In an odd curiosity thing, a few friends asked how the cat situation is going. So here is the update. After putting hot pepper flakes in the front garden, I am happy to announce that Cracky has not made an appearance on our doorstep. And the garden mulch has not been dug up. It’s possible Cracky is dead in some ditch but that is hard to know.
The cats in the back yard are still there. But I think we will have buy a whole canister of hot pepper flakes from BJ to spread around. We can only hope they stay away.
