RE: Cat News

Sorry about your cats, it's pretty distressing to lose them. 
I have two strays hanging around our house now. They are not really
feral - one of them will not let me touch it but will come close when we
go out of the house and meow, obviously looking for food. The other will
let me pet it. But they are very thin so I don't think they belong to
anyone. I have not decided what to do about them yet. I think I am past
the point where I can just ignore them. If I keep them hanging around
and they go into our back yard and our dogs see them, they'll be killed,
not a good thing. If I take them to the pound ditto. Adding two more
inside cats is more than I want to deal with (and probably more than
husband will put up with), but one might be possible. Guess I should
make  a decision soon though.

I am now down to only two outside cats.  I have lost 5 more this spring.

The total loss for the town is about 20.  We have a pack of coyotes, and
they are eating them all.  The mayor has declared open seaon on the
coyotes, but I'm not sure that is a very good idea considering the mind
set of most people here where firearms are concerned.  I have two
outside cats remaining.  So far they have stayed in my small (high)
fenced back yard.  I am still feeding 3-4 cats at the abandoned house
around the corner.  This has been a bad year for cats in LaGrange.

The upside of having fewer cats in town is that we are suddenly having
more birds.  The downside is we are also seeing more squirrels, snakes
and mice. 
I'm hoping people around here might notice the interconnectedness (?) of
life around us, but I know that's just wishful thinking...
