One Night She Wouldnt Eat Her Food && Just Wanted To Go Outside.. We Put Her Food Outside So That She Might Eat It Bt She Was Havin None Of It.. We Forgot All About Her Food && The Bowl Stayed Outside All Night.. Next Morning, The Bowl Was Empty.. Me Mum Said Its Probably A Fox Thats Been Hangin Round The House && Luna Can Either Smell It Or Hear It.. She Was Definately Round The Bowl The Next Mornin Sniffin It, So Somethin Had Been At It..
Next Night Luna Ate Her Dinner Okay Bt Just Before Bed Time I Put Some Food Outside, Turned All The Lights Off Lyk I Was Goin To Bed && Sat In The Back-Kitchen Lookin Out The Window In The Dark.. No One Frm Outside Would Be Able To See Me.. It Only Took About Ten Minutes && Then There It Was.. A Big, Black Cat Who Was Obviously Homeless Cos It Was Starvin Hungry.. I Quietly Opened The Back Door Bt It Was Too Sly For That && Legged It.. I Sat Outside Waitin For It To Come Back Throwin Bits Of Food In The Same Direction It Had Scarpered In.. It Wasnt Long Before He Was Back, Lookin For The Food.. He Saw Me && Just Sat There Starin At Me.. I Threw Food At Him && He Came Forward Slightly && Ate It.. I Kept Throwin More && More Food At Him Bt Not Quite As Far Each Time So That He Would Hve To Move Closer && Closer Towards Me.. There Was A Limit Though && When He Reached It He Wouldnt Come Any Closer..
I Waited A Couple Of Nights Without Feedin Him, So That He Would Be Good && Hungry && Then Went Outside Again With A Bowl Of Food.. This Time I Didnt Throw The Food At Him I Just Shook The Dish.. He Appeared && Was Starin At Me As If To Say, “Youre Not Playin The Game Here..” I Had A Fork With Me && I Started Minchin The Food Up.. I Dont Know Bt I Am Guessin A Cats Sense Of Smell Is As Good As A Dogs, So The Cat Would Smell The Food.. Eventually He Started Movin Towards Me, So Slowly.. When He Got Close Enough I Stretched My Arm Out With Some Food On The Fork.. He Legged It..
Took Me Ages Coaxin Him Towards Me && Although He Took His Time I Could Eventually Feed Him With One Hand && Stroke His Head With My Other Hand.. He Looked Quite Clean && In Good Condition Considerin He Was A Stray.. He Was Just A Little Underweight && He Had The Tip Of One Of His Ears Missing.. Ive Got To Admit That Davidd Is One Clever Bastid.. He Said The Cat Has Been A Stray All His Life && When I Asked How He Knew That He Said That The Animal Charities Round Up Stray Cats && Neuter Them To Stop More Unwanted Kittens.. So They Know Which Cats Hve Been Neutered, They Snip Off The Top Of A Cats Ear After Performin The Operation.. That Way They Know Not To Bother Roundin That One Up Again.. Davidd Said He Learned That Frm A Feral Cat Who Lives On An Allotment In Birmingham Called Robert.. I Thought That Was Dead Clever..
I Hve Now Been Feedin Him For Two Weeks && He Comes Into The Kitchen With Luna Locked In The Other Room.. We Hve A Little Chat && He Eats His Dinner && Drinks Some Milk.. At First He Used To Eat The Lot && Then He Was Off.. Now He Stays A Bit && Has A Stroke && Even A Little Cuddle.. Hes Not Quite A Domesticated Cat Yet Bt I Do Love The Bones Of Him.. He Is So Handsome, He Looks Just Lyk A Little Black Panther..
I Hve Tried Havin Gary && Me Mum In The Kitchen When He Comes In Bt He Wont Come In When They Are There Yet.. I Think He Will When He Gets Used To Them Bein There..
I Think I Hve Got Myself A Cat..
