I enjoy having cats around but I’m not so sure I want another one to care for on a full-time basis. The solution arrived in the person of Mortimer, our next-door neighbor’s young black and white kitty.
He comes over whenever we work outside hoping to worm his way into our affections and receive constant petting. This friendly guy can’t seem to get enough attention. Today he “helped” us plant the potatoes. Imagine planting with a persistent cat underfoot. Still it is the best of both worlds. We enjoy endless petting and play…and he goes home to be fed.
