We came home one day and found this poor skinny ginger and white cat in our backyard. My Mother who was staying with us during some medical care she was receiving immediately took to him. He returned the affection and they fast became friends. We left them to bond.
The next day we heard frantic yells and knocking at our door from my Mother. It turned out that “Chester” was actually three brothers who had for reasons unknown suddenly shown up in our backyard half starving. They all stayed for the summer and when the weather started to turn cooler the brothers and my Mother all moved in together for a winter of warmth and companionship.
