Our Newest Family Member

When we moved out to Pittsboro John promised that we could get a cat.  Since Nancy and I are terribly allergic to cats it would have to be a completely outdoor cat.  We said after Clint builds a cat-house then we could go to a shelter and find one.

Clint worked hard at creating a plan, buying materials and then building a custom cat-house.  One side is the front entry that leads to a hall-way and then to a separate bedroom.  It has a cover area for the food bowls and a hinged roof for easy access.  He even put shingles on it.

About a week ago, John and I were driving down the road and there was a cat laying in the middle.  At first we thought that it was dead because it didn't try to get out of our way.  (we have since discovered that it is deaf and probably just didn't hear us)  We stopped, got out of the car and the poor cat limped over to us.  Nothing but skin and bones, meowing very loudly.  We went back down the drive and got it some tuna and milk, which it ate every bite.  She has stayed with us ever since. 





She such a sweet lovable kitty and she doesn't seem to mind Biscuit at all.  We are not sure Biscuit thinks to highly of the new family member, but Biscuit already makes sure the kitty keeps up on walks and makes it safely back.  



Here is Biscuit moaning at the cat.

  2. We don't have a name yet. I was thinking "Irony" because she probably shouldn't be alive after being hit, is black like iron and is so loud but is deaf.
