I really enjoyed this film. It's very well written and has some of my favorite character actors (James Cromwell, Scott Glenn, John Malkovich.) Diane Lane really should be nominated for a Oscar. Loved how the horses were filmed. So much power and grace. Anyway, I just wanted to rec the film.

So...kitten issues. There is a Siamese kitten hanging about for the past week. Probably about 4 to 5 months old. He/She is small enough that the male cats Buddy and Brindle just sniff its nose like, "Really? Aren't you a little young to be all alone?" It's very skittish. I've been putting out canned food, which it woofs down. Wed night, Abby was at the screen door and the kitten was rubbing up and down in front of her with lots of kitten squeaks. Tonight, I left the door open and kitten came in (and out and in and out). It climbed up on the couch where Buddy was and just kept butting its head against his tummy; Buddy left because it was just too needy. Then the kitten kept approaching Abby. She kept growling at it but let it get within a few inches. When it got closer than that, she left. Then, the big mistake. The kitten walked on her pillow. She jumped off the couch and went towards the door. The kitten followed and she jumped on it and there was much screaming. When I arrived the kitten was on it's back, showing it's tummy in complete submission. Abby stopped and the kitten fled into the night. :::sigh:::

I called for Buddy to come back in a few hours later and I could hear the kitten squeaking in the bushes. It's so lonely and wants to be adpoted by a kitty family. I'm hoping I can try again tomorrow and perhaps trap it in the house. It would be a fourth cat, but the three current ones are only needy when they are in the mood. The tough part is getting the my furry companions to accept it, and that is 2/3s done. It's too bad Abby is territorial and doesn't give a flying crap how young the new one is. One the other hand...she was defending her home which means we are her home. She is really coming along. :)

Speaking of which, we now let her out every day during the day. When Buddy goes out, she comes running, "wait for me! Wait for me!" and usually bounces out the door ahead of him. But she wants to come back in within a 1-3 hours. She comes running if we call (particularly Mom--she's bonding very well with Mom.) We still can't pick her up, she she come regularly to us to be petted and adored.

Lastly, just getting caught up on tv. Am watching NCIS and just saw Tony dressed as Travolta. My, my, my but those white pants sure showed off his package.
