This is not my cat. No one seems to know who he belongs to exactly, but he clearly belongs to someone. He’s been terrifying the neighborhood for months. Since we lost our dogs, he has decided to claim the backyard. Last night he appeared at the back door, ready to come in. Heaven only knows what he would do once inside–because it isn’t just other cats he’s gone after. People have been the recipient of his orneriness too.
If he would just channel that energy into gopher hunting, I’d be willing to put up with some of his attitude. He says he’s working on it but so far, no sign of any dead gophers.
