These are our three, or more likely, 2.5 cats. The Salem cat is still a little leery of being too close to humans.
The new Salem kitty sits and squints. One can just make out some tabby
stripes in his tail.
Salem is walking along, hoping to find either his Tieu playmate or some
food from those humans. Humans, to Salem, are really only good for feeding
Felix says, "Don't eat my food!" Felix still likes the low-cost
dry cat food purchased to help tame the emaciated Salem kitty.
Felix lays down in the cool grass as he watches the Tieu kitty follow the
Salem around, hoping to get to play and tussle with his
"brother." Salem, however, has other things on his mind, like
hoping I won't be following him around too much.
Salem sat down as the Tieu thinks about following. Felix just watches, as
Why Tieu picked this moment to groom himself isn't clear. Salem decided to
look over at me for a while.
This picture is the prime example of why you can't herd cats. Each one
does his own thing. Tieu continues to groom a leg, Salem stares off into
the distance at some hummingbirds at a nearby feeder, and Felix just
stares and contemplates his old age as the younger kitties have an easier
time of moving about.
