This morning I was greeted at the front door with a dead opossum. I
suspect the opossum and my cat got into a little altercation. The
opossum was small, that's how my cat managed to kill it. My cat is
around 5 years old, never fights with or bites/claws people, and is a
real sweetheart, unless you are a rodent or bird. He also lives to go
outside, he has an amazing array of tricks he will use to get his way if
I try to keep him inside.
I have some questions:
1) Is is possible to do anything to prevent my cat from attacking small
animals (other than keeping it inside, which is not an option)?
2) There's a fair amount of *** outside, what is the best way to clean
it, both off the floor and off of my cat (which I suspect is dirty from
it, although I haven't seen him yet today, for all I know that might be
the least of my worries with him).
3) My cat gets his rabies shots every year or so, but he's about due
right now. Anything else I should worry about?
Thanks for any advice or help.

Change the "nospam" to "communities" if you want to send mail directly
