We are clear today.  Last night I heard several cat voices and had to go
sort things out.  A couple of neighbor tomcats were using my side yard to
exclaim their disagreement.  Had my boys all up in legs.  Of course, I at
first worried that the altercation included one of mine so I flew out there
without shoes or flashlight, so I couldn't do much.  As I moved forward
along the north side of my house, I could only make out vague shapes that
growled and moved reluctantly as I approached.  When we reached the back
beds I could make out who they were - but so could my Mick who wanted to get
in on the action.  I moved them on to the back corner  where I couldn't get
w/in 5 ft of them because of bushes and they were still wailing at each
other.  So I ran in (dragging Mick with)and got shoes and beam and went back
to help sort things out.  Eventually, with the aid of a lily stake I got
them to move throught the entry hole and be on their way.  If people are
going to let their precious pets out at night, why don't they get them
