New Backyard Kitty

After the sudden and inexplicable disappearance of the cat population in our backyard a few months ago, we were plagued with some rather noisy birds moving in and some mice migrating over from Rudy's house next door as they moved out. Finally, a little feral angel has come to our yard to set things right. She's a pretty little calico that wants nothing to do with people and everything to do with the local mouse and bird population.

So, the back yard ecosystem is starting to balance out again. The birds are still eating the roaches that are fool enough to hang out in the daylight, but the birds are staying higher in the trees now and the loudest ones have become lunch. The mice are all but gone. And there's a lithe little lady cat keeping everyone in line. And Pixel is fascinated every time he sees her through the screen door. Ah, the circle of life.
