Flashback Friday

This time we go FAR back.  It is 2008 of this week.  Two very different things happened.

The first was that Ayla caught a great big dove!









She was only over a year old, so it was A BIG DEAL for her.  Lets just say that she wasn't hungry for hours...

The other thing was the strange intact male cat who was sniffing around the deck trying to find Ayla (who was still going into heat at the time).  I scared him away a few times (and even hosed him once) but he kept coming back.  So I discovered he was actually very friendly to me.  So he obviously had come from a good home.


After several days, I picked him up and put him in the garage with food, water and a litter box.  I took a good picture... 

And printed some out to post around the neighborhood.  I was just posting the 2nd one when a girl came running up and said that was her cat (she had seen the 1st).

He was an indoor cat but had gotten out.  I told her to come to my driveway (wouldn't let her in the car; I'm not stupid).  Told her and her friend to wait there and brought the cat out.  It was obvious from his purrs he was hers.





I thought that was my Good Deed for the week, but it didn't end there.  The cat came back the next time Ayla was in heat.  I guess they can tell 5 houses away...

This time, I just carried him to his home.  I suggested to the parents that they get him "fixed".  No, they didn't believe in that and it was "expensive".  I offerred to have my vet do it at my expense.  "No"...

Never seen him since.  I hope he had a long happy life.

But that was THIS week 2008...
