Feline Friday September 11, 2020 Another Wandering Cat

A very adorable and beautiful kitty
comes over from his neighborhood
many times a week. He traverses a
greenspace behind us that periodically
has coyotes and other predators also
wandering through. 
He's very friendly and sweet and fun
 to see but I do worry.
I posted his photo on our Nextdoor website,
but so far his family is still letting him roam. 

Thanks Sandee for Feline Friday!
Have a great weekend!
