This is our second cat, Jasper. We’ve had him for about 4 years or so.
He and our older cat, Hoadley, never got along very well. And Jasper’s always been a bit of a wanderer/hunter/neighborhood socialite. Consequently, we might go days without seeing him.
Since Hoadley died, he’s been hanging around more. Almost as though he senses there is a loss and a role he can fill. It’s been nice having him around.
