Neighborhood watch


There is a small black cat that lounges often outside a house on the next block. Yesterday, when it saw me coming, it got up to come and meet me. The collar gives the kitty's address - one door down from the lounging spot - and name: Petro.


These are happy streets.

  2. It looks like a lovely tree lined street. Perhaps Storbie has sent one of his keetens to watch over you and the Smoothman. I see happiness in your new home and a beautiful garden.

  9. Neighborhood kitties are the best! There are several on my various dog walk routes and I love greeting them. Most have learned that Maggie likes cats, so we all socialize for a few minutes, then go our ways. Always leaves me smiling.

  11. This made my day. Like other posters above, I have a feeling that Don Estorbo just might have something to do with this. After all, cars like gods, work in mysterious ways.

  12. "Cats," not "cars" work in mysterious ways. What a funny typo! (Of course, to me, when cars work, it is in mysterious ways!

  13. "-ro" rather than "-ra" suggests a he-cat.

    Clearing out books and papers, I ran across this recipe for mosquito repellent
    8 oz almond oil
    1/4 tsp lemon eucalyptus essential oil
    1/8 tsp each lavender and geranium essential oils
    Do a skin test before using with enthusiasm (of course).

    and these anti-biter planting recommendations
    bee balm
    ageratum
    marigolds

    go well,
    Melanie, et al but especially ~^!^~

  14. He/she is so sweet I had to pet the nose in the picture. I agree with the other one of the keetens has come to watch over you.

  15. You're in good company. Very good company it seems.

  16. Petro looks very like Sporran.

  18. If the cat recognizes you, you are already a regular. Welcome home!
