Oh, wait. The gray cat just showed up. He was making his mating call, so I guess he doesn't know where striped cat has gone either. Now he's lying on the walk in the back yard, looking very sad.
Well, I did say I wanted my back yard back. Now I want the kittens back. I'm going to be worried about them, especially whenever I hear coyotes howling at night. Be careful what you wish for, I guess.
