We have some awesome flashlights and at night we instinctively scan the area for eyeballs. We’ve done it for years. It’s easy to tell if the critter is a raccoon or skunk or cat. Raccoons will usually turn and walk away, skunks sort of bounce when they leave. Cats will look at you. When I took the Budster out tonight, there was a cat at the end of our driveway watching us. Mind you, we have a very long driveway compared to most folks so this kitty was watching from afar. I did what anyone…well, I did what should have been done. I took some food and water out for our little guest. He was still there when the Missus came out with Mumford and I went back into the house and brought out a can of food to add to the dried food. I also carried the bowl to the end of the driveway so the frightened puss wouldn’t have to walk all the way to the house. On my way, he darted off.
He’ll be back for the food. I know he will. He’ll eat his fill and the other critters will get the rest and I’m sure he will be back.
I hope he comes back.
