I Think I Saw Your Cat This Morning

I think I saw your cat this morning -- you know, the one you have not seen for a while.

I know I have seen him several times before in my yard, arguing noisily and at length with other neighbors' cats. And even when I have not seen him I can tell that he has been there because he seemed to believe that my front door was a good place to leave "p-mail".

The cat that I saw this morning was dead on the side of the road, clearly the victim of a losing argument with an auto.

This makes me really sad, because I love cats. I have two of my own and have had as many as six at one time. I know that your cats are a really important part of your household and how awful it feels when you lose one.

I just take this opportunity to remind everyone that there is nothing good that can happen to your cat outside your house. Dogs, kids, autos, racoons, opossums, hawks, chemicals, rain, snow and cold can injure or kill.

The neighbors do not want your cats in their yards. Your little girl kitty can acquire a future litter that you will soon have to find homes for.

So keep your cats in your house. You will be doing yourself, your neighbors and your cats a big favor.

Thomas, that is awful!  I feel the same way.  I don't like when people get sick of their pets and throw them outside to fend for themselves.  Why bother getting one in the first place?  They should be treated like part of the family!  Have a great day!

Tammy: Thanks for the comment.  Yours was the only one I got.

I would have thought that more readers would weigh in on this one.
