I prevented a murder in the living room this morning.

I love my two cool black cats, Darrel and his bother Darrel. The one thing I don't like about them is how they love to kill things. I guess that's kind of ironic, since I got them because I had rats in the garage. The rats would go under the hood of my car and chew the electrical wires. I don't mind if they kill the rats, but I hate it when they kill birds. I can always tell when they have a new victim because they have a special noise they make. I call it their kill sound. Mmmrow mmmrow. This morning I saw one of the cats trying to get something under the bookcase. I shut the cat up in the bathroom and looked under there with a flashlight to see who the unlucky victim was. It was an alligator lizard. He didn't look like he was too beat up yet, I threw a towel over him and scooped him up. He's been released back into the wild.

I keep all my brats, except Gabby, inside. They have gotten a few rats that came onto the cat porch, but, then again, if the rat was stupid enough to go on a porch that HAS to smell of CATS, then it has it coming. Improving the gene pool, so to speak. Gabby is a good old gal, she's not much of a hunter, even the mockingbirds leave her alone because they realize she's not a good hunter.

s. U did good things They are far better than human beings. We behave as if we are the masters but still can not pray for the wellness of our neighbor What a sad thing...We go on accumulating and eating even though we know that our neighbor is starving along with his family..Can 't we give them at least half of our food and save them? Why should we eat more and more which could not be digested ....and only adds some cholesterol to our body?

This is what it looks like; it's not the lizard, but it is an alligator lizard. "Northern alligator lizard". Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Northern_alligator_lizard.jpg#/media/File:Northern_alligator_lizard.jpg
