Lily Lights the Cat Trap

Lily Lights the Cat Trap

Lily had a few guys doing something in her yard the other day. I now note that there are two bright little incandescent bulbs, one on the back porch and one in the back of the yard, adjascent to the cat trap. This on top of the street light the city installed on the border of our yards after someone torched the other neighbor’s milk barn.

The street light dims periodically for energy saving, so I guess that was just too scary.

So Jess has her own personal Dachshunds and heated doghouses, and Lily has her own personal illuminated cat trap. Who’s having more fun?

She’s lucky I’m not a truly evil neighbor, or I’d acquire a stuffed toy cat, dress in black, charcoal my face, sneak over the fence and insert it in the trap.

Or maybe I could put up a sign where she can see it, reading “Lily, cat traps work better in the dark. Just trying to help.”

Or maybe I could build a deck by the low fence, buy my other cat Charlotte a harness and leash, and we could just hang there on lawn chairs and contemplate the cat trap, like some kind of feline shrine. It’s kind of Zen, since she hasn’t caught a cat since Jess a week back. One trap clapping.

And webcam it. Hey, this could go viral.
