Our Part Time Pet

You might remember me blogging a while back about this mystery cat that had been visiting our house. We had assumed he was homeless so we *kinda* took him in - that is to say we let him in the house and fed him periodically. We named him McNulty, and he would show up every morning and not leave until around 10pm.
Turns out the cheeky cat actually has a home, his real name is Moses, and he simply fancied moving in with us part-time cos he’s a greedy attention seeking cat-about-town. I got talking to his owner (a neighbour a few houses down the road), who assured me that he’s got a good place to live, he’s just a bit miffed that they have new kittens and he’s not getting attention.
So he still comes by, but we don’t feed him or let him in anymore. Every morning at about 8 he meows at the back door for some lovin. Sometimes he drops by in the afternoons, and might come over for a nap in our garden on weekends. The perfect pet: we don’t have to feed it or clean up after it or take it to the vet, but we get to pat it and give it cuddles. Nice!
And he’ll always be McNulty to us. :)
