They say that Santa said ... This is Florida !?? Bah humbug !! and he left as quickly as he could.
I might have totally freaked out the little "lost/homeless" kitten last night but I put old towels into the dog crate that stays out on the lanai ... it is huge, has towels and blankets for the pleasure of a cat nap and carries 3 cats or a full grown Standard Poodle comfortably on a long distance drive.
The little cat went inside and had a Christmas Eve dinner that was eaten in record time then it banged on the crate door and said, OK, thank you, let me out now.
I waited , hoping the little thing would appreciate the warm towels and a full belly but no, it got agitated and banged harder on the crate so I let it out again.
If I could get my hands on the owners of this little cat, they would spend the rest of this winter, barely fed, sleeping in a crate with a towel for warmth ..
If it weren't for my cats ... I would have brought the little thing inside,with the crate ..
I am not quite that loony though so when it didn't work out on the lanai, I shed a few tears, apologized and let it go.
By the way , she is a little grey tiger and feels like silk when you touch her, she is spooky about everything (who wouldn't be ??) but purrs like crazy when you pet her.
I think a soft loving touch is something she is not used to ..
So she is out there in those woods or hopefully at her home down the street ..
but that was our New Years Day ..
I didn't even see fireworks ! What the **** ??
