Another “Cheetah”…

In January 2014, a stray(?) cat showed up that I named Cheetah Rivera — he was a shy, but frequent visitor and eventually disappeared. He let me pet him a few times, but he would never eat one bite. Not even People Tuna. His photos are filed under “Ghost Kitties” where he has lots of company in the photo gallery — the numerous strays we’ve trapped, altered, and placed in homes or barns. Some friendly, some not. Some grown, some kittens. Six* we added to our family.  January ’16 brought in a 15-pound ginger cat, Henry Huggins, now placed with a woman at local Assisted Living.  January 2017’s stray, a smaller version of Cheetah, goes by the name of Tinker — and sometimes Stinker, i.e. he’s not fully adult and acts like a teenager at times.  Very affectionate, playful and approachable — definitely a Keeper. ;o)   *So make that a 7: Sarah Palin, Shiloh, Olivia, Django Reinhardt, Marlene Dietrich, and Tinker.  Sadly, Sarah’s kitten Mohan disappeared after 18 months (as did Charlie Dickens, an adoptee from Polson, MT.)
