very cool, elsie. i hope otis adopts you as his new servant.
we take care of 3 feral (fixed) cats, morris, sylvester 1, and sylvester 2.
dw can pet them. in fact, they rub up against her so hard that she has to steady her stance. i can only get close before they swat, with very powerful, closed paws.
last week when it was very cold out, dw got morris to come into our kitchen and eat. we were afraid to close the door because he was so skitterish that if he felt trapped inside, he might go berserk.
the carrier is a good idea. we might have to try that. thanks.
A true lover of nature does not despair now that his mistress has turned a colder cheek.
