My cat and I became a sort of team, without my realizing what would be; a buddy to all creatures once my theme... I soon became the backyard enemy. I fed the dog and cat upon my wake, threw bread outside to all the lovely birds; the cat went out for good old nature's sake... my coffee brewed, I sat to write some words. My dog stared up at me with weary eyes, a look which said, "You humans have no clue." I couldn't figure out his frantic sighs... completely ignorant of what cats do. Two of those birds were killed by my own cat... she left them on the "Welcome All Friends" mat.
