After about a year of being completely ignored, distrusted and hissed at, one of the neighborhood strays has given in to my persistance. And let me just say, there are benefits to being ignored.
This cat just won't leave me alone! Unlike Scissor, who would rather die than act needy, this one can't get enough attention. Unfortunately for him, I get my cat fix much sooner than he gets his human fix. Nevertheless, a friendly cat is a nice change - at least in small doses.
This photo is particularly poignant. You may have to click on it to see a couple of curious black ears behind the glass. Sorry, Scissor. You are an inside cat. Deal with it.
So I guess my catfood expense just doubled.
