Since today is Friday the 13th I thought I'd take this opportunity to post a photo of my cat. Two years ago this stray cat started visiting my garden and I began to feed him. As everyone knows once you feed a stray animal it basically becomes yours and you can expect it to stay around.
To be honest I didn't start to feed him out of the goodness of my heart. My reason for feeding him were because I thought a black cat would look cool in a garden with black flowers. In exchange for food he keeps the garden free of squirrels and rats and will help me plant bulbs/seeds by pawing at the dirt when I'm digging. I look the other way when he catches a bird or butterfly and forgive him when I'm startled to find him laying below some plants. What's an urban garden without an urban cat?
Happy Friday the 13th.
