It is really interested in what goes on in the house. It likes to watch the humans. Notice the little white patch on it's chest.
After waking from a long nap, I was excited to see it check out the food I have been leaving out. Sadly, it got too freaked out from me taking pictures and ran off before it ate any food.
Lounging in the sun in the front yard.
I call this cat the "crooked-tail kitty" because it always holds it's tail like it's broken in the middle. This cat doesn't look like it needs more food and yet it always eats what the black kitty doesn't eat.
The black cat seems to be hanging around more. After watching it sleep in the rain the other day, I decided it needs a home of it's own. So, I built it a home.
I used materials that were around the house, so it didn't cost me anything except a day's labor. My original plan called for having a covered place for the food and a cozy place to sleep.
The smaller entry space would hold the food and the larger space was for sleeping. Now that it is together, I am having second thoughts about having the food in the smaller space. I imagine if the black kitty is asleep inside and the crooked-tail kitty comes to eat the food there may be a fight. Fights are bad, so, I may build a separate little three-walled shelter just for the food.
If the kitty takes up residence here, I may spend some money and insulate the house for the winter. I also have thought of putting in a window to add some natural light and allow me to see in.
Now that it has a home, I'm gonna have to start thinking of a name for the black kitty. Any ideas?
