Planted tomatoes with the hopes of getting tomato hornworms (Manduca quinquemaculata) because they’re cute! I have 3 tomato plants so I’m not concerned with caterpillars affecting my tomato harvest, if anything tomato plants produce more than I can eat

This strange cat has been lurking in my garden. My neighbors recently divorced and the wife moved to Portland and left her cat behind. I guess she’s coming back to get him later this month and I really fucking hope she does cause this cat won’t go back to their house; the husband and her brother still live in the house but it’s clear the cat doesn’t give a fuck about them. I’ve seen him in our yard the past few days every time I look out the window. He meowed at me today for the first time but other than that, he’s very anti-social and will run if you approach him. I’m sort of hoping he chooses to live with us instead because only an asshole would leave their cat behind and he deserves better. I’m going to buy cat food soon and invite him to eat because he’s looking skinny. I’ll post updates if the neighbor ever comes back or if the cat chooses our household instead
