Look who I found under my house just before. Chako! I haven’t seen her since that run-in with my neighbor’s husband.
She looks very healthy too. I guess my neighbor was telling me the truth when she told me that despite her husband she has been secretly feeding Chako behind her house all along. I have been suspecting it was like telling a kid that their pet cat “had been taken to a farm to play with other cats”.
Purple is one of the two strays I feed. There’s really nothing more I can do for Chako except feed her, because she is feral. I can sometimes nose bump her but that’s it. I can’t touch her at all.
But Purple has become quite tame. I can touch him, stroke him, he even comes partway into my house into the genkan area. He has quite a tame and friendly personality.
Surely someone who can keep cats can come by and take him home? Contact me if interested.
Purple is a long time associate of Chako. Lately he’s been coming around again, so I’ve been giving him food. He is what I would call semi-feral. Unlike Chako, I can pet Purple while he’s eating and sometimes he’ll be curious and stick his head inside my front door while I’m putting food in the bowl.
It occurs to me that if somebody traps him that Purple might make an okay house cat. Let me know if you’re interested.
Tonight they both came by together so they were eating side-by-side. Sigh.
