You know you live in rural Texas...

when there's a huge bloodstain in the garage from where your roommate just blew away a gigantic, cat-food-stealing possum with his shotgun.

And nobody even batted an eye, right? :-)

Nope. I hear gunshots all the time around here, but NO sirens. Go figure.

SCI-FI said...

Wow. Up here, we'd have him arrested for unlawful discharge, disturbing the peace, and cruelty to animals -- and he'd stay in jail until the CSI-boys typed the blood to make sure it wasn't human...

Christina LMT said...

LOL! You obviously need to make your escape, SCI-FI!

Hah!

You make a good point for moving there...

I caught the same one five times in the live trap in the back yard.

Even after the last time, he was still too stupid to get out of the open end on his own.

He's still around. I see him about once a week.

Regards,
Rabbit.

That's gross! I'd hate to kill animals, unless if they were trying to kill me or my pets. Or if they were bugs.

Christina LMT said...

Wing, see?!

Rabbit, they are not the brightest of critters, are they?

Tally, what can I say? The possum WAS a potential threat to the outside kitties, and what if Harley and Tucker had gone after it? It could have done serious damage to them! And, you still eat meat, right?
