Kitty a.k.a. Boots

This forlorn kitty appeared on our doorstep last evening around dusk.

For the sake of continuity and to officially attach myself to the kitty, I will say he is male and his name is Boots. Boots made himself known and is still doing so as I type, by meowing so loudly I can hear him from inside the house way in the front bedroom. After a while, I realized all he really wants is some love and attention. And to be pet and possibly come live inside our house.

Excited, I texted my dear husband a picture captioned ‘He was meowing so pitifully. and his two word response: Oh no’. He knows my wretched weakness for cats.

God bless Boots. It sounds like he’s had a tough life. He’s skinny (although I have seen worse) and dirty. My lovely cats (shh, don’t let them know about this or they might feel jealous) would turn up their snobby noses in disdain. Yes, I even pet Boots. I made sure to wash & scrub my hands for 5 minutes after I was done, though.

Oh, and I may or may not have also proceeded to feed Boots. All I had fit for a cat was a can of crabmeat. Boots wasn’t picky at all. Unlike my lovely, spoiled little darlings.

Much to my husband’s delight dismay, there is a 99.9999% chance that Boots will be back very soon.

    Yes we did! That is funny… I heard him/her pitifully meowing when I steped out of my car last night. It was soo sad! And, I am not even a cat person… 😉 It sounded like a little dog wining. After permission from the hubbie, I put tuna on a plate outside by our AC, where I first heard him/her at.. We'll see if we hear from him/her again?
