Those of you who have been following my vent about the cats next door will understand this post! This morning Tanna was having a FIT to go out - and since it's raining I thought it would be safe, so I let him out without checking to see if there were any neighborhood criters around. There were! Mama cat and two of the kittens were on my front porch! Well, being the great hunter that he is, Tanna almost got himself a couple of cats - until his mean old mama made him come in and leave them alone! Maybe tho it might be enough of a scare to keep them OUT OF MY FENCED YARD! One can only hope so. My co-manager on Beagle Bay suggested that I cover the chain link fence with tarps to keep the dogs from seeing the cats on the other side. So today after work I'm checking out prices for tarps. Wish me luck! I'll try anything that will keep my dogs quiet so I don't have to re-home them - anything but de-barking, that is!
