    Buddy and Cali spend their mornings and much of the afternoon on the porch. They are available if anyone is going out, if there are treats offered, and if anyone has an urge to pet. Sometimes they just manage to hang on: just hangin' on.jpg

    As your feline population entertains itself with capturing the never ending rodent population do they present you with "presents" of the recently departed? My neighbor could start a mortuary with the "presents" her two hunters bring home.

    Don't I wish! Our cats are on a catch and release program. Whatever they happen to occasionally catch, they bring to the porch and then release. Birds fly away, mice and voles flee, and our cats just are not into killing or even maiming.

    Sounds and looks like your cats are at peace with the world.

    Hey Jane maybe you could get Buddy and Cali to come here and teach the cats in our neighbourhood NOT to kill.

    No Eileen, Buddy and Cali are homebodies, plus they know where the treats are here! Husband says we have "Quaker cats" since they are so peaceloving.
