Happy Birthday Ichiro
Ichiro is now a very big cat with lots of opinions and viewpoints. By and large, his humans have adapted and made themselves available to serve his needs. The one sticking point currently is Ichiro's wish to ramble around the neighborhood in the Seward Park neighborhood where coyotes also have their own needs to be met, aka eating up housecats.
Even in Plainfield, we must be on the alert for such conflicting agendas. Coyotes have been sighted in the Queen City for about two years or more.
So if you have a beloved pussycat, please keep him/her inside so that the issue of urban predators may not affect your family pet.
And meanwhile, sing Happy Birthday to Ichiro.
