Azure’s Wild Kingdom
Not a surprise to anyone that knows me that I have cats. Two of my cats (Sweetie and Homeboy) are outside pets, but I do confine them to the garage at night and when the weather is bad. We finally had a sunny day after weeks of rain, so the cats got to go out for a while. Homeboy imediatly found the fat jay that’s been stealing kibble out of the food dishes and chased him into the garage. The following is the crazy that went on after that.
