The World is Mine by mydigitalmind The World is Mine by mydigitalmind
For #CatsFans Seasons Contest showing Autumn

About three weeks ago, this young male cat started showing up in my yard. Of course I had to start feeding him. He'd come even when he didn't want to eat - to play with my cats through the screen, to watch the birds at my feeders (none of which he can get to) and to chase the squirrels away. Now, when we go outside, he likes to follow us around.

This was taken in my backyard trail where we enjoyed a walk with our furry friend, who we named Dusty.

He's adorable. Do you mind if I use the image for a role-play character?

Turns out that he is someone else's cat, however, they only have him as "pest control" for their garden and do not feed him! I take care of him, get him his shots and let him inside once in a while. The only down side is that he stalks my feeders. Not only do I have to squirrel-proof them, I have to cat-proof them too!

He belongs to someone who does not take care of him. But I take care of him along with a couple of other neighbors.

If he does belong to any of them, he certainly hangs around my house a lot anyway. He sleeps on my deck chairs all the time :)
