The Neighborhood Vigilante

Thomas, our favorite furry friend, spends countless hours patiently staring into gopher holes and crouching motionless near the bird bath. He catches something almost every day, mostly field mice, but his favorite treat is catnip. There's a terra cotta planter of it growing for him on the patio and he helps himself regularly. He rolls on it, licks it, rubs it on his face and eventually eats the whole piece, stems and all. The other neighborhood cats have staked out some limited territory and graze on the catnip, as well, but amongst this loose posse of feline vigilantes, Thomas is top dog.
