I'm sure I've said this before but around Mother's Day we finally saw the cat that has been lurking around our house. Anyway she's really cute and Sweet Pea decided to name her Sparkles. Well she's an outside cat and she's been coming and going as she pleases since we saw her. Oh and for awhile we thought she was pregnant but we found out that she was nursing but we never heard or saw her kittens. That was until Friday. Here she comes tramping back to come eat when I hear Sweet Pea "Mommy I see a little black cat and it's ugly." So I go look and don't see anything and tell her if she sees it again to come get me-she does a few minutes later and sure enough it's a black kitten and it's really cute. Turns out it's Sparkles baby but the kitten is still pretty skittish and it won't let me near it. The weird thing is that since Sparkles and her baby have come to the house neither one of them have left which isn't like her. Usually she would disappear for a few days (I'm sure to take care of her baby), and now she just lays on the porch like she owns the place. But now we've run into a problem our neighbors have these really mean dogs that eventually killed David's dog about 6 months ago. Surprisingly his dog lived for about 10-13 years but in the end those mean dogs got him. Anyway I saw the ringleader snooping around our house which makes me mad and scared because of Sparkles and her kitten. I'm usually one who doesn't believe in animal cruelty but I would so make an exception with these dogs. They really are mean and cruel and attacked my dog that I had a couple of years ago and well we never saw him again so who knows what happened. Anyway David and I are thinking of poisoning some meat-I know that sounds cruel but really they've killed one of our dogs we know for sure and the other we've speculated. And I really am an animal lover but not when it comes to a pack of mean dogs. Oh and the neighbors could care less and we live in the country so there are no fences and they can come and go as they please.
