This could be a WTF or a "what pissed you off". Our next door neighbor seems to be a bodge job fanatic. He has electric leads coming out from the house, we think, going over a slatted wooden patio cover and ending up gkw. Now he is putting up some sort of home made scaffold on top of this patio cover. He seems to saw (electric) a lot in the house. I'm just waiting for either the house to go on fire or the walls to cave in and the roof land on top of the lot. Not to mention the amount of junk and trash bags they have outside that never seem to get put out for the trash collectors.

Do you breed people particularly dumb over there? I admin for a lost and found animals page In Queensland Australia. We have a post up about a missing cat. Some woman posted a picture of her with a cat asking if this was the missing one because the one she has has been hanging around her home for the past few days. We asked her whereabouts she was. She replied naming a town in Virginia.

Then it is time to call in the city's inspectors to inspect the property. The bags of trash could be a health hazard and the electric leads a fire risk. Also inform the fire department.

Perhaps she thinks the kitty was a new immigrant.

I think they just breed themselves. Bit like rabbits, if you let a couple out , you get hundreds of brother and sister rabbits. I'm sure you know about that problem in Australia.

Mebbe it was a victim of 'pussy grab and run'.

I know that you live on the fringes of civilization, but I didn't realize things were that tribal out there.

Is there any sort of trial, or are executions just decided summarily?
