So we've (and by 'we' I mean Steve) been adopted by this black cat in our neighborhood, who has been hanging out at our house for a couple of months. Steve named him 'Ben-10' (the boys' fave cartoon show) and got him cat food, some kitty toys and lets him in the house whenever he comes a-knockin.
Yesterday, this nice young couple stopped by and asked if we'd been feeding their black cat. Turns out the 'stray' lives around the corner and is getting FAT from mooching off all the neighbors. His name is OLIVE (lol, how's that for a koinkidink, Megs?) and his owners have been wondering why he's getting so round and who he's been stealing cat toys from. They said he's very social, and to please not feed him as the Mrs. is really allergic to cats unless they feed him some special food.
Poor Skyn was crushed, but I said Olive could come and hang out with him any time, just no more freeloading.
