on, by Ton Ton, who is an un-neutered male.
My Internet service light is green at the moment, but I don't know how long I will remain connected, so I'm just going to post this entry as it is. Shopping tomorrow, if the day does not turn unbearably foul. Tonight I will enjoy listening to the rain, but hope I don't lose my electricity.
