...yes, I had my first guest tonight!
It was "Girl," the black-and-white cat seen looking through my screen in this photo from yesterday*...
My neighbor went out this evening without closing her cats' access hatch and, while enjoying her freedom, Girl wandered up to my door and sauntered in, bold as, well, a cat. She checked the place out, jumped up on my bed for a quick snooze, came over for a chin-rub, then went back out.
Maybe she would have stayed longer if I offered her some leftover turkey....
It's the story of my life with females, Jim: they stop by, look cute and purr for a while, then split.
* The other cat in the photo is called "Honey." Her daughter, also seen here before (and no doubt to be pictured again), is "Max."
