Lupe's whiskers

She still has all but the ones above her eyes, which have mysteriously vanished. Lupe (this is the name we use; her "real" name rhymes, but we'd feel too silly to call her by it and she answers fine to Lupe) is the friendly feline next door. Her people don't arise early enough to suit her appetites, so we've taken to keeping some Tender Vittles around to be made available upon request. When Lupe's hungry, she appears at the catio doors (French doors opening onto a patio, always attractive to cats) and vocalizes, raising the level of intensity until someone responds and invites her in. Cats and their whiskers are not happily parted.
