Wait a minute. My sister's cat is 150 miles away.
That's not my sister's cat. It's a cat I've never seen before.
I found my husband and asked him when we got a new cat.
He said, "What?"
So it looks like we have a new cat.
His temporary name is Irving. See, we name our cats in alphabetical order, and it's "I" time.
We were a little worried about how he and Halley ("H") might get along, but I think it's going to work out. In the picture below, that's her passed out on the chair above, and him on the ground below. I couldn't go aside to take the picture because the instant he sees a person, he becomes a purring machine that has to be petted.
I'm guessing he's about 6 months old. We'll wait a bit to see if he stays, or if anyone comes to claim him, and then we'll start the vet procedures. He's an awfully sweet boy...but shhhh, please don't tell anyone that we keep cats that show up out of the blue. The word seems to be getting around....
