Lonely Boy isn’t my cat. Alas, poor Lonely Boy is nobody’s cat.
He arrived in my yard for the first time in mid August. About a month ago. So friendly that I was certain he must belong to someone. However, since he has shown up twice every day, ravenous, I’m thinking the boy is on his own.
After a couple of weeks he showed up trailing a very small, quite feral, black kitten. He and the kitten will feed together out of the same saucer. The only time Lonely Boy asserts himself with the kitten is when the kitten gets between him and me. But mostly he is very tolerant, even generous.
I’d adopt Lonely Boy myself But I already have a cat, Angel.
Angel despises Lonely Boy. His presence, just in the yard, causes her to sulk. She feigns disinterest in her own food while lunging for any dish headed for the deck. She is intolerant and selfish.
But I love Angel and so Lonely Boy has to stay in the yard. I’m building him and the black kitten a shelter for the winter. Also I am looking for a home for Lonely Boy. He is very young and full of energy. He has a soft voice and loves being stroked. He is not neutered. He is growing up wild but he could be a very nice pet for someone.

Cruiser is stray we adopted from NineLives Foundation.org. He adores me and yowls loudly when he hears my work truck pulling into the driveway.
He likes to hang around my neck while I do chores or work on the computer and he *loves* to lick my head – he would do it for hours if I let him, but his tongue is too rough!
He’s also got the longest body for a cat I’ve ever seen. He has a perfectly round circle marking on each hip as well.
His favorite things to do include: talking to the hummingbirds at the feeder outside the window, sleeping under the bed covers all day, and chasing string or a laser pointer around & around like a whirling top. Oh… and licking my head some more, of course!

This is Gracey. She is the elder of my recently adopted kitties. As you can tell she is an absolutely beautiful cat!
She is a Ragdoll that we “inherited” from a breeder who could no longer care for her. While we haven’t even had her a week yet, we adore her and are so excited to have her as part of our family.

I found Moneypenny at the end of my street after she and her three kitten siblings were abandoned in a box when they were about 10 weeks old.
Sleeping by lions doesn’t even scare her because she knows she’s the queen of the house now.
