Remember how I told you about all the outside cats in my neighborhood? There is one cat in particular whose favorite haunt is my front yard. I notice him the most because he looks exactly like Al. He's a big ol' black cat with a medium long coat. More than once, I've pulled up into the driveway and freaked out because Al is outside sitting on the front wall. Al is not allowed outside!! So I yell at him and then walk over to the wall to pick him up and take him back in the house where he belongs. And the black cat, who is not Al, will run away at my approach. Oops - mistaken identity. But, just to be sure, the first thing I do when I go inside is find my kitty.
Sadly, this scenario won't happen ever again. This weekend I saw the black cat, who is not Al, dead in the street in front of my house.
I am so sad for the beautiful black cat. Poor kitty.
Hey readers ... PLEASE keep your cats inside!!! Thanks.
