He can't come inside.
He still has pus in his wound.
But he looks at me with sad eyes, and I give him food.
He's using the hutch I built for him.
I think he has other ports in the storm.
Still, I now have a third cat. With Alpha across the Veil, I've got Beta, Gamma, and now ... Delta.
Cats are proof that the Goddess loves us and wants us to be happy.
