I just heard a commotion in our backyard.
There was the cat. With a full-size squirming squirrel in its mouth. I yelled, "What are you thinking! Let go of that! That doesn't belong to you!"
The cat dropped the squirrel and they ran in opposite directions. Now even though the squirrels we have around here are imports (it's rare to see a Western squrriel) and I'm a cat person, my sympathy was twith the squirrel.
