Post hoc, ergo propter hoc

The facts are these:

1). There was an enormous black stranger cat sitting on our windowsill at four o'clock this morning.

2). Reserve Cat has two narrow parallel grooves running across his nose where the fur is gone.

You be the judges.

Poor reserve cat! Defending her ground took great cat bravery!

Spousal unit swears he will put a box trap out if stranger cat returns.

I have suggested that leaving Funnyface in the back yard will be a much more effective deterrent.

Heh. Poor reserve cat. Cat politics sound more intense than people politics.

Once a strange cat attacked mine while he was on our front porch. I ended up with a big vet bill because mine got an infection. Hope yours is OK.

Thank you for those kind words, Rochelle.

We're keeping an eye on Reserve Cat's nose (and stranger cat did NOT come back last night, hurrah).
