Now we know Ponder Lee's true name; it's Haxley or Hacksly or something of the sort. This lively and funny striped cat (tabby stripes on top and spots beneath; gray with tawny features; black stockings and black tail tip) does, in fact, live in the general vicinity that we had presumed. It was a surprise to learn that she's over three years old. We're still going to keep some sustenance available for those times when the principal people in her life are traveling. Food can't be left out around here with the expectation that its intended consumer will be the one who makes it disappear. We first met Ponder Lee when she was up on the roof, tapping on the windows with her paws and making vocal requests to come indoors.
