I went into the conservatory to do some chores and saw Tondo sitting in an open window. I moved to close the window, because it was getting chilly, when I saw Earl Grey under the window looking up at Tondo. The window is only about 3 feet above ground, so the two of them were quite close to each other. They were not swearing at each other or puffing themselves out, but I think Tondo was trying to stop Earl Grey from coming in.

I always think of Tondo as being small and meek, but next to Earl Grey he looked luxurious. Even though Earl Grey is large, he looked thin and pitiful by comparison. His fur looks rough close up, such as you see on outdoor cats, who are always out in all weathers and are never groomed.

I think Earl Grey has fallen on hard times. I don't know why it should be the case. There are plenty of mice around, as Tilde shows me practically every night. The weather is mild. Perhaps he is unwell or has lost some of his territory. I hope he comes in later and doesn't quarrel with Tondo. I would leave some food out for him, but I am afraid of attracting the foxes.

Tondo is merely showing earl grey that he likes looking at him and having him around such as rambo with ti-gris....some of my strays love to come in the basement window, although i immediately stomp on the floor to scare them back outside... I think earl grey feels safe in the conservatory and feeling safer, he is happier...tondo is use to seeing him and likes the company i do hope earl grey is not sick but rather, looking for a safe haven to sleep

There is a lot of mice in the garden, Arline.

I hope you are right, Suzanne. I don't want them to fight.

Maybe they have developed a healthy respect for each other. Be so nice if Earl Grey could become tamer. Hope he's not sick. xx

Actually I think he needs a safe place where he can rest and sleep peacefully. In addition he also enjoys your food. And he seems to get on well with Tondo. Who knows ........ a newcomer at home ?

I found the conservatory window wide open today. I don't leave it like that myself. I think Tondo and Earl Grey must have had a bit of an exchange and pushed the window open.

I think if they were going to fight they would of done it by now as Earl has been coming for a feed for a long time now xxx

That's why I pity the strays, they looked distressed. Poor Earl Grey. I hope he'll have regular food.
