It's a Hard Knock Life ... by Weezilou

It's a Hard Knock Life ...

We spent all day today unpacking, and getting the house in order the way we like it. Ken suggested we go out for dinner, but I wanted to cook something simple, and as I was dishing up, Ken looked onto the back porch and said, "Look who's here!" My dear little "Not Fred" So shocking to see he grew much thinner over the winter months, and not everyone has been nice to him in his cat world. We're here to set things right for him again, and if you'd like to read about him as we said good-bye before leaving, this is how I hope to see him again soon: https://365project.org/Weezilou/album-excess/2016-11-03
Yay!!!!!

@lifepause He got some halibut skins with his dinner tonight, so life will be good for him again... Thanks, Jae!

I knew it was him as I scrolled down! He has had a hard winter by the looks if him. I bet he was pleased to see you! Fav !

@pamknowler isn't it still the middle of the night? When you arrive, this is the hour you'll be wanting to head to bed! ...we were SO glad to see Not Fred. Ken said he also saw Dinah today, but no sign yet of Buttercup. And I haven'[t started watching for raccoons, but with cat food out, they'll be coming around again!

@Weezilou yes it's 3am! My brain won't go to sleep!

@pamknowler bugger... I get it though... all I want to do is "play with photos"!
June 7th, 2017  
Perfect picture! You captured his personality perfectly. He seemed to be happy to see you. Or maybe the food?
June 7th, 2017  
I know he's so happy to see you back again! Nicely captured.

@carlasmith @linnypinny Thank you both! Ken and I feel so good that he came here, and you can believe we'll be giving him the best of care while we're here! His plaintive eyes and hesitant step just tug at my heart!

No wonder he looks worried.
June 7th, 2017  
Ohhhh poor little Not-Fred! He does look so nervous. Can't wait to see a shot of Dinah too!
June 7th, 2017  
@joysfocus Not so long before you can meet them all in person!
June 7th, 2017  
Sweet "not Fred" is saying "where have you been and why were you gone for so long". He looks like he really missed you! Glad you have a furry friend there too!

Beautiful markings but such a worried face and eyes. Poor guy...
June 7th, 2017  
such sad eyes, but that will change now
June 7th, 2017  
@gardenfolk It pains me to see those eyes, so often on the brink of fear. He'd made great strides by the end of last fall, and we did get messages from friends who were either feeding him or reporting on his whereabouts in town. We'd loaned the house to a music school the last few months, so it's my hope they'd fed him...which would have been why he was here right on schedule for dinner!
June 7th, 2017  
@Weezilou Well, I hope you have him wrapped around your trust in no time!
June 7th, 2017  
My gosh, he is in poor shape, what a shame others haven't been so kind to him as you.
June 7th, 2017  
Aw ... so sweet!
June 7th, 2017  
A wonderful capture. You have caught those plaintive eyes brilliantly.
June 7th, 2017  
Aw, those eyes say it all, don't they? Welcome back!
June 7th, 2017  
Awww! He's been watching for you I'm sure. I know he is so glad you are there!
June 7th, 2017  
He does look a little worse for wear. He'll be glad you're back :)
June 7th, 2017  
Great capture :)
June 7th, 2017  
Super cute capture!
June 7th, 2017  
Great welcome. Nothing has chance much. Lovely capture
June 7th, 2017  
Awww what a cutie................it must be so hard to leave him for the winter!
June 7th, 2017  
@radiogirl He's a feral and I've never been able to touch him, but we do feed him. I've asked around and we know others look after him, too, though I think, perhaps, not as well as we do... I restocked the cupboard with cans of the good stuff for him!
June 7th, 2017  
@pyrrhula I love that you recognize nothing has changed much! I have to think hard to come up with different things to share for those who have seen much of what happens locally here!
June 7th, 2017  
What a lovely picture. He's got such a sad look on his darling face.
