Subject: Re: [CHAT] Raccoons, now male cats

My first wife and I had a male cat named Orpheus. He was mostly white 
but had a black nose/mustache and a black patch over one eye. Looked 
sort of like--you know--Hitler.

Orphy was a sweet cat but definitely a few bricks shy.

He often sat in one corner of the dining room and stared at, well, the 
corner. Like he was a true believer waiting for the second coming.

Anyway, when wife one brought son four home from the hospital, and all 
the neighbor women gathered to appropriately "ooh" and "aah," Orpheus 
burst through the cat door with a baby rabbit in his jaws.

One of the Ooers or Aahers screamed and Orpheus--never the most secure 
hunter in the wilds--dropped his prey.

May I re-focus the scene?

Center stage is a woman who is just home from the hospital sitting on a 
living room couch, smiling and probably feeling kind of weak and out of 
it, with a babe in swaddling [whatever that is], and suddenly a baby 
rabbit is racing for its very life all over the living room--hotly 
chased by a cat the looks a lot like Hitler.
