I can't claim him as my own yet, but he's passed through
our yard probably a dozen times through the winter and spring.
I'm really not even sure he is a 'he'!
I was out on the back porch over the weekend and saw his
head popping out of the violet patch and ran to get my camera.
I also grabbed a few bites of turkey and this time instead of
running off, he stayed and ate. Seven of my own were on the porch
and they were very accepting of him. Some cats they don't
accept, as if they know they are mean! But look at those
kind eyes! And what's one more black cat? ha.
And why "Rocky"? Well, look at that beat up nose!
He's a bigger build than my slim cats. He has burly
shoulders, a big neck, and just look at those bushy cheeks!
He has Cocoa's eyes and fur. I wonder if he's his dad!
He didn't come back last night, so the jury is still
out as to whether he wants to join the zoo.
Or maybe he heard the house rules of no
more reproducing...and you have to get shots,
dewormed and defleed. lol....
