Itchy, Scratchy, and Knuckles
I help Abandoned Pet Rescue, and now APR is helping me with a problem I have had lately, iguanas and rats. APR received a large number of feral cats that were about to be euthanized by Hendry County, and I was told I could take a couple of them. The best part about it is that I don't have to pay the adoption fee, and I can let them live out in my back yard. I picked the little furballs up today, and I am thinking of calling them Itchy and Scratchy. For the time being, they are living in a cage on my back porch, and I am hoping that I can make friends with them. After a while I will release them and I hope that they will spend their hours hunting rats and iguanas out in the wilds of my yard. If anyone has a better name for the two new members of the family, let me know, I will put the best names up on a poll and the winning names will be given to them. By the way, I don't even know if they are girls or boys. They were a little too irritated when I got them, for me to check.
Since I wrote this post the cats have been named and their sex determined. Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan have been living out in the back yard now for almost five years. The rat and iguana problem hasn't gone away, but it has been mitigated somewhat. What I find interesting is that Lindsay and Britney will sit on the side of the swimming pool and watch as raccoons and possums eat their cat food.
