So, due to a gastrointestinal issue that precluded several days in an automobile, Mark was not able to go to the midwest, so I let him back out into the world. He disappeared for most of a day… my assumption is, he had a whole lot of territory-marking to do. Today he came back and demonstrated on at least three occasions that one of the new cats is, in fact, female. The photos below show the immediate aftermath of one such encounter. Normally two cats goin’ at it would not inspire to to take mictures… but this was the first time I’d ever seen two cats using the missionary position. Hell, I’ve never even *heard* of that happening.
