First There Was One
Then there was five, now there are four. I told John cats have kittens and she did. He is surprised how much food a cat and her three kittens can eat. One kitten was run over and killed in the intersection while we were gone one day. The funny thing is one kitten was doing a strange thing today. Our dryer vent is not far from the back door. I kept finding the outside part on the ground. I kept putting it back on. Finally I took some grey (to match the brick) masking tape and taped it on. John found one of the kittens trying to get it off. It was not playing it was working hard trying to get that part off which would have exposed a round hole where the lint and air comes out. Why did that kitten want that off so badly? The cats don't go in the house and don't try to so I'm wondering if the cat smelled a mouse or rat that had gone in that vent. I hope not but people are having trouble with rats this year. We even saw one in the intersection by the post office in the middle of the day, not dead either. A friend told me her tenant told her she had a rat in her mobile rental and the rat ate a hole all the way through her purse getting to a cookie that she had left in it. I wish I had thought to make a video of the kitten with such intent to get that vent opened up.
