|at least Melon is more likely to bounce than break should he fall off this wall.|
I started to entitle this
"Melon keeps an eye out for Spring
and also for stray cats who do not belong in Melon's yard."
Unfortunately, Melon thinks Fred and Flora qualify as strays, which makes getting cats in and out rather interesting. There have been some real strays around: adorable cat formerly known as Buster who in his new home is Bentley, adorable little orange baby who I see lurking at the edge of my yard and the rather pitiful long hair Siamese mix I call Bonnie Gone Bad, because s/he looks a great deal like my adored Bonster. The last is shy of people and has had fights with Fred and Melon. If I see it out, I do take it food across the street. I feel sorry for it. I don't quite know how it survived this last winter, but it managed. It's a gorgeous cat. And no, I'm not looking to adopt another.
Maybe I should leave it at Humpty Dumpty.
