2/26/16 Feral Cats and Fenced In Dogs

You may or may not remember, but we were practically overrun with feral cats in the summer. Pretty much the cats have disappeared. Mom still has a hay-filled shelter for them in the side (unfenced) yard that backs up on the woods/swamp.

I went out to brave the 5″ of melting snow in the backyard to go potty, and saw a beautiful, black, feral cat peeping out of the cat house. His eyes (her eyes?) were like big silver crescent moons. I saw Mom watching, but played it cool and didn’t say anything. The cat sat very still.

Meanwhile, the dog a house away (our neighborhood is weird, we are next to a wooded area and I can see through the fence, through the woods, to the people who would be living next to us except for the woods are in the way) anyway – their dog was out again and was going nuts when he (she?) saw me. He was barking and lunging and racing back and forth. That one, I stopped and gave The Stare to, and raised my front paw like the Queen Who Could Not Be Bothered. I think those people leave their dog out too long, Mom says the dog sounds like it is hoarse from barking, and I agree. Because of the odd angle we live on, Mom isn’t sure which suburb the dog is in (if you throw a rock to the right, you hit Tinley Park. To the left, you hit Oak Forest) so she mentioned it to a Sheriff friend of hers. She tried going over there one time but no one was home and the dog was inside. Hopefully, someone will do something about him. He barks a lot. At least the snow is melting and it wasn’t too cold today.

I just looked out the back window and the big black cat is still there. I can only see his (her?) eyes from here. The rest of her is like a black shadow. Mom and I are going to keep an eye on the cat.

Woof! Love, Maggie
