Good evening Felinity Assembled, Nikita here, with more on our neighbors (Last time it was the Black Cats).
There are a pair of white w/brown posts cats, and a 3rd cat, who live in the building across from us, on the 1st floor. The pair like to hang out outside a lot, in the courtyard area.
Meet Tiger, age 5 months, a friendly fellow who even let Daddy Kiril hold him, and pet him, this evening.
The other cat, Ozzie, age 3, seen in the picture where I look out the window, doesn't wear a collar, and likes to climb trees.
It's been a couple weeks since Daddy last saw this one, a cat who was rather aloof from the others, hanging around on a doorstep of an attatched building.
Meanwhile, in the courtyard, there are 3, mostly gray dudes, freindly with the other cats, and cautiously friendly to friendly, with the various humans they come in contact with, and who feed them.
Elvira and I can't see the central area where everyone mainly congregates, but they do come down to our viewing area often, and it can be quite entertaining, especially when one of the local dogs takes their human out for a walk. :-D
According to Mark there was a fire in the next building, 2 years ago, and he grays, the orange, the blacks, and 2 solid whites, all appeared soon after the affected residents all moved on.
Because the cats were all friendly and well groomed, and hung around with no plans to move on, it's his theory they all hauled ass out of their respective homes during the fire, and showed little inclination to come out of hiding until it was too late to re-connect with their humans.
Daddy has seen one of the whites, but always when he didn't have his camera.
Mark says the other, scruffier, white may have finally moved on since he hadn't see it in a while.
As far as Daddy knows there may only be 1 other stray in the complex, a young white w/brown spots, on the other side of the complex, whom he met the other day.
We will have the pics ready soon. :-D
