Hairy Dog, RIP Caesar, Katana, Kip, Capri
What makes you so sure the cats were forgotten, and hadn't just meowed at the spaceship hatches so long that the aliens let them out and told them it served them right if they were left behind?I also got a chuckle about the fact that a good many people believe that we were visited long ago by aliens (not cats though, or maybe they brought the cats with them and forgot to take them back when they left) because of things like that, which show up not just in Revelations but in miscellaneous sections of the bible.
My son made the mistake of taking Trip out on a leash mid summer, and Trip hasn't let us forget (every. single. day) that a cat's natural habitat is outside. Which with our coyotes is a non-starter.
