Guard Cats

It looks like the girls are outside and unattended, but actually the porch is screened in. It does give them the best of both worlds: they can be “outside” and keep an eye on Henry, while staying safe. It also keeps them from fighting with Henry, though they hiss at him when he walks by.

Henry seems to be remarkably peace-loving for a cat with a torn ear and scarred nose. He disdains arguing with the girls, displaying a splendid indifference to their insults, and when other cats eat his food, he lets me shoo them away.

I wonder if Henry misses living on the porch the way he does in the winter. I thought about leaving the door open for him at night, so he could sleep on the couch, but decided it would be too confusing. All or nothing is probably best in this case.

    Gorgeous girls…nice shot too. They look very healthy & happy.

    Poor ol’ Henry……I’m sure he is very grateful for your care..

    Henry is too happy to have a place to stay and someone to care for him, nothing the girls will do to that will bother him enough to care, considering what he probably went through out there, alone, he can endure a hiss or two, no problem.
