We seem to have gained an extra cat. We’ve tried to help her find her way home but visits to local vets, listings on lost and found pet websites, local posters and all the other sensible or slightly barmy ideas we’ve had to try and trace her owners have drawn a complete blank. We’re starting to think she might be here to stay and are gradually trying to introduce her to the rest of the feline family.
When she first showed up she had wax all over her head, neck and tail. This was taken when we were about two thirds of the way through brushing it out, it’s not a brilliant picture but you can see the pale streak of wax remaining on the top of her head.
The wax is all gone, and hopefully forgotten by the cat, now and she’s started to regrow fur where she’s been left with a bald patch on her neck. She’s not an easy cat to photograph, if you’re looking at her she wants you to fuss her, but this is her in her bird watching spot.
And this is her deciding that red cats are safe to ignore if there’s a meal to be eaten.
