The Brief Biography of a Peeping Tom (cat)
Or, The cat who adopted me, the heartwarming story of a healthcare professional who has found some of her happiness in association with a lovable, talkative, sometimes vexing feline lothario

By Betty Sallee He doesn't have a fancy name as he is a stray cat who has adopted me.
I call him simply "Tom" because he is a male. But we might dub him "Peeping Tom". The reason he is Peeping is not so illustrious either.
He has a way with the ladies and two of the outside cats are female. The "outside" cats are ones people have dropped on the side of the road out here in the country, 12 miles North of Campbellsville, KY near Highway 210, and somehow they end up at my house.
He arrived on a cold, rainy day
He has been here since he was only a few weeks old. Someone dropped him and when I found him it was very cold and raining, he was soaked and half starved. He learned quickly that he could live under my old house and I would take care of him and feed him. So, he likes and trusts me.
However, one day he was caught trying to romantically entice one of the females and I "shooed" him away quite firmly.
So, for weeks every time I went out to feed him, he would peek over the porch to see what kind of mood I was in before coming completely out to eat. It was during that time that I snapped the picture.
He is a marvelous outdoor kitty. When I go to the garden or anywhere outside he walks along beside me and talks to me the entire time. He is very vocal!
