G came to us about 10 years ago. I had turned into the drive and stopped to pick up the mail. I thought I heard a mew but couldn’t locate where it was coming from. This happened a couple of days in a row. Apparently W and J also heard the mewing and after considerable poking around they found a young cat high up in a tree. It took a while but they managed to coax him down and brought him up to the house.
It was just a few days before Christmas. We had three cats at the time and really didn’t want a fourth. We decided, however, that it was unlikely he would be adopted from Animal Control so close to Christmas. We would keep him until after Christmas and then take him to Animal Control. Since he’s still with us, it’s obvious that he weedled his way into our hearts in a very short period of time.
These photos were taken a week ago. When I came home from the lake he was sitting among some dead pine seedlings.
