[nafex] Actual Kitties

Hello Don,

I quite agree.  We simply keep cats around to keep the rodent population under control.  Your description of Tuffy reminds me of our cat, Jester, who
was a drop-off by some city folks who apparently were tired of having a cat.  She even had a collar and everything.  She turned out to a lean, mean
mousing machine, whose all time record bag total was six mice in one day, but normally ran two or three.

Regards,
Steve Dulaney
