ACO,I agree with you,although my cats are in the backyard with us and believe it or not,they stay with us,are very obedient..
They are not even interested in what goes on beyond the fence and if we go inside so do they.
We are retired and LOVE to be outdoors.
As for my friend in Georgetown,they found the remnants of a cat and believed it to be their girl,but still hope..
I did not add insult to injury,buy telling them how wrong they were,first declawing and then letting the cat outside,I think they know:sad:unfortunatey it cost their poor little girl-kitty her life.
