Neighborly visit

In a bad driving habit born of living alone and thus generally being aware of what might be in my driveway, I got in the car and backed out of the garage today before turning to look behind me as I approached the street. When I did look, standing in the middle of the back seat was Sheldon, the orange tabby from next door. I knew he frequents my garage when I leave the door open, but had no idea he'd take advantage of the open driver's window to find a place to nap. He was not at all alarmed, and waited for me to open a back door for him (after checking to see if the window on the far side happened to be open) before exiting the car and scampering toward home.

I'm going to need to keep Fish out of the car for a while lest he smell the intruder and get upset enough to do something about it. As far as I know Fish has never sprayed (and he's an exclusively inside cat except for the rare escape to the back yard), and I'd just as soon he never get the idea.
