This morning Mom and I were awakened at the crack of dawn by the sound of loud cat voices outside the bedroom window. It was a lot of fussing, but it didn't sound like a fight.
Naturally Mom thought of Mittens and she headed outside to see if our honorary Yard Cat was in trouble. He has a habit of inviting friends over. She saw Mittens on the back fence, and as soon as he saw her, he ran right for her. Mom gave him lots of pets to make sure he wasn't hurt, but he kept making angry cat noises. As did I from the other side of the screen door. Mom was sure she heard yet a third angry voice.
Mom realized the other cat must still be around, so she started to walk towards the wall to look for it. As soon as she walked close all the voices got louder.
The Chubby Tabby was hiding in the brush on the wall! The Chubby Tabby and Mittens have appeared together before and Mittens acted like he had no knowledge of said Tabby.
Anyway this morning, every time Mom would get close to the Chubby Tabby's location both Mittens and the Chubby Tabby would get loud. Finally the Chubby Tabby decided to take a hike and when she stood up Mom noticed she was very chubby, and had a real swagger belly.
Mom thinks the Chubby Tabby is either still with kittens or recently had kittens. Mom thinks Mittens is fixed, so perhaps he just invited the young mom over to the yard for some spare snacks.
We have a pretty safe and secure yard and if I was a cat... er... heh, heh, ::Ghostwriter reinserts plausible suspension of furry disbelief:: ...
Mittens must think our yard would be a great place to have kittens. To which I say No! If the universe were to have a kitten arrive at our door, I think Mom would be completely incapable of saying no to it.
Dear Cod, let the Chubby Tabby just be a big eater. Hopefully this story does not continue...
