A very hungry stray cat found her way to my yard one day and so I started feeding her. A few days later she showed up with a white kitten...beautiful little kitten irresistible face. They decided that my yard was a very nice place to live and they stayed. I decided to invite them both inside and see how it went with my two indoor cats...the kitten was the only one they would accept. So out went the older cat to continue her life in the yard.
A few days later another kitten shows up in the yard with her. He was a gray tiger stripped cat...very gentle and shy. Eventually we became friends. He liked being outside and playing with his mother, so I left it that way.
Went outside one day and began talking to him about how wonderful he was and that he was only a figment of my imagination, but an enjoyable one. I remember thinking "you are not even real"...I never saw him again after that conversation...until today.
No, he didn't just show up in the yard, he showed up in my mind (isn't that all that everything is anyway-mind) just as real and affectionate as he had been in the yard. It was so nice to visit with him again.
Thanks for reading....
