After last week end's adventure this is what we have been calling Aloysius. He got out around midnight Friday, when we were taking Winter out before bedtime. This cat just oozes out of any space he can find. Of course Winter decided it was time to play, Aloysius panicked and ran off into the woods. No amount of calling brought him back. We almost had him Saturday, but a local cat attacked him and he ran into the woods again. He stayed hidden until Sunday morning when his cries sent us searching the brush piles. Finally we got him in by putting a little kibble on the deck. His whole attitude seems to be, "What! You got lost; it's about time you came back!"
We are so pleased to have him back. Aloysius does not love being an indoor cat. On the other hand, he generally cries and waits to be brought in when he does get out. There are too many dangers in the woods (fisher cats, rabies, coyotes to start) to let the cats or dog out loose.
And finally a turtle, or tortoise for Linda. She has wonderful turtles down in Florida. Occasionally we see box turtles, upon which this guy is based.
More rain today; we are beginning to look like a jungle.
