The first day moving into our home, an orange cat was watching us. The next day I arrived, there were two orange cats watching me. The third day, there were THREE cats. I thought to myself, if I come tomorrow and there are four cats, that would be crazy! No fourth cat on the fourth day, but the watchful kitties would go inside if I left the door open while moving boxes so I called my realtor to have him ask the previous owner if she abandoned her cats. I was told they were the "neighborhood cats" and the guy next door feeds them. Since we never saw the guy next door and the possible food dish was completely empty, we started feeding them and named the boys Morris and Bruce and the girl Allie. We already had seven of our own cats so my husband was emphatic that these kitties stay outside. I complied (even through the Arizona summer!) until the boys were inadvertently locked in the attic of the abandoned house next door. I busted them out and they all became inside only after that. Now they never have to worry about the heat, rain or anything and have every comfort they could want.
