The tabby-white tuxedo female mentioned in passing here seems to be a new cat settling down in the area. btmao had seen her in the buffer zone, a school, between Area1 and Area2 a few times since. But she’s not bribeable with either food or friendship it seemed. Just now, returning in the downpour from a short trip to the outside, I saw her huddled against a wall, inside the school. This is my first encounter with her.
With the school closed for the holidays, the premises is quite a safe haven for now. But things will surely change once school reopens in the new year. We hope to be able to get her to hand over her mojo before then.
