This is one of the neighbor cats that lives a couple of houses close to us. We see him/her round all the time but like me is real shy and doesn't come to close and runs away if mum gets close. Me and my mum were out in the garden doing stuff, when mum felt like we were being watched.
When mum was a girl her family had a black cat Andy cat who was awesome. Mum is ashamed though that her father made the cat go out at night. As in at 9pm as the family headed to bed the cat was put outside to fend for itself. Expected to sleep in the garden or garage, it may seem mean but in 1970s most NZ families would have done the same thing. Cats and Dogs would not have slept in the house. Mum sure is glad that times have changed as she knows how happy I am to be able to share her warm bed and night and to be able to snuggle up with her.
Hope you all have somebuddy warm to snuggle up with tonight.
