We got our kitties back!! I stopped by the pound when I took Beth to work (it’s only about 2 minutes away) and Tigger and Honey were there! Every time we have had a missing cat before, they were not at the pound. But I found out today that there is a man on the next street over from us, who sets traps for cats in his garage, and then he goes out and calls the neighborhood cats to come to him. Of course, the more sociable cats go in there and get trapped, and then he calls Animal Control. They wouldn’t tell me who it is, but I believe I have already figured it out. They told me he hates cats, and I know of a man on that street who has said he hates cats. He has also taught his sons to hate cats. Many years ago, his older son threatened to shoot any cats he saw. Most of our cats stay in our yard when we let them out, but these two don’t. They have to stay in the house now. Honey did not have his rabies shot (they forgot to give it to him when he was neutered last November), so I had to take him to Rachael at the animal hospital, and she is going to shoot him and bring him home tonight. But they were SO glad to be home. As soon as we pulled in the driveway, they started going nuts. The animal control guy said they had been so scared at the pound, and they were. I had to pull Honey out from behind the litter box where he was hiding. I came home and ran in to put Tigger in the house, and left Honey in the car with the AC running, because I was going to take him to the vet. Well, he stepped on the button to put the back window down, so we almost lost him again. It’s going to be hard to keep these two inside, but we’ll have to. Rachael said Honey is running fever now, just from the stress of his ordeal, and he has mostly lost his voice from meowing so much to get out. The animal control guy said he had been meowing at the top of his lungs.
If you want a laugh, go here, and click the link on his site. Brandon has always thought this was funny. It grows on you.
Note to Mrs. B….I’m so glad it’s not 32 degrees down here! But this summer when it’s 100, I’m going to be wishing it wasn’t!
Found out Olivia’s blog wasn’t shut down for her age, but for an inactive email address. Good grief. But my previous comment still stands…..they ought to be shutting down the pornographic sites. They are easily accessible to very young people. If they spent their time shutting down those sites, they wouldn’t have time to notice other minor problems. And porn is against the rules on Xanga.
