Garden Patrol

This is Jasper cat. 
At night we call the cats in and close them up in the barn to keep them safe from the scary creatures of the dark.  Sometimes one of the cats doesn't come and, so, gets left out at night only to be waiting hungrily at the barn door in the morning.  I'm pretty sure they're capable of taking care of themselves at night, but we like to be sure.  Anyway, lately it's been Jasper that hasn't come when called, or she comes late running from somewhere in front of the house.

I finally figured out where she's been hanging out.  I went out to the garden around dusk the other night and she was there stalking a Mockingbird that was a little too interested in the tomatoes on the vines.  She kept after it until it flew away. 

This evening, she was there again.  So I guess this is her favorite hang out for now and an added bonus for us that she's keeping the critters out of the garden.

You go girl.
