Well as you can see its no small wonder that I have a kitty problem here in Pokeberry. All the bird feeders are tucked in here and there near the carport/patio, so we can see the birds from the kitchen, the patio and the pool. Unfortunately there are lots of places a kitty can hide here, under a shrub or between pots. This morning Pokeberry has had two little kitty's visit, a black one and a gray. I think the gray is the mother and the black is one of the kittens that were behind the garage earlier this summer. I haven't seen the gray kitten recently, she must have made someone else's yard her stomping ground or perhaps she has been caught and made into a pet? (I hope) I'd love to adopt this little black kitty, but I do have two small parrots that would most certainly object--and my lease also says 'no cats'. I never know when the little guy will show up, nor do I know where goes when he isn't here stalking birds. I guess I can't begrudge him the odd sparrow, sigh.. but I do wish he had a home elsewhere.
