A couple of weeks ago, an acquaintance of mine went into the hospital. I took care of his cat and dog. He also feeds some stray cats. Most don’t trust me enough to let me catch them and put them into a carrier, but this one followed a handful of food right into my carrier. It’s a beautiful gray cat who’s very gentle and purrs very readily. My daughter, inspired by the season and the cat in the Halloween movie Hocus Pocus, named him Binx. He’s blended into the household easily. Here he is relaxing and hoping for some food.
