Meet Bob the Cat

In the back alley behind my house, there is a lovely friendly cat who often comes to chat with Bella and I our our daily walks, and is a very vocal boy. He looks quite a bit like Penny, and I think he could possibly be her brother, since there were likely other kittens dumped the night I found Penny almost two years ago. Until recently, he was being looked after by some neighbors, who have now moved away, so I’m concerned he doesn’t have anyone looking after him. I have started leaving him some food, and a bed under a covered area in my yard. And, since I can’t just keep calling him ‘Cat’ I decided to name him Bob, in honour of the Bobcats, my favourite characters on The Oatmeal.

    You know where Margaret lives, right? She tries to take him in and feeds him all the time, too 🙂

      I didn’t see your comment right away, I’m glad there are a couple of us looking out for him! He’s been sleeping in his bed out back pretty regular, I go out to supervise Arthur while he’s doing his business and make sure he’s not hassling Bob, but he seems pretty comfy. I think I’m going to bring him some extra blankets as well, it’s getting so cold at night!

        Hahaha mum is going to be soooo jealous! But happy to know he has a safe place. See, she thinks she’s a cat person but is actually a dog person. Has she met Bella?
