    Edge of Melkbosstrand.
    I have it on good authority that cats are still disappearing in Atlantic Beach estate.

    Domestic cats kill a lot of birds and small wildlife, maybe this is just the wild animals retaliating.

    To save yourself a lot of trouble, don't scare it or throw a rubber snake at it, because it will crap all over your place as it makes for a exit. Man does that crap stink.

    Just spotted the little stokstertmeerkat now again, he seems to live in the storm water system using the opening next to our driveway.
