House Guest

We have our first house guest.
Well I don't know if he is a guest or a permanent visitor?

On Saturday he hung around the house all day. He was inside checking everything out, very friendly with the boys and generally just there. No we didn't feed him and we generally ignored him. We threw him out as we sat down to dinner and never saw him again.

Then on Sunday morning I spied him next door with the neighbour. So I went over and checked if he was their's? Nope not their's.

Apparently he had slept on the chair on their porch all night and was now hanging around.
So finally at 4 pm, Steve said if I wanted to feed him then go get him.
So I went to the store and got a flea collar and some food and brought him in.

He has been here ever since. Slept on our bed each night. Comes when you call. Loves the boys and is very friendly.
He is in very good condition which makes us think he belongs to someone somewhere.

If he is still here in 2 weeks then I will take him to the vet and get him checked out.
If he is still here in 4 weeks then I will take him back to the vet and get him sorted out. Sure he won't like us for that!

We have called him 'Tigger' because he bounces like Tigger does. Not sure how old he is but we think maybe just under a year.
We wanted a cat, just not quite yet, but one that is friendly and already trained is always better than a kitten you have to train up.
