Red was visiting with some of the Mansion residents on their back porch Monday and he turned his head and noticed Summer, a stray cat who has adopted the Mansion, sitting behind a rocking chair watching him.
Red is the Dean Martin of dogs, he is Mr. Cool. And he just glanced sideways at Summer before deciding to ignore here. She sat by the chair as we walked into the Mansion and Red didn't even waste a glance on here, although she kept a watchful eye on him.
Summer will be spayed and given her shots and bloodwork this week, it is not possible for her to move into the Mansion right now. One of the residents has a serious allergy to cats and the Mansion staff said they could not put any patient at any kind of risk. It might be possible for her to come inside at some other point.
Summer has made a good move coming there, she is fed regularly and has warm and dry shelter outside of the Mansion. Several people in town and on the staff would happily take her in if it became necessary, but she is doing very well where she is. She has lots of people loving her and caring for her.
The residents can visit her outside if they wish, and she has a fine life.
I'll keep you posted on any Summer updates and thanks again for helping to pay her medical bills. She will be a healthy cat as well as a loved one.
