aka Virbius. A kitty that moved in under the house on 3 Oct 2009 and has now taken up
residence inside anytime someone is at home. She's a runaway for sure because she's very domestic.
If we can find out who Virb belongs to she'll get to go home. I'd hate to lose one this special.
But until then we'll treat her like family. This one is a real sweetie, gentle, and *very* friendly.

Update: 24 Oct 2009. We found Virby's home and family by going to the vet yesterday to check out
signs of tapeworm and presence of a microchip. Afterward we contacted the family and walked her
home. Poor thing had been chased away by local free-roaming dogs just about the time we found her
confused under the house. It's nice that Virby (who is really "Pepper") is back with family *and*
somewhere close by for a visit once in a while.

This turned out well for everyone. A kitty got to go home, I made some new friends, and the vet
completely comp'd the checkup! Win-win-win!

They have a way of getting attached to us (or visa versa) :-)
