watch out!

I let Bailey out of the house last night and although I worry each time she leaves my site, I was quickly relieved to see her come back (if only for a brief moment). Later, however, I was awakened from my slumber by the sounds of growling and other unpleasant Bailey noises. It turns out she has attracted the attention of a neighbor cat. Is this a male caller, looking for love? A misunderstood creatin, hopefully for a friend? Or a trouble-maker, trying to run Bailey out of town? In any case, the cat was squirted with some water by my trusty bottle. Now I have to actively manage the window, instead of just leaving it open all the time. So Bailey will likely be stuck in the house during the day (provided she comes home before I wake) and free to roam at night.
