Caught the last of the wild cats living in our back yard. You may recall that the mother cat chased my dog around the yard one night, and so my husband flushed the cats out with the garden hose? Well, hey came back, and moved under the kids' playhouse. My husband borrowed a small animal trap, and lured a kitten out with some tuna, and took it out to farmer's field and let it go.

The mother was caught a few hours later, perhaps looking for her baby. She was taken (with much howling, hissing and growling) to another field and let go. The three remaining kittens disappeared for a couple of days, before showing up back in the original hole under the shed. I took them out some water, but didn't feed them--they were SO thirsty, the poor things. My husband set the trap again, and caught one within two minutes, and the remaining two in one shot about twenty minutes later. They were released together at a corporate park that has a little pond and lots of little bushes and trees in clusters where they can chase bugs and lizards and mice for food.

The reason (in case you are wondering) we didn't take them to the Humane Society is because they were feral cats, and therefore, unadoptable. We thought it preferable to let them go, than to have them put to sleep. Also, the shelters are so overrun, that most are not accepting new animals right now. Sad, but true.

Anyway, not much new has happened to me in the past few days. I took the kids to the zoo yesterday to play in the water playground there, and did some yardwork this morning. Tonight will be spent cleaning the turtle tank, which gets dirty a lot faster with a third turtle added to the mix. Still haven't taken pics, but will get around to it, soon.

If any of you are interested in reading the newest issue of the Fables comic (which I always recommend, because it's fabulous), drop me a comment here, and I will send you the links to the scans I made of it.

And, because I haven't had one for quite a while, I give you a LINK OF THE DAY! (Gasp!)

Wow.

WHAT A GREAT ISSUE! There was a lot going on in this one, and good plot advancement. Ambrose is still a tragic figure, and I loved the scene with him and Blue. I don't think that's a spoiler, since they are good friends, and talk pretty often.

Also, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Frau Totenkinder. I don't know if I'd trust her, but she is made of awesome!

If you aren't reading this title, I have to ask: WHY NOT?

That is all.
