Brian, this critter has been coming around every other day, like he lives here, and I guess he did live here or at least close to here. Yesterday was just the first time I had a chance to get a shot. That's why I was in such a hurry. Anyway, the soundmuffs are now hooked on the end of the rifle barrel. To get the rifle, you have to take hold of the hearing protection.
It had gotten to the point that my little warrior cat, the toughest cat we have, wouldn't even go outside anymore.
