Orange Visit

As I was looking through my recent pictures to see what I would post today, I ran across some from last week. It's odd, today we're freezing our buns off, there was slush on the car this morning from it sleeting all night, and yet, last week it was warm enough to have open doors.. Go figure.

While those doors were open, we had a visit. It was not particularly welcome by the furry feminine resident here within. And she made no bones about it to him.

I missed what was happening at first. Star sits on the edge of the carpet when she's watching critters out the door. That way she can run up and scare the bejezzus out of them at the right moment. But this time, she didn't move off the edge of the carpet but sat there chattering in a low grumbly voice.

Well this can't be the ebil squirrel or the norty birdies, those she'd jump out at. So I tried to get a peek at the visitor. Before I could though, he moved, all I heard was the skitter of claws on the cement and then Star dived at the door and let out a mighty hiss.

Get out of here you you... intruder!
I moved slower, trying to get a picture of whoever was causing such a reaction. I mean, sheesh, you'd think Leo was out there! MOL

I got a glimpse of the interloper.

I said go! We don't want you around here!
This is MY house and we already have one more cat than we need!

Surely I can get a better picture...

That's it, keep moving!

Oh there he is!
I've still got my eyes on you!

It's the big orange kitty who lives across the street! The one who's had issues with Leo through this very window! He sits on the broken porch bench and trades unspeakable words with my boy! Sometimes you have to wonder where they learn such language. Well, I'm here to tell you, THIS boy the one who is corrupting my innocent baby Leo with his nasty bad vocabulary!

What are you stopping for? Do NOT sit in MY yard and scratch!

Quit looking back at me! No one said you were allowed to look upon my perfect self!
Get moving again you big orange trespasser! You are catona non grata around here!

He did, after a few more moments, take off, objecting to my presence, not Star's commentary on his person, presence, personality, parentage, and problematic personal hygiene..

I'm sure he'll be back. And I'm sure Star will tell him off again.


Hey, did you know it's the last day to get a brick in the Winnie's Wish Walkway?
And did you see all the sweeties up for adoption? Here they are in the Halloween finery that I did for Chrystal! They sure are awful cute and sure are in need of homes! Please check them out and see if you, or someone you know, could be their forever family!

That orange cat needs to keep to his own property! Good for you, Star, telling him off!

Ugh. We hate introoders too! The one that comes to OUR garden is smelly and NOISY! And you know what's worst? Mommy feeds him tuna. WE don't even get tuna!

The Paw Relations said...

MOL! This post made The Mum laugh.

What is it with other cats thinking they can come in our gardens?

Katie Isabella said...

Star! What IS it about gingers? Remember my ginger cat who comes to MY house and says nasty things to me through the window glass all the way up close to me...purrsonal-like? Well, I learned language from my sisfur who went to the Rainbow Bridge, Amiral Hestorb~ I told ginger off as good as I got, believe you me!

Cats Herd You said...

Good job telling him what for, Star! We get introoders sometimes, too. We even sometimes have them get into a fight right outside our window. The nerve!!

MOL - "catona non grata"

GLOGIRLY said...

Maybe you need a watchdog.

just kidding.
didn't mean to scare you.

; ) Katie

Kat said...

Good job Star! We know how scary it can be when introoders come by. Last summer we had an introoder looking in our window in the middle of the night (scary!!!) but our dog barked him off.
As for us cats, we didn't need to do anything, just a look into our lazer eyes and he was gone.
You have nothing to worry for with Star on the case!

Kisses and purrs xx

You tell em Star!

The only thing *I* (Traveler) didn't like, was that mom ran after him and gave him MY cat food.She's been doing that since the day he came by.
She's been trying to catch him for a while and take him to a no-kill shelter but it must be a feral because it is not very friendly to humans. Poor guy!

Brave sweet Star, you're a mighty watchkitty.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Good work Star, telling that introoder that he is not welcome.

A Tonl said...

That orange is rude!!!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

Its allus good to chase off an introoder cat! They may bring fleas or worse... Like more intooders...

Oui Oui said...

We don't like introoders either. They look funny and smell funny and are uncouth. They should stay where they belong!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Oh Poor Darling Star! Would you like Spitty to come over there and groom your sweet face and wash your ears so you can face that Ornj Introodur with confidence that you are looking your best? Notice, I am not offering to face that Ornj Boy with you, or for you. That, Star darling, is because I am a coward of the first order. I mean, you may as well know the troof. I'm scared of bags, and boxes and clothing and lots of stuff. But I *am* verreh devoted and that counts for something, right? Perhaps you can teach me to be braver. Actually, I am interested in Onyx, the kitty next door. She is an indoor girl and so we can only gaze from distant windows, but I guess maybe I'm not skeered ub her. Hmmm. Now I'm just rambling so I'll stop. Love you!!! XOXOXO
