False Start -- Pending Further Developments

Well,it looks like the New Black Kittie decided outside is better, at least for the moment.

She spent the night in the utility room and did fine.  She ate most of the food I left her, used the litter box like a champ, and drank all but a couple swallows in the water bowl.  She went outside with me in the morning to help feed the birds and put out fresh water for the critters, but came right in when I called her.

But in the evening when I put out the outside cat food, her buddy was out there waiting.  They sniffed noses, and then they both dashed off around the corner of the house.

The buddy is a pretty gray tabby, with a white nose and mostly white legs.  She(?) won't let me closer than about three feet, although she seems to be getting braver.  Not sure if they are litter mates, mother and daughter, or just friends, but they are together a lot.

I guess I'll just have to keep working on the buddy, maybe I can get them both inside someday.
