Now that you've mentioned it: my mother and I know a guy in Frisco who happens to live in a skunk free-area ... or so they thought they did. I saw a little rascal prancing his way from open sight between the bushes and a house. "I think I just saw something black with a white stripe on its back running away from open sight." "You serious? ... S%^t."

Let's see; we get squirrels, rats, mice, skunks, raccoons, snakes, stray cats, birds, crickets, paper wasps, huge red & orange garden spiders, and the rare opossum.   I don't see many salamanders or silverfish like I used to.   We have had several big paper wasp (yellowjackets) nests attached to our house and one unfortunate bumblebee nest inside the walls (an ugly business), as well as a 'coon living under the house that we had humanely caught and released.

I don't know how the crime is back in the Frisco/Sausalito area, but it appears that skunks and other mess-ups are a serious problem next to crime.

You sure have, but one extra time wouldn't hurt.

... Now, now, be nice to the cat.

My little lady caught a bird and a mouse ... and she won't even play with them!

TJ's the opposite; he plays for an hour or two and then sometimes eats it but sometimes just leaves it there for me to throw away

^ Well, let's just say. Teo's cats are of the sumo class 'cause they are both pregnant.

That's a danger, the favourite lying place of all our cats was clean laundry, you had to really pay attention because in a blink of an eye they were already lying on it, and of course full of their hair again Shocked
