WoW- A Fathers Return

Last Friday I was looking out my kitchen window and saw Stanley across the street. He has his back to me. So I went out and called for him but Stanley was in the garden. Then I knew it was Big Boy. I called to him and he ran right over. It has been a long time since Big Boy showed up for a visit. His last visit was 12/24/07. I have no idea where he hangs out between visits.

It amazing how he always pops in. This boy used to be the stud of the neighborhood but he has been caged and neutered and returned to the neighborhood. As you can see he is healthy but his face was a bit scratched up, but he turned as I took the shot. So when I hear cats fighting I have to think of him. He has been here for years! It amazes me how he has survived living out doors all year round. But I know by looking at him that there are others feeding him. The boys went up to him and they all smelled each other. Stanley was the first to greet him but was careful. I put of food for him which he ate a bit of then was on his way. I know they probably don't know he is their Father but I like to think after all these years that they do know they are family.


Please stop in to see what all my WoW friends were up too.

How neat!

Most outdoor cats don't last long around our neighborhood. We have a really busy highway right behind our house and, well...

Aww very cute. Cats are pretty smart, I"m sure they remember each other, even if they don't know the relation.

I've always just assumed that the cats that show up in our neighbourhood have homes somewhere.....
