Meet Earl

About 2 months ago, another stray cat happened into our yard. At first I didn't pay much attention. I've seen other cats come through the yard before. But then I started to notice that he was showing up everyday.

At first I didn't want to like him. I even told my husband that he had to keep me from liking him. We all ready have Smokey that we take care of outdoors. Not another cat to care for.

Well my husband wasn't much help. I started to call him Mr Grey. And then I started to feed him too because I could see he was hungry.

Mr Grey is a beautiful long haired grey cat with pretty, intense green eyes. He will not let me get very close to him. He runs under the deck every time I walk towards him to get his food bowl.

This is usually as much as I get to see of him.

My husband thought we should call him Earl, for earl grey tea. So sometimes he is Earl Grey, and sometimes, just Earl. And sometimes, I still call him Mr Grey.

He looks handsome. He surely appreciates your kindness to him.

He sure has the looks of a distinguished gentlecat.

I like how he is peeking at you, looking very plaintive. And Earl Grey is quite the regal name for him...purrfect.

We will be watching to see what progresses from here :-)
