BRK Post 43

Woke up at 1:45 this morning to a strange cat in the tipi. He had slipped under the canvas and was caterwauling to get Bella's attention. Long story short, amorous activities finished around 3 but the needy tom didn't leave but kept meowing, leaving, coming back, meowing, etc all night.

He is pretty skittish but I was able to pet him a bit. But after an hour of his calling and his love interest ignoring him I ushered him out. Then he came back. I don't blame him for following his instincts but really wish he would take a hint.

Spent all day doing clean up, organizing, repairing a urine diverter. Bunches of stuff that don't make for good pictures.

I prepped the tipi for the tour tomorrow, it had gotten messy from the daily cycle of wake, work, bed and things piling up. Feels much better to have it in order again.

During the day little visitor cat came by and Josiah says his name is Blackberry/Like Bear. Got a picture of him and Bella next to each other. You can see the difference in size and he looks more square in the face.

Hey Kyle...looks like you're going to be up to your you know what in kitty cats!!  Lots of luck kiddo!  Glad you're doing well, and keeping your tipi neat.  Guess what....Grandpa sold the "blue beast".  We're finally down to one vehicle.  Did you enjoy your goodies ?  I hope sp.

Granpa's b-day is next Sat...but Mom and Jordi are coming on Thursday...I wish we could FaceTime...that would be really great!  Well...going now.  Stay well..

Love and miss you

Grandma

Bear was very affectionate when he saw me feeding Bella. He let me pet him, he is very stocky and has thick fur. As soon as the food was gone he got skittish again and ran away.
