Weekend Cat Blogging #103: Texas Cat, and some updates

Luna is taking a break this weekend while we introduce a little friend from my recent trip to Texas. While staying at a cottage outside the town of Wimberly, Texas, I encountered this fellow hiding under the deck:

Presumably, he (she) is one of the many roaming outdoor cats that one finds in rural areas. Quite shy at first, a day later the cat came out in the open and allowed me to take some better photographs:

Although quite thin (as several have already commented), this cat had a very nice coat, suggesting he does get some decent food, probably on a mixture of rodents, the occasional handout from neighbors, and naive city folk.

It's always a treat to see cats when I travel. There were a couple others in town and in the countryside, but I was not able to get any photos of them.

Check out the other cats this weekend at the The House of the (Mostly) Black Cats, where Boni and Mini are hosting. Among this weekend's entries is an update from kitikata-san on Bruno, the “little black kitty” who needed a home after being found with cuts and bruises on the side of the road. He's doing well now in his new home. You can read more about his story here.

We would also like to remind WCB'ers and others that we are donating all CD sales through June 4 to the family of TeaCup and the Bad Kitty Cats. Please consider supporting new music and our friends.

  1. That kitty does look skinny, I hope its getting lots of love from the townsfolk! The kitty seemed to like being photographed – maybe its friends will also come out to say hi to the flashy box?

  2. He's a handsome kitty. We hope he really does get enough to eat. It's no fun to go without food. We know. We had to for a long time. Thanks for joining us at <a href="http://catsnmom.blogspot.com/2007/05/weekend-cat-blogging-103.html">WCB #103</a>.

    Pee Ess. We got our CD! It's so great of you to donate the green papers from it to Teacup's family. We purrsonally prefer the sound of the treats bag, so we gave the CD to Mom. She really likes it though.

  3. Luna looks so comfy there. I hope she was having some really nice kitty dreams.

    About your new kitty friend, he may be skinny, but he looks well cared for. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Oh Catsynth, thank you for being nice to strays. I was a stray once, and my humans were nice to me. Thank you for posting about Bruno too. He is one happy and healthy kitty now.

  5. Hi Luna and Amar… Luna you look fluffy cozy. Round is such a great shape for a kitty cat to be in…

    Aww the little stray is very pretty. Nice pictures too- I especially love the under the stairs, nice lines.

    Sending you much love and purrs!

    (ps… the kitty meow on rss? good idea… probably will soon, when i get the other sites up!)

  6. Thanks for all the comments. We hope our little stray friend is OK, too, especially with all the rain and flooding in the Austin area this weekend.
