Intruder Cat Returns

We have four cats. This may come as a surprise to those of you who have visited our house. Sometimes it comes as a surpise to me. And most certainly when Fall rolls around and we fetch Intruder Cat (Kimi AKA Kimithy)  and bring her home our three year-round cats are surprised, shocked and quite often angry.

And so it went on Thursday when Chad rounded up our wayward Siamese and brought her home.

She prefers to hang outside during the summer and has apparently developed a fan club who, upon seeing Chad stop to check on her, have been known to ask “You’re not taking her home yet, are you?” Yes, Kimi knows more of our neighbors than we do.

Ghost’s reaction to the (annual) return of an extra sibling was typical of our grumpy tabby. Angry stares of disbelief in our general direction. I’ll give her until tomorrow to walk into the room, stare at us and then turn her back on us while pointedly staring into a corner.

Seti’s reaction was also typical. (Seti is beautiful, but as dumb as a post.) Although at least this time she didn’t run and hide immediately after I snapped this picture.

And Freyr, well I never know what to expect from him. He went from pretending the situation did not exist to being defensive. After all he is the “boycat of the house”.

And thus as the sole male critter of the house (aside from Chad, but Chad has thumbs) he feels compelled to protect this house! If only I could find him some kitteh size Under Armour (although I suspect he would use his sharp pointy claws to shred me to death).

Let the jockeying for Chad’s attention begin. (Me? I’m not worthy of the effort.)
