When you're a Jet, you're a Jet all the way........

I don't even know where to start with this one, so I'm just going to jump right in.

See, the "flowerbeds" at the front of my house are pretty dense, full of just bushes and hostas and weeds that I need to go and deal with but don't because I suck and hate yardwork.  This also applies to our "natural area" in our front yard, which really doesn't look that bad.  The azaleas just need to be cut back a bit and there's a dogwood stuck in there randomly (hey, it was there when we moved in).

Anyhoo, my bushes seem to have attracted some pretty sketchy creatures.....all of our neighborhood outdoor cats.  I can come home after dark and see at least 5 or 6 of them scatter all at once out of those bushes at any time.  I've tried talking to them, petting them, but they are waaaayyyy too bad ass for that.

I just wonder what they're REALLY doing in there?  Having a secret meeting on how to take out the other kitty gang one street over?  Do I have the Jets or the Sharks meeting in my bushes?   Or do I have an Outsiders situation going on - are they Greasers or Socs?  Stay Gold, Ponyboy!!!!

Are there boy and girl kitties in there and is that their "make-out" spot?  (eww)  I really don't know. 

I kind of picture them like this.....





I did notice a couple weeks ago that I went out to my car and one of the kitties, a big one that is orange and white, was laying on his/her back....showing that belly and just relaxing like the laziest cat ever.
This cat did nothing when I came outside.  I spoke and he/she looked at me like, "What the hell do you want lady?"  and went right back to sunning that belly.  I think that cat might be the head of the gang.  I have decided he is Don Whiskers Corleone.

During this heat wave in the past week, I think they are laying low.  I haven't seen the kitties.  They must be staying indoors.  But, they'll be back.....they'll all be back.....

Oh my gosh this made me laugh. Now I've got that song in my head. "From your first cigarette to your last dying day". Wait...is that how it goes. I need to brush up on my show tunes.

Nice... This reminds me that I need to weed my front yard. And I actually enjoy it. Just not in record breaking heat. Lucky for me, we're having a severe drought at the moment, so most of the weeds are dying. Tho the grass is too. Actually, the weeds are a bit greener, making my yard look nicer. Okay. Nevermind. I can't weed... my yard would be nothing but dirt if I did.

I know what u mean Keaven. If I did weed, it would all be dirt so see I'm doing my flowerbeds...and my kitty gang a favor!

You're going to be sorry when the results of those "meetings" in the bushes appear. Kittehs everywhere! I'm afraid for you.

I know! My poor Granny dog won't stand a chance against all those kittehs!

I saw 2 kittehs leave the bushes this morning! I think they're coming back!!!
