Mom update: She continues to improve and even got out of bed for a little while today.

This beautiful cat is Smokey. She has been hanging around Tiger's house since last August. The Mom and Dad feed her and built her a snug little shelter for the winter. She and Tiger tolerate each other, but they aren't really friends. At least they have never been seen touching each other. Once or twice the Mom has left the door open for Tiger and Smokey has come into the house, looked around, and gone back outside. Maybe some day she'll decide to come in and stay. Tiger would probably be OK with that and Motor would probably like it, but K. C. probably wouldn't like it at all. Really, it's impossible to tell how the other cats would react until or unless it happens. In the meantime, Smokey shows up for meals and lounges around in the yard most of the day. She either uses her shelter or goes elsewhere at night.

                                    The cat who lives outside is Smokey.
                                    When it comes to meals, she is never pokey.
                                               She likes it outdoors,
                                               Even when it pours,
                                    But maybe some day come inside will Smokey.

We are so happy to hear that your mom is improving. Smokey sounds like a cat with a mind of her own. Or maybe that's all cats?
