Maj. Grey was sighted yesterday at 4 pm!!
He was probably coming in the yard or in yard
to eat, and then I scared him out not knowing
he was there (lots of hidey holes in my yard...)
I immediately got out the cat food can, tapped it
and opened it and called him. He ran out of the yard
to the gully (I was close enough to establish it
was him, but not close enough to inspect him)
He was indecisive about coming
back to the yard. He disappeared down the gully.
I put the food out for him - and then checked about 1.5 hrs
later when it was dark. Someone had come and eaten
the food - I am fairly sure it was him. YES!!
This am - no Grey Just the nasty cat going to the
gully (prob. to look for Grey and keep him "away").
I left food anyway.... seems Grey is switching to
eating only once at night. Because of this
I am doing the trapping based on weather and
trap availability... prob. this week if I can
manage or early next. Then I'm off on vacation
a few days. I REALLY want to get Grey fixed
and inside before I go away.
Send me vibes and prayers I can a) get the trap
(need to borrow and the person is slow about
getting traps to people) b) don't know how to do
and c) good trapping weather!!!
I'm telling the neighbors today that trapping
will be taking place in the next couple of weeks
so to keep cats in during dark hours....
(and that may encourage the owner of nasty
cat - IF she is the owner that is - to
keep her cat inside!!)
