Q: But cats have been known to drop five stories or more and live. A: Yeah, but it can still get hurt. I’ve seen a squirrel jump a hundred feet or more and live. They can fly a little bit, believe it or Spring/Summer of 2022 and understand their impact on the reservation.

I had to climb next to it and it didn’t want me there, so I climbed above it and I was probably there for three hours trying to get it. I just rappelled down really fast. I grabbed it and it bit me, and I just held it by its face, and I came down as fast as I could to let it go. That was a cat that nobody owned. It attacked me pretty good and ripped my glove to shreds. Q: A feral cat? A: Yeah. And they can do some ASKS | SEE PAGE 18
