Default Give Birds a Break. Lock Up the Cat.

Give Birds a Break. Lock Up the Cat.

excerpt from above:
Quote:
I am not superstitious. I have always been a cat lover. Yet if there is one thing I donít want crossing my path right now, itís another bored, carnivorous tourist, another recreational hunter on the prowl. Our yard is already a magnet for half a dozen neighborhood cats, all of whom I know to be pets with perfectly good homes of their own. But they are free to roam, while we, between our burbling bird fountain out front and our well-stocked bird feeders in back, just happen to look like a felid Six Flags ó now more than usual with the busy fall migrations under way.

I would like to complain to the catsí owners, demand that they come claw their property from mine, but I donít. Iím a coward, complaining is unneighborly, and Iím all too aware that I could be accused of hypocrisy...
