The dead cat turned out to belong to the Jesus Saves neighbors, who never seem to stop amazing us with their inability to behave like they are aware of what other people think of them. I guess if you think Jesus loves you, it's okay not to give a damn what other people might think. Needless to say, their cat was not neutered, which no doubt contributed to his demise.
Our experience with this family began shortly after we moved to the neighborhood, and they brought home the Jesus Saves school bus, which looked as though it had been vandalized, and parked it in their front yard. They have about fourteen kids, which they "home school," meaning in reality they spend their day "learning" how to play in the street and jump on their trampoline. They routinely enter our next door neighbor's garage and take their kid's toys, and they take things from our yard from time to time, though I've moved our kids' toys inside to keep them away from the little thieves. Someone put signs up in the neighborhood to wish the mother a happy birthday, and unlike most people who would remove the signs after the birthday, they left them to become trash blowing about the neighborhood.
I suppose I'm a bit put out recently about people who seem to observe no boundaries with regard to their intrusion on others. Don't come selling crazy here. We're all stocked up.
