“Do you own a cat?” asked my next-door neighbor earlier tonight. He was exiting his house while I was tending to the watering I didn’t get to before work this morning.
“No,” I said.
“There’s one standing by the car,” he said. “I wondered if it was yours.”
I shook my head.
“Do you want a cat?” he asked. “Because now it’s walking toward your front yard.”
“I’m more of a dog person,” I said. “But maybe it would help chase away the rabbits.”
“I’ve seen a lot more of those than usual,” he said. “Have they been eating your plants?”
“They were for awhile,” I said. “Now I think things are too big for them. But they ate all the peas. I got no peas this year.”
“They like the green stuff,” he said. “That’s for sure.”
