Bart Gray: 7 of 9
EDIT: Ok, a little background information is needed. This is our Tom, our Hunter-Extraordinaire, able to take down large squirrels and rabbits with ease. This also happens to be the same cat who, last month, we thought had been tragically killed in a roadside accident, only to find out that it was NOT our Bart, but the neighbors barn cat. On Friday, Bryan came in the house and said that Jeff needed me outside to doctor one of the cats. I went out thinking that I would see chewed ears and scratched eyes, but to my horror I found Bart with a 3-4 inch HOLE chewed in his side. We're talking visible insides here, folks. I immediately told Jeff he needed to get him to the vet. It would seem that some animal, we're thinking coyote (s), must have held him down and nawed on him. This is really something for us, given that Bart is a very strong kitty. Whatever it was must have been big, and didn't win. So, Bart spent the weekend at our neighborhood vet, getting all stitched up and vaccinated. He seems none-the-less for wear! Welcome home, Bart!
