Glad you liked the pictures of little Persie
He is a super sweet kitty cat. It's funny how they tend to "pick" their homes. The house where he came from always has cats. He was born there in the most recent litter. They have a lot of animals and for a while, we knew Persie was wandering over here in the middle of the night because the trash would be torn open and there were little kitty paw prints on the car. One day, i heard meowing as i was standing behind the house with the chickens. And, after much looking, i was able to pick him out amongst the leaves and trees. He kinda blended in because of his orange color. I thought, at the time, that he just hadn't gone back home yet, because we have never seen him during the day before. But, as night time came, he was still sitting in the same area. The next morning, he was STILL there. That's when i knew he wasn't going anywhere. So, then came out the food and water, and before i knew it, i was setting up a little bed area for him....
He has become so friendly in such a short period of time. He already curls up in my lap, purring, loving to be pet. He, however is deathly afraid of umbrella's and broom's! Sometimes, we leave the back door open, and he will come inside and lay in the back hallway. He won't stay in the house though. Probably because he has never been in one. But, i'm working on that
Sher, i don't think you're strange for talking to animals. I do it all the time. And, you're right, they are friendlier than people and they are MUCH smarter than humans give them credit for. Animals are incredible. I'm really hoping to find a job in an animal hospital again...once we move to Pigeon Forge. I miss working with them so very much.
I'm feeling much better today. I think it's this crazy weather lately, that was making me feel ill. It would be wonderful to make it through winter without getting sick, wouldn't it?
