New cat in the neighbourhood

Jeff and I have been noticing cat tracks on the porch whenever there is a thick frost or snow.

This morning I took the ashes out to throw on the driveway (and remind me later to remind myself again why I should check the prevailing wind direction before I toss the ashes) and noticed the cat tracks again, this time going down the driveway.

I followed them back and they came from up on the porch and around behind the back patio door.

Awesome, we have a new visitor!

It was -10’ish here for a day or so. Cold for here. Poor kitty must have found somewhere warm to sleep.

Just now while we were about to eat lunch, I noticed something on the front lawn. I thought it was a porcupine at first, but it was cuter!

We thought it was Sally’s Mom at first, but it isn’t. But he/she has the same body type as Sally and her Mom. Maybe it is Steve French and he came home!  But there is a bit of orange on this cat’s face.   Really cute.

Definitely a relative of Sally’s.  Hopefully a good hunter. There are lots of mice around right now.  I went to other room and poof! the cat was gone.   Hope it visits again.
