This is Evil Simon, aka Fat Simon. He is the neighbor’s cat who eats food on our porch. He is about the only cat who is not welcome. I don’t make these rules, the cats do. I just help enforce them by yelling at him, “I can see you Simon!” as he stands stock still.
We had a very friendly cat – dog-friendly – visit the other day. E called my attention to the window where a very cute face was looking in. I walked to the door and opened it quietly, hoping not to frighten off the new cat. Not a chance. It was right there at the door, waiting to be petted. It was a long-haired orange cat. I called it “Fluffy”. Fluffy hasn’t been back since then.
