Another Sunbath

Black Jack spent last summer roaming the neighborhood and scrounging for food. He lost his freedom but gained a home when we caught him last September. He has adjusted well to life as a "kept" cat and although he enjoys the cat run--especially after I put down a fresh layer of hay--he doesn't seem to miss his life in the great outdoors.

He is a very engaging cat. He likes people. So where did he come from and how did he find himself on his own? He is young--probably four or five--but he had been hanging around the neighborhood for two or three years--long enough to learn to distrust and avoid humans.

As always, I'm just glad to be able to offer him a safe place to live.


Edited to correct the name--I called Black Jack "Bart"! Sorry for the confusion.

He does have an engaging look about him. Very handsome boy.

When I was little, we had a whole family of magpie cats. Jackie has the same sense of playfulness that I have come to associate with tuxedo cats.
