This cat belongs to one of my sisters. Well...not really belongs to her, because it is a stray. But several years ago, it adopted my sister, and lives AT her house, not IN her house. My sister feeds it and cares for it. "Kitty" as the cat has come to be called, doesn't want to be held and remains quite aloof, but she sits at this door and cries when it is time to be fed. When "Kitty" first came and insisted on adopting my sister, it was evident she wasn't leaving. So the first time my sister had to go away for an extended period of time in the summer, she found a friend to come care for "Kitty" while she was gone. However after a few days the friend said that "Kitty" was gone. The friend was quite distraught because he had searched frantically through the whole neighborhood. But miraculously when my sister returned home, the cat reappeared within minutes. Across the years, this has been "Kitty's" pattern. My sister will find someone to care for her when she leaves, but to no avail because "Kitty" leaves too. And within a few minutes of my sister's arrival, Kitty comes "home".
I need to ask for a better picture of "Kitty". She's really quite pretty. What a funny kitty!
Just wanted to tell you that story! I think it is interesting.
