Last night the Guardians looked out the window toward Cookie, Mama Cat and Nacho’s house and spotted a cat they had never seen before. She was just hanging out, which really annoyed Nacho when he jumped out of the window, turned the corner of the house and spotted her. Nacho went into a crouch, tail twitching and muscles tense. The mystery cat pretty much ignored him.
Eventually, Cookie showed up. At this point the Guardians were on alert because Cookie is a known fighter. She apparently wasn’t in a fighting mood though because she warily passed the new Limbo kitty and headed around the house to the open window. The Guardians saw Cookie tense up again as she approached the window. She was staring in the direction of our front yard. We all went to investigate and spotted another Limbo kitty on the front walkway!
This cat we had seen before, but usually in the alley and never in our yard. She did not look happy to see us and slunk away after her photo was taken.
I am seriously at a loss for words here. There are so many cats at large that it has really reached epidemic proportions, at least in our neighborhood. I’m not done fighting by a long shot, but in the war to convince guardians to keep their cats safely contained, I feel like I am currently losing the battle.
