Meet our neighbor's cat. We knew it's name once, but I haven't been able to remember for some time. These neighbor's live behind us and our fence prevents daily interactions like those we have with our neighbors next to and across the street. But we have daily interactions with this cat... from afar. Every morning while Avi is snuggled on the couch waiting for me to finish making his breakfast or at the table finishing off his eggs or french toast, he sees this black and white cat walking along the wooden fence. This week we got a different kind of interaction and Avi tried his hardest to make friends.
She came close once (before I had the camera out) and let Avi pet her and then she retreated and he tried his hardest -- squatting down and calling to her -- to make friends. After a bit he became impatient as she just looked at him and he tried, in vain, to follow her.
...we saw that she came back and brought with her Forrest, our other neighbor's cat.
As you can see, Forrest is fluffy, huge, and very friendly. He's a different kind of friend -- always ready for pets, snuggles and...
... an occasional KISS!
AND all of this happened after Avi decided he wanted to be a kitty cat for halloween. I wonder if he will change his mind about being a black and white cat and want instead to be an orange cat.
