Have you ever met a cat that finishes all its cat food? I didn't think so. It was our first hint that something was awry.
Perhaps it is a ...
While dad milked cows, he heard a batch of kittens in the hay mow that "sure fought alot". That was until one of them fell downstairs and was quickly recognized as a raccoon.
1. DH fed the cats their usual cat food ration while mumbing about something about some thieving raccoon.
2. Jay starts to feed the dogs when THERE AROSE A GREAT CLATTER!
3. He sprang to the barn to SEE WHAT WAS THE MATTER
4. AND QUICKLY DISCOVERED
THAT AIN'T NO RACCOON - it's Pedro our billy! And DH may have used up one of his lives or it. He is on a no-grain diet so he decided to supplement himself with the addition of a little cat food.
And here we have the goat proof fence which I thougt was a little over kill. As it turns out, that second line of defense was needed. It appears that his pen in the back no longer keeps him in. He's beeen going over the top of his pen to get out. Jay spent his Sunday pm adding more boards/height to his pen.
