Time for a cat story!
We gave him some pets and some treats. Then he took off across the field and stood by an overturned wheel barrow. Several times he ran up to us and raced back across the field and stood by the wheelbarrow, a pile of bricks, some overturned flower pots and old rusty farm machinery. Of course, we finally followed him. What we found was heartbreaking.
The owner, fearing prosecution, had chained her ten cats to cinder blocks and hid them in the field under all the junk. This orange cat was clearly disturbed by this and sought our help. When we had unchained them all and loaded them up in the van, we looked at each other in amazement! "Are there any more?" we asked the orange cat. He jumped in the van, his work done. Amazing!
