Zoot comes over for a visit

One day last week, while I was staying over at Steve and Tina’s house with Selin and Gully (Steve&Tina were still in Florida), I guess Zoot got lonely and decided to come down for a visit. Zoot is my black cat, found on a lonely Cache County UT roadside on a Haloween bike ride. I was dressed as one of the three bears (my friends Carol and Deb another bear and Goldie). Out of no where, we heard this little mewing and there he was, a teeny, tiny black cat on the road. No mamma in sight. So, we stuffed him into the backpack of another rider in the group and went on with the ride. When it was over, he came home with me to stay.

Well, last week was much like that. In the morning, I heard a little meowing and went out front to see what was going on. I couldn’t see anything, but I still heard meowing. So, I went out back and there on the porch was Zoot. He hung out for a while, letting me hold him and pet him and rubbing up against my legs. At one point, he even made it into the house and upstairs (we have no idea how he managed that) and got cornered by Figgy. After a while, he left, going down into the woods behind Steve&Tina’s house. I guess he was just lonely. Or maybe just passing through? Hard to say. But while he was there he let me take lots of pictures of him. Here’s a sample:

Zoot Simms.

He hung out on the back porch like this for probably 30 minutes. It was really odd. Not that I've ever said anything about having normal cats.
