Re: 50 uses for feral cats!

Heard a story in Key West years ago about one of the local waterfront vagrants citizen. Who started using kittens as bait for fishing. Every time he'd walk down Duval street the other residents would go "meow" behind him. -

Though IMO the story has some poetic justice from the fishes perspective. Baitcat?

Re: 50 uses for feral cats!

Can't think of funny name for it, but they make great fenders. For my boat the the tail length once a clove hitch has been tied is about perfect.
