This is my new kitty neighbor, Jackie. She moved in across the street about one month ago. Mom was surprised to see her out a couple weeks ago, but her owners said they tried to keep her in but Jackie wasn’t having any of it. She prefers to be outside and doesn’t really like the pair of year-old kitties who are indoor kitties of that family.
Of course Mom introduced herself to Jackie, and the new family, and even took them fresh catnip from my yard as a welcome gift. Jackie didn’t like the nip but her mom said the younger cats would love it.
Jackie is very adventurous and friendly. She’s visited some of the neighbors’ yards, including ours, and is happy to get attention and petting. This is a photo of her strutting her stuff as mom called her across the street back to her own yard. Mom said Jackie can visit my yard as long as she doesn’t stress me out. Kitties love our front yard because it’s full of trees and shrubs….and birds.
Here’s a close-up of Jackie. As you can see, she’s a very pretty girl.
Hopefully, when I actually see her (Mom doesn’t think Jackie has come so close to the house that we’ve “met”) she’ll be polite and not get all hissy or assertive at me through the windows.
