Did anyone read that raving column on the editorial page by the bird man? He said that cats are evil and dangerous so they should be kept in the house to protect the birds and other wildlife. To tell you the truth, I am not all that fond of birds. They crap all over my car. As for the rest of the endangered wildlife, primarily mice, I have never had a mouse in this house. They won’t even come in the yard. Last time I saw mice was in an apartment I had in Manhattan…and it was full of them. The only birds my cats have killed are Robins. That is sad to me, and if I catch them in the act, I free the robin…but, robins are stupid. They waddle around on the ground and are fat and slow. I have lots of cardinals, but they are smart and fast and stay off the ground. I also have a lot of crows and the cats learned not to fool with them.
It is true that cats are evil and destructive. They did a number on Sunday’s paper last week and they eat plants, and break things. That is why I let them outside. They wear themselves out chasing one another around the yard, and when they come in, they nap. As if I could stop them from going outside. They dart past me so fast, I don’t even see them
