This lovely cat showed up last Fall and hung around the outskirts of our property for several weeks.
As time went by she came closer and I started leaving food for her on the back sidewalk.
I tried to get her to come to me and after a lot of food and coaxing she finally let me get close enough to pet her. Then after that she decided it was time to come closer and get MORE free food. Now she will let me pick her up and pet her but she still remains an outside cat.
Mistletoe prefers to live in the garage. She really likes Nine Lives canned food best but she will eat dry food at times too.
Around Christmas I decided we should name her. That is how she got the name Mistletoe. Mistletoe also has 6 toes on each foot.
Since she has picked us to live with, I guess all we can do is accept it(-:
You may remember our other cat passed away late last summer. I was not planning on getting another cat.
I guess that plan has changed.
Jack has another idea about what we should do with Mistletoe, but we won't go into it in this post.
