What was that motion...
Looked like something black...
Maybe it was a leaf...
Oh well...

I think I saw a cat...
I did see a black and white cat...
It ran under my tool barn...
Oh well...

Day later there is that cat again...
It ran under my tool barn again...
Fritz was helping with yard work...
“Mama did you know you have a cat”
“No I don't have a cat…”
“It just ran under the tool barn…”

“Well you know cats keep snakes away…”
“Really?...”
“Yes they really do…”
“We need to finish up Fritz...
I need to go buy some cat food…”

Took some time to make friends...
The food helped...
Weeks passed and cat was learning to trust...
Cat would meow at the screen door...
I was learning to like the cat...



1 - Alps Mtn - Taking Care Of

Leaving the neighborhood I saw a picture...
Picture of the cat...
LOST CAT...and a phone number...
Called the number and told the neighbor...
“Your cat is not lost. It is at my house…”
Neighbor, “Can I come see it?...”
“You can come get it… It is your cat.”””

Returning home the cat was gone...
Supper time and guess who arrived...
Arrived back at the screen door...
Well that was weeks ago...
The neighbor told me, “the cat is a female…”

I have never owned a cat before...
And I still do not own a cat...
But “Meow” has a name now...
Actually “Meow” has two names...
“Meow” at my house...
“Little Mama” at the neighbor's house...

“Meow” sleeps under the tool barn...
“Meow” naps in the flowers at the screen door...

“Meow” has trained her new keeper well...
“Meow” demands to come in the porch...
I was told that cats can not be trained...
But I have found out that cats can train...
“Meow” has trained me to rub her head...
Trained me to open the door to the porch...
trained me to let her in and out on demand...

“Meow” hears me come on the porch...
She stands at the screen door and meows...
“Meow” eats Meow Cat food of course...
She is eating the 4th bag now...
I would miss her if she moved again...

I am waiting to see where her mail in vote
is sent...which house...
I will keep you posted...
