4 bunnies and now a cat

This weekend was kind of exciting around the Gillin house. It appears we now have a cat. We think it's a girl kitten and we've named her Bandit. And she's as sweet as can be -- affectionate and playful. She likes me a lot more than Paul right now because Paul tried to pick her up the first time he petted her. I think she felt a little threatened. She's beautiful, too...

Too bad I'm so allergic; I'd have her at the vet and in the house in no time if I wasn't. As it is, she hides out in our next door neighbor's garage (which is open) during the day and comes over for attention and pets and food. Day One was Saturday and she got 2 cans of tuna fish. Then on Sunday, Paul bought her some kitty food, so we put some of that in a dish every night. And there's a dish of water out there waiting for her whenever she wants it. She's been known to lay on our driveway and on our porch.

If anyone in Framingham wants to give this kitty a good home, email me!

    What a beautiful cat! We have a ginger cat who visits us all the time in the nice weather. We think she lives on the next block and is nice and plump, so don't believe she's a stray!

    Hope somebody can give Bandit a new home. In the meantime it sounds like you're doing all you can!

    Yup, us too. Maxine was sitting on the step when we moved in 7 years ago and she still is there. Gets plenty of good food and knows where the neighbors have hand outs too! Finds safe and dry and warm places to sleep and is very personable. Keeps the mouse population down as well.

    Oh, if only Bandit starting hunting mice! I'd love it! We have a mouse family who loves our house. Too bad they're not invited! Hope she finds a dry place to hang out during these summer t-storms. She's getting fed wonderfully, so we're all set there. Although she pretends that she's starving, of course. The mewing is so adorable.

    We think she stays in our next-door neighbor's garage most of the time when it's hot out. They keep the doors open, so that's convenient for her!

    Should I just leave her be and feed her and give her love, or should I try to give her to someone who will keep her inside? I'm torn...

    Very cute! But be careful at night... I don't know about Framingham, but where I live (also in MA) there are a lot of coyotes. If she's living outside, you might want to consider setting up somewhere for her to stay, having a neighbor take her in, or something like that.
