For several weeks now, we have had a little mystery brewing out here. The stray cat who adopted us, Little Kitty, lives in our garage. I have a block of wood under the garage door that leaves enough of a gap that she can squeeze in and out while keeping the door closed enough that the dogs or a coyote walking by wouldn't be able to get in.
Naturally, I was concerned about what might else be able to get in, but as we have seen, Kitty has done a great job at keeping the field mouse population down, and ditto for any little lizards or small birds that come within her reach.
Between the aforementioned snacks of prey, we keep her fed with your standard variety of cat food. She is not fat by any means, yet, she goes through a lot of food. This got us to wondering if she was sharing her food with others. Bring in the deer camera and let the mystery be solved!
Little Kitty has plenty of little hiding spots in the garage, so I'm not all that concerned that the raccoon would try to get her, but I'm not so sure I want to be feeding the entire raccoon population of Natalia. We may have to rethink our lodging situation.
