Saturday Surprise

You may remember that sometime ago I mentioned an outside kitty at my house. This kitty has been around since the beans moved here 6 years ago. They says she's feral and probably came from one of the neighboring farms. She visits often and although I'm sure it's my charming personality that draws her, I suspect it may also have something to do with the food and water the beans supply her. This past winter had been especially bad with zillions of inches of snow falling every single day.
The beans felt sorry for the outside kitty and let her stay inside the garage. This is the garage and the pathway shoveled to the garage so they could get in to take care of her.

Winter is over and spring has sprung. The outside kitty has returned to the outside. She still spends the nights in the garage with the door closed, and can go in and out of it whenever she wants during the day. She doesn't roam too far. Here she is lounging in the raspberry bushes while mom does the gardening.
The beans took her to the V-E-T and got her fixed up. It took a little while to catch her. The mom beans says the outside kitty is quite cunning. She lets the beans get close, but not too close. I guess it's because she's lived the feral way all her life.
The beans call her "Shelby". Next thing you know, she'll be in the house.

  8. Little by little... when Shelby is ready, she will let your humans know. In the meantime, a big tip of the Good Cats' hats to them for helping take care of a clever cat.

  13. We like the thought that Shelby has found a place where she is safe and does not go hungry, even if it is not an actual home. She IS very pretty!

  22. I think you must have some very wonderful beans since they have been so good to Shelby. I bet she wishes she were brave enough to make friends with them, but that is hard for feral kitties to do.
