I made a new friend today. Her name, according to the tag on her collar, is Alley. Coincidentally I met her in the back yard, not far from the alley. I would guess she's about seven months old, and she's very cute and affectionate. Unfortunately she is a little too curious for her own good and loves to climb. I had to coax her down off the roof a couple times, and out of a tree. I thought it might be best to walk down the alley with Alley and guide her home, lest she get herself into trouble.
