Specky - the other neighbor's cat. The "he" that "trespasseth" is none other than Mr. Rooster Dude! Yes, Troy found him "loose" and strutting by our tree. Unfortunately he saw Specky first as she was slinking across the street. He was shooing her away before he saw the rooster. Bummer!!!!!
That could have been a sight to see. I think that even I would have run outside in my pj's just so I could be a spectator at the Rooster Rodeo
In the end, she did not get the rooster. . . Sigh. . . That rooster is so annoying.
