We can't let Sunny in the house anymore, because he causes trouble with Baby. Now Baby can hiss with the best of 'em, but she has no claws with which to defend herself. We've seen evidence of prior run-ins on her nose, so we have to keep the kids apart.
You know how you can just tell when someone is staring at you? There we were, just minding our own business, when we felt eyes on us. I looked up into a pair of pleading yellow ones.
Not to worry about Sunny, though. He likes being in the garage and we give him plenty of scritches and petting out there. In the summer, he's a regular inhabitant of our laps as we relax in the yard.
I really miss the company of the outside cats during the winter. They seem to do fine, acquiring gorgeous thick coats to keep them warm. They are all kept in either the pool house or the garage during the night and of course, food and water bowls are replenished daily.
They probably long for spring, too.
