At 6 am this morning, he ambushed me at the door as I was coming in from walking Suze.
Crawling along the wet ground on the dark driveway, I hunted for the little guy so he was there when Frankie woke up. He finally came running in and the day went on. Late, but uneventful otherwise. We're currently trying to figure out security measures to keep him an indoor cat and protect the birds.
