Pfffft -- Our cats hardly chase anything on the place much anymore. All critters on our place live pretty much in harmony, it's kind of funny. We have squirrels, rabbits, groundhogs, buzzards, cats, even saw a snake the other day on the road out front of our place. DH said one day he looked out front and there were the cats, lounging around the "accidental pond" (low place in the front yard that catches water), and rabbits frisking nearby in the early morning sun, cats just LOOKING at them. He said it looked like a scene around an African watering hole with a pride of lions or something. The buzzards will come and sit by the accidental pond, too, and sit there for HOURS. The groundhogs are a bit more wary when we're outside, but they pay no mind to the cats, and they just munch away on the grass, clover, blackberry bushes, and kudzu. Squirrels skip through the trees without a care in the world. It's kinda neat.
