Several times in the past two weeks, I've seen an orange tabby cat in my backyard. Maybe it's the child of Fireball, the cat who had a litter under the front edge of my house--the size of this cat looks about right.

Wish I could figure out how to feed it without giving the local groundhog and raccoon population a bonanza. (The place where the cat comes to sit is not at all close to the front door, and is close to the garbage cans, where I've seen a raccoon visit at least once.)

[livejournal.com profile] esrblog and I just got back from a weekend at TCEP 14, a gaming relaxacon sponsored by some of our fannish friends. It was a great time--especially since they had a con suite with fresh-baked bread machine bread every three or four hours or so. (Ummmm, the chocolate bread. And the apple oatmeal.) We played lots of Puerto Rico, and Power Grid, and other favorites, and I actually won some of them.

In other news, I've been feeding an orange tabby cat that has been hanging around near our front door, in the hopes of encouraging him to get close enough that I can pet him, and perhaps take him to a vet with a view toward adopting him. We even named him Fireball. Right before we left for TCEP, however, we learned from our neighbors that Fireball isn't a he. She's a she, and she recently had kittens in a hole near the wall of our house. (I'd seen the hole, but I didn't realize that it was a cat that had made it.) They haven't seen anything of the kittens since shortly after the birth--bad news for them, probably. :-(

So Fireball was just using me to get enough food for her litter; she's not really interested in us after all. I feel a bit betrayed, illogical though that sounds.
