I told the friend I'm calling her Cat Balou, Lulu for short. I'm only there for an hour each Tuesday and Friday. But this is a house-hold full of animals. My ladies have full time home care staff; three women who take turns spending the night there and make sure they are well cared-for, not to mention a doctor who does house calls. DO NOT picture a rich house hold. This is just what works for them. I show up every Tuesday and Friday at 3 and stay for about an hour. But their three regular care-givers all have dogs, and they have two cats. The primary care-giver has an incredibly soft spot for animals, so you never know what will show up there. NO, do NOT picture animal hording. I joke that these two ladies (80 and 82) have all of the advantages of pets, none of the work, and the house is immaculate. But I never know what will greet me when I get there. The primary care-giver has huge dogs, and one day had to take them to work with her (with the encouragement of my friends). I think one is a mastiff. I'm talking dogs that might outweigh me, and I'm not a lightweight. Then there's the cats. I always go up there with dog treats in my bag. Two of the care-givers have little doggies (we're talking under ten pounds, I think a peke-poo and a shitty-poo-poo) who immediately greet me. Yah, it's all about the dog treats in my purse.

Skittle,
Did you catch anything yet? Hope your kitty gets caught! Kitty needs to be home again with Mommy!

I carry them in a pocket at work...I just wish i would remember to empty the pockets before I wash them. Laundered dog treats are icky and they get all over everything.

Nothing yet. Something was in the trap last night- the food was gone and the towel I had in there for bedding was all tousled. Someone must have let whatever it was out? Anyway, I got another call from someone saying he was looking at the cat in his yard right now. I ran over there (took me 5 min), but he had already run off. We walked around calling and shaking a food dish, but there was no sign. I moved the trap to the guy's yard who says he sees him about once a week. Hopefully it will be less likely to be disturbed there, and I'll be much less likely to catch a wild animal. He said he will keep an eye on it and call again if he sees anything. It's looking pretty hopeful, but I still hate to get my hopes up too much, you know?
