The meeting of cats

Meow all!

One fine sunny day, Molly was asleep just inside our back door.

A few minutes later, as all cats can do, she had teleported to outside the back door.

Soon, along came a curious Smudge, the cat next door. I don't think she had met my cats yet.

Smudge comes in for a closer look.

Molly wakes up.. she can't see, being blind, but somehow knows there is a visitor nearby.

Tas notices a new cat in the garden, and comes outside for a better look. Molly feels Tas nearby and gives him a quick wash.

Tas pretends to ignore the visiting Smudge.

But curiosity gets the better of him, and he begins to approach Smudge.
Smudge is terrified and quickly rushes to hide behind my lavender.

Tas and Molly really look the same as Lisa and Kim !
The pictures are so cute and "spring feeling" even the little kiss she gave ! Poor Smudge seems to be afraid of Tas !

Molly, you look very cozy and comfy lying in the sun. :)

You and Tas did a good job checking out the neighbour's cat! I hope Smudge is friendly.

Smudge is shy, he just needs a little time to get to know you. Perhaps two cats overwhelmed him. If he sees how nice you play with each other, perhaps he will come back to play too.

Awwww, the grooming kitties are so sweet. I love it that Molly has developed her sixth sense to such a high level...

I love your cat pictures, and the story to go with them. I feel a special affinity for old blind Molly, of course. :)

A great cat story, told as you have done with pictures all along the way. All the kitties are very beautiful, too.

Hi Sylvia,

Your cats are seriously cute. Molly is wonderful. I'm glad she can live such a happy life, eventhough she cannot see. Give her a big hug from me, will you? And from my kitties too, all 9 of them. ;-)

I met a cat named Mortimer today who looks like he could be Molly's brother.
