Brisa is still happily with us, although some days we wonder if she was the best decision. Her constant amusement with human food, which often gets in the way of our cooking and eating can be quite frustrating. She also enjoys killing rats and birds (we are okay with the first, not with the second) and often enjoys bringing them into the home to show us. On a couple of different occasions her trophies have been brought to our bed.
And if all of this isn’t bad enough, yesterday our little neighbor girl, Zayda, showed up at our door after school while we were gardening and shared that she needed to talk to us. We stopped what we were doing and gave her our attention, when she went onto tell us that our cat had entered their home last weekend on two different occasions and killed their baby chickens. She was gracious with us, but we were so embarrassed and are unsure of what we can do to change this. Later in the day we brought over some chocolate cake to say sorry and we are headed to the market today to buy more chickens for the family, but we are afraid that it will happen again.
We love our cuddly kitty, but we don’t want to make any enemies in the neighborhood. So for any of you cat owners and experts out there, send us some advice.
