Mr. Gray, also known as Earl or Earl Gray is trying to dominate my yard. Mostly he wants to take ownership of any special place Smokey has all ready claimed. I'm not very happy with that. Smokey is my girl. I have been taking care of her longer so I am more attached to her. One of Smokey's favorite places is on top of our hot tub. Probably because she can feel the warmth, and because it is right under my bedroom window. A few mornings I have looked out my window only to find Earl there.
I don't mind feeding Earl, but I don't want him scaring Smokey away.
I tried to let Smokey in the house last week. She was willing to come inside, but I was holding Motor and he really wanted to get to her. I'm not sure if it was because he was curious, or because he wanted to fight her. So that idea is on the back burner for now. But I may keep trying.
