A couple weeks ago when we showed you our new wheels several of you asked who the kitty was in the picture, so I thought today might be a good time to introduce you to our neighbors.
This is Milo. He's lived in my 'hood for a decade longer than I've been alive, and in full disclosure I have a bit of a kitty crush on him. When Mommy sees him in our yard she starts yelling, "Milo! Milo!" and no matter what I'm doing I rush to the door or window to see him. Mommy's heart melts when she sees me tapping the door like I'm inviting him in to play.
This is Jinx. I don't have strong feelings one way or the other towards her. She hangs out with Milo a lot so I think she might be trying to steal my man.
Then there's Millie. Millie is in her late teens and deaf as a doornail, which means when she meows, she YELLS. Her screaming puts me on edge causing me to hiss, growl and body slam the door when she visits. Mommy has tried to get a video of my little performance but I haven't cooperated. This little snippet does show that Millie knows who's boss though!
Mommy is very worried about Millie because her family is moving this month. Supposedly they're taking Millie with them (they acted rather offended when asked), but they've also been known to go away on summer vacation and leave her outside to fend for herself (at which time we've fed her at our house). We're afraid she's going to end up running off and trying to get back to her old neighborhood.
Do you have a love/hate relationship with your neighbors too?
