Ok, its true. We have a cat, or more properly, a cat has us.
A year or so ago, this stray female tuxedo cat decided to move into our yard, wreaking havoc on the local lizard, bird, and rodent population.
She'd sit at our back door, meow, and display her trophies--usually the carcass of something she'd just caught and killed. I'm not a cat lover, but if she can catch and kill rodents at her current pace, she's welcome!
We resisted feeding her until she had her first litter somewhere in our yard. She was worm-ridden, underfed, and a mess. After her second litter, we had her spayed, and gave her kittens to friends. My wife even bought her a "bed" and "gourmet" catfood (the really cheap stuff that stinks).
Yup, we have a cat. This was the scene out my back door Sunday morning.
Having a cat really makes me want a dog.
