    Sorry, but no thanks. I've got a cat now that's just asking for trouble. He roams all night and we've got beasties that roam also. So I look for him not to come home some day. Much as I love cats, it's getting hard to keep one. I can't keep Inky in the house, I've tried.

    Oh, by the way, a guy that lives just about a mile from me lost all but 6 of his laying hens (Leghorns) a couple of nights ago. I think he had about 50 layers. The critter tore into his run (chicken wire), then lunged against the door until it came loose. Most were just laying there dead - some had been dragged off. His coop was divided with lattice type material and he had younger pullets, not quite big enough to put in with the bigger ones. Whatever it was left them alone. He thought it was coyote - I think it's raccoon.

    He's been selling eggs at the Farmer's Market but I guess he'll not have any for awhile now. I felt especially bad for him because I was the one who had to inspect his farm, chickens, and his permits and certificates before he could sell them.
