Cat update for week ending December 12

Something new in this week’s cat update — Poppa went inside the cat house, and hung out for a couple of hours. Which was fine with our ferals.

(For those who don’t remember, Poppa is a male cat that may live at a neighboring property, who visits periodically. We call him that because he has similar markings to our ferals, and could well be their father for all we know, though it’s a common pattern. He gets on really well with our cats; they accept him almost like one of their own.)

Here’s Porcini and Poppa:

Poppa wanted to leave, but had to wait for the others to go, to avoid causing a scene by jumping down:

The other one (probably Poppy) ran, and Spud wasn’t sure whether to run or stay (the cats tend to freeze when looking at them, then move when not… much like Weeping Angels):
