I am the cat outside the door. I have spent the past winter observing a human. And I do believe that this human would make a good pet.
I wanted to move in with this human last fall, but there was another feline there that was quite territorial. And attempts to enter the house have been met with resistance. There has been no room at this inn for a feline like myself. But the human at this house has fed me through the winter. I found a warm spot near to sleep at a neighbors house. She had a vent near her window which provided me with plenty of warmth. So I have stuck around.
I noticed this last week that something has changed. That little feisty feline is no longer living there. After communicating with the big white cat in the house, I recently learned that the household was hit with the double whammy. I feel for the human and feline in this home. They have suffered great loss in the past couple of weeks.
But I am also seeing an opportunity here. I believe since there is a vacancy in the house I may be able to move into the house. The big white cat is feeling a little lonely. He has never lived by himself. And I have seen that the human is softening up to me. She has been talking to me more. So I am confident that at some point I will be moving in, and I will have a new pet human.
