Congrats on your new kitty, Jim. I like the talkers! She may not be a

Maisy is in/out at her whim.Just got her a cat door with a sensor that only
allows her to open it. Collar pendant emits a light pulse every few seconds.
She was rescued by a neighbor who had 3 big dogs & seven cats at that time.
Former owners had a new puppy that thought she was a chew toy. When our
pretty Cricket (a black manx) died, Maisy moved in. Wanted to be an only cat
I guess. She has her hind claws, but still gets picked on by some of the
Maisy catches mice & birds, almost catches squirrels. She also "scratches"
on my baskets & rug.
re the food bowl thing. Maisy always wants a few "fresh" bits of cat chow in
the dish, then she will eat the rest.
