Our cat Tron has been babied most of his life, including when he goes outside. We are very careful to watch him when he is out and about because we share the same concerns that any pet owner has; cars, other animals, and curiosity induced danger… Because we watch Tron, he has never met another cat before, but that changed today when I decided to let him roam on his own. I went to check on him after he’d been at his outdoor adventure for ten minutes and I found him face to face with a neighborhood cat. Surprisingly they had a very mellow encounter and followed eachother around the woods. There was a lot of staring, smelling, and more staring.
