Cat in the Hutch: Modified tom thinks he's laying hen

2012-12-19 - Greater Gadberry - Photo by Charles Marshburn.
Cat in the Hutch! Is this the same cat (white patch, second laying box, with head turned toward the other lady no longer in waiting) that kept the mini donkeys under control with their lead rope this summer? Now he thinks laying an egg is no big deal for him! He hasn't been the same since Dr. Coffey changed his personality and his goals in life with that simple, awful procedure that we think is so necessary to control feline population. So far, no egg, but don't put it past him. We try our best to humor him. - Charles Marshburn, December 19, 2012
