So we got a new cat this weekend from our local shelter. Now the family has grown to 3 dogs and two cats! My friend told me I officially qualified as a zoo. Our neighbors have been trying to get rid of their mice, and some how ran them onto us. So I decided that putting out poisons scares me (I don't want one of our animals or a neighborhood animal to get into it), so I thought having a cat around might help. I know you are thinking don't you have a cat? Yes, but she doesn't have the game plan. She runs up to the mouse as fast as she can, and then stops and looks a it. The squirrels in our yard will actually sit next to her because she is so unthreatening. The new cat is black with a white chest and feet. She is about a year old. She is quite the little pistol. She doesn't sit still ever, and I have a scratch on my chin, neck, and hand. She loves to play so I think she will be good at keeping everything ran away. There was a beautiful calico there, but it wasn't spunky at all! So I thought she would be better. Fate has only growled at her once, and we haven't had any fights yet.
