    Let me introduce to you, Ms. Jazzy. Technically she belongs to our neighbors but has decided that I am her new best friend! When she sees me or hears my voice she comes running across the driveway to follow me all over our yard! Needless to say Stratton is not thrilled with this at all! ;) When Jazzy first showed up next door she kind of creeped me out :oops: Her coloring makes her kind of ugly and scarey!! But once you get to know her she is a little love bug! She has a daughter but she is too skittish to become acquainted with :rolleyes:

    She likes to sit on the old bench with me or the front steps. She also follows from the front yard to the back yard, into the garage...

    Ohhh, she's a cutie. Don't you just love watching kitties run? I'm glad she has you for a neighbor. Maybe she'll decide to stay. Stratton will really pout then, though!

    I love her brindle colouring. She certainly seems to be enjoying herself keeping you company. :stew2:

    OH, how adorable. I really like the brindle color, never knew what that coloring was called until Eileen said it.

    I think she's lovely. :D It's nice to have company in the garden. Our two follow me around too, just to check on me and make certain I don't do anything wrong.

    That's a nice-looking cat. She can look playful just sitting still. I can see that you guys have become pals already.

    What a cute kittie, not ugly at all, beautiful brindle. I am sure Stratton will get used to her eventually, you are lucky she has adopted you.

    Well ,I think Ms. Jazzy is very pretty. I had a kitty like her once upon a time... She looks friendly and it's fun to have a garden friend. I love your bench too!

    Kay I should have gotten a better picture of the bench, I didn't even think about it :rolleyes: I also should have moved the hose out of the way!! I'm not much of a photographer :D My husband built me the bench several years ago. I told him he should mass produce them and sell them at the farmer's market. He said "Heck No!" This way I have a one of a kind :D

    Today I've learned a new word, brindle. Thanks Eils :)

    Strats, how is everything going with your new arrival?
