    I pulled in the driveway about 5:00 and saw a big (at least 14 lbs.) tom cat on the edge of my garden. He jumped about 5 ft. into the low branches of a small tree and snatched out a SQUIRREL! It was so big he couldn't run with it so he sort of lumbered to the back of the yard. No wonder my old girls have been spending so much time in the house.

    Are your cats worried about the 15 pound tomcat or the beefy squirrel?

    My son says we should guard our littlest more carefully. She is 12 years old and only 4 lbs. She isn't one of the regular indoor/ outdoor cats but she does dart out the door sometimes. Her nickname has always been "squirrel." lol
