I think that on his way to the Rainbow Bridge on August 6th due to a poisonous snakebite, our Bubba cat, "Mirage", (note the markings)
had to send his spirit back for just a minute to flip the "VACANCY" switch on the barn roof.
Before he left us, we had seen a shadowy figure slinking around the barn and the back yard. God does know what he's doing. Hubby started putting cat food out in several places. Last night, she decided to turn on the "NO VACANCY" sign. I was sandpapering a piece of art and realized who was meowing at me. It took about three minutes for her to decide we needed a replacement. I couldn't keep her far enough away from me to take good pictures! *lol* She likes to tuck her head in my elbow and stick her paw out to make "air biscuits"...*knead knead*!
And no, she's too young to be his offspring...he was neutered 9 years ago, but when he arrived back in those days, he was as thin as she is right now. We believe she's about 9 or 10 months old...maybe a year old. Taking her to visit daughter vet tech tomorrow or Friday for tests and to be spayed. "Marigold", house cat, has decided she feels the same way she did with Bubba...*GRRRRRRRRRR*! Gonna have to get over it!
