Something very strange is going on here. I went to talk with my neighbour whose field runs with mine, to discuss the fencing before my ponies arrive, and he wondered why I hadn't removed 'my' dead cat from the field, as he had heard I had lost one. Anyway it turned out there is a third cat, a black and white, dead in the hamlet in the last two weeks, and its body is lying in tall grass on the edge of my field. These neighbours have been here for 10 years and they have never heard of anything like this, even though they say that everyone has always put down rodent poison and there have always been ferals around. They think something else is going on, though no one has seen any strangers around. It is a horrible nightmare, and until it is solved, my four survivors are staying strictly indoors. I haven't seen my barn kittens for at least a week, and I only hope nothing has happened to them.
