|Cat on top six foot high fence|
The cat is an extremely agile jumper. Easily perching on top of the six foot high dog fence.. I have had reports that the cat was seen in Leetonia for a while during the warmer months and up near a West Rim camp as well. But without regular food at these places it found some softies willing to give free handouts and a nice straw-lined box to keep it warm and dry for the winter.
Since Lee is allergic to cats this one could never come inside our house. My concern with outdoor cats is the number of small birds and other animals they kill as well as possible diseases un-vaccinated cats can get. Not the least which is rabies. If it ever lets me touch it, it will definitely be getting a rabies and distemper shot.
For now the cat's biggest challenge will be staying alive with all the predators we have around. The worst being the Bobcats who are just as agile and quick as this small cat and won't think twice about turning it into a tasty snack.
So the cat won't get a name until it gets friendly for now it is just "Cat". I am hoping most of its diet will be mice around the house as I feel this is the least it can do for all the freebies it has been getting. Mountain Girl, logging out.
