A town full of farmers, and yet the city government is completely stymied by a clowder of feral cats.

Here is my modest proposal: We have a building infested with cats. We have a pair of wolf-dog hybrids that need exercise. I believe the term is "win-win-win"

You should have titled the thread "Saving the Cathouse".


Seriously, I have yet to figure out what the plan for this building is once it is "saved". Has anyone considered noise/vibration factor of all the trains going by if you turn it into a community center or restaurant. I question the practicality here a little.

Now if you would consider my master train transportation plan that would reroute the rail corridor around and simultaneously create a ACOE approved dike to keep your flood insurance cost down, restoring the BNSF depot would make more sense. (yup, that was a run-on sentence. ) There wouldn't be any trains going by the place.

au contraire

I just saw a documentary on the acient sport of Falconry. The feral cats would be good prey. What was most interesting to me was the semi-religious ritual the falaconers used to end the day's hunt. In this case the rabbits were all layed out in a pattern and prayers, etc. were used. Very interesting.

Richard, there is a restaurant right next door. And, believe it or not, sound and vibration were taken into account when it was designed and built.

What it could be we don't know. We just know it could be the center of economic revival in that part of town. Or another empty lot. It will be one or the other.

I thought it was going to be a Chinese restaurant joke. Lame.

To be sung to the tune of The Cat's In The Cradle

The cat's in the kettle at the Peking Moon
A little chinese place where I eat at noon.
They tell you that it's beef or chicken or pork
But it's Garfield on your fork, yeah

Is the floor made of stone?

I guess there are more appropriate threads for that question.

Ha...good luck.

Get into a catfight with a feral holding a six-shooter, you're still 3 bullets short, and that's with not one miss.

Me-ow.
