Critter Corner: We have had many critters visit us, but this is a bit strange. We have a little black kitty that comes around all the time. We think it is a girl as she has two little collars on, one is pink and the other lavender. She is very pretty and seems like a sweet thing, but she hunts the birds and that is a NO! NO! here in our yard. We have left some dry cat food out for her but she never seems to get it and that attracts big raccoons that we don't want. We are happy to give little mama and little miss a few grapes and other little treats, but not enough to make a full meal so they don't become dependent on us for their food. And they understand that, or seem to. Anyway, this little girl does not seem to have a home. If she does do let me know. She is lovely but very skittish. Just give me a call (805) 343-0283 and let me know if you know this little lady.
