It’s been almost three months since Calypso showed up outside our door. This was very shortly after Little Kitty had passed away, so I was trying to not get too attached to her. Plus, she looked just like Little Kitty, so I was thinking she might have been related to him. I think that’s partly why it’s taken me so long to make a post about her! She’s still here though, and sweet as ever.
We thought she was pregnant or else in heat when she first showed up, but since she has yet to have any kittens, we think maybe she’s already been spayed. She wasn’t afraid of us at all when first getting here, so I’m guessing she got dumped somewhere nearby and found her way to us. We’ve been feeding and giving her water ever since, and made a little bed on the roof (and the grill) for her to sleep in. She’s a great climber, which is good since the other neighbor cats will sometimes try to pick on her!
We tease Shikari that she’s his girlfriend, because he’ll sit at the window and meow to her all day long when she’s out there. Nelson hisses at her, of course. I wouldn’t expect any less out of him! Calypso loves getting attention, and I would brush her almost everyday. Now that she’s getting her winter coat I don’t brush her, because I’d hate to accidentally pull out some of that fur! We hope she sticks around, and if it gets really cold we might toss around the idea of letting her come inside. (More me wanting that to happen! hehe) Lucas loves her too; he’s always out there feeding her as soon as he’s up in the morning. She’s a sweetheart!
