Cecilia never did adjust to life in the house. She terrorized Ginger and would not let her get to the litter box! She is still wary of humans and will allow only brief scritches. She is now living in the workshop with Madison and enjoying the yard when the weather is good. She and Madison get along. They both seem very happy together. There is rumor that they were actually on the same large dog bed...not yet touching, but very close! We are still hoping to get a picture of it, but she is wary of the camera too. Cecilia has gained a couple of pounds since her arrival and her asthma only bothers her occasionally now. Happy Anniversary Cecilia! Madison missed his opportunity to post his baby pictures yesterday . He was born in our friends back yard to a feral momma. He is such a big cat now that it's hard to remember that he was a little tyke at one time. Here he is with our friends Lynn and Michael when he was just a wee little baby back in 1996:
Madison came to live with us when he was about 5 months old. Here is he showing us his lifelong fascination with noses!
Madison will celebrate his 13th birthday on May 13th this year. He is now the senior elder statesman of the family.
We are currently trying to figure out if one of our regular visitors to our yard "Bojangles" is homeless. He has been a regular in our yard for a couple of years, usually just passing through and eating a bite or 2 at the food bowl. He had a collar with a bell, but that has been gone for about a year. He looks pretty good so we have been thinking he has a home. This week, we have discovered that he's been sleeping in one of our dog houses at night and he's been eating a lot, not just the usual nibble. When we go out first thing in the morning at first light, he's there. Let's hope his humans are just away for the week. He's wary of us and so we can't get close enough to do a good inspection of him yet. He looks a lot like Jonathan.
