It had been a full moon, as the Mother of Mayhem wrought injustice and outrage. And our favorite cat Velvet was MIA. Much to our relief, she showed up quite traumatized, by the afternoon.
That makes four cats killed in less than a week, just among us and our closest neighbors. Slightly bloody, Baby, Fiona and Bad Kitty appear to have been killed instantly by nothing short of a killing machine.
And across the street... Bad Kitty belonged to our neighbors, a sassy tom that came daily to inspect our food bowls.
They will be missed.
Update: My neighbor spotted two more dead cats near Trinity Lutheran Church on Labor Day... which the buzzards had already found, probably casualties of the same dogs. There needs to be stiff fines for people who let dangerous dogs run amuck in densely populated areas.
