“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.” Robert A Heinlein
It seems we have two extra cats in our lives. No, this will not be a recipe.
One of the cats lives on our pontoon in the winter and keeps it rodent free. There is a bit of cat hair as a memento but, aside from that, the pontoon is in good shape. I took to feeding this cat a bowl of kibble, out every morning, as payment for services.

In the last few months a second cat joined the breakfast morning group. She’s a bit smaller and was, at the beginning, quite skittish. I believe she’s feral. It took her a long time to allow me to touch her. Also, the morning after a tremendous thunder storm she showed up soaking wet. Obviously no home for shelter.
The most amazing thing about these cats is their behavior when they come to eat. Generally they stop to talk and interact before they go for the food. It seems as if human contact is more important on their agendas. One morning I saw them sitting together on the side porch waiting for breakfast to arrive. Just two friends hanging out.
I learn a lot from my cats.
