I love him happily turning his face to the sun with squinty eyes.

Thanks again everyone!  :)

I thought I'd share a little Hap story from a few days ago.  I leave for work first and my fiance about 15 minutes after.  As he was heading to his car, he glanced back in our driveway and sees a black cat heading towards our house from past our garage.  After a double take, he realizes that's OUR black cat.  The only thing is - I had just let OUR black cat into the basement to hang out with the girl cats as I was leaving for work.

He called to Hap and told him to come while pointing to the ground.  Hap came right over - yeay training!!  Hap didn't appear to have an injuries, but he was completely poofed and agitated (something I've never seen from this laid back cat!).  He got Hap back in the house and then went in the basement to try and figure out what happened and make sure the girls were still there!  Luckily, both girls were accounted for, but Mike found a pane from our old basement window literally pushed outward into the driveway and broken into two pieces.

We believe that an outdoor cat that had previously been coming around and fighting with our girls through the window came back again.  Our big tough Hap man charged the window, popped it out, and then chased that mean other cat off of our property!  Also, it looks like he was headed back home when Mike found him.  He does love us!  :heart:

I'm still very grateful that Mike noticed him heading back to the house.  Because of that this story still has a happy ending!

Hopefully that outdoor kitty has learned his lesson, and will stay far far away now!   :yelcutelaugh:

It's awesome that he came back! That is such a big fear of mine.
I know my cats love me...but, how much? If they got out...would then come back?

Haha! I hope so Marybelle!  My chasing him off sure didn't work, but now we busted out the true muscle of the house!  :yelcutelaugh:

One my kids getting out and not finding their way back home is a huge fear of mine too!  I could never have an indoor/outdoor cat.  I'd be too worried about where they are and what could be happening to them.  Hap is actually my first cat that has an interest in going outside - he demands it, actually.  I ablige him, but only with a collar and harness on in our fenced yard. 

If it had been one of my skittish girls that ended up outside, though, I'm worried I wouldn't see them again simply because of their own confusion and fear.  :-\

Happy is too cute <3 I love how his face and ears look XD my old 2 cats were indoor/outdoor but I would never do it again. They would pretty much give us no choice, being ferals before, after the busted screens up several times and found a way outside from inside the house(which we never did figure out x.x) we gave up. Our current cat kalvin thinks he wants to be outside but... e.e he actually is terrified once he gets their on a harness and leash. Best of luck with hap :D it seems like he found the perfect human :3

It's always awesome when you can save a homeless kitty, or any animal. There is a gorgeous kitty near my apartment. I tried so hard to earn her trust so I could bring her in and give her a warm home before it got too cold outside, but I never accomplished that. I have been putting food out for her, but she doesn't seem to be coming around anymore. I hope somebody else saved her because it breaks my heart thinking she's out there in the cold. But, the kitty I have now is one I found outside, so that makes me happy.
