No pictures this time. Amber was waiting by the bowls on the porch this morning. She retreated to the sidewalk when I came out but was on the second step by the time I was close enough to put her food out. I think she's realized that she's protected on three sides and can hear anyone/anything trying to sneak up on her on the open side;she's a lot more relaxed about eating and sticks around longer. Plus anybody else is going to have to be pretty confident to come this close to the house.
Where she goes afterwards? I'm not sure, but the yard has plenty of places for a small kiitty person to lay up and never be seen.
