I understand, truly I understand. The bloody dogs were out tonight.
Luckily the lights in Gary's office were out and I stuck to the shadows.
No cat spotted but there is some fresh food and water to be had.

The fox terriers can't get to it. I haven't seen any
roaming packs, if I did I would stop feeding.

I'll bet it's the kitties eating it, after the dogs have fallen asleep on guard duty. Kitties are pretty good at doing that.

Actually the kitties ignore the dogs since they in another yard and
behind a fence. Saw a black cat last night lazing on a stone
spigot cover. Did move as I walked past.

Did that black cat move much when you came by or just a little, like it was used to seeing you?

At least you do know there are kitties around who need that food and water, and are helping themselves to it. Wish those dogs would just hush up when you're out there!

They fall on the ground and crunch under foot. Along with
twigs and small branches.

do the squirrels get them? if not..pick those suckers up and make a pie!
here we have english walnuts...they hit the garage roof and it sounds like friendly fire! and they fall on the driveway and become walking hazards!

Jeane, between the tree and Ole feeding them they are
so fat that if any of the cats started to hunt them they
couldn't run. Actually we pick them up and shell them.
Come in handy for all sorts of things.

If you're stepping on them and they crunch, betraying your sneaking out to feed the kitties, try shuffling your feet instead. That will push them out of your way without stepping on them. Or...........sneak the food and water in bags in a big pocket, go out and pick up pecans, sneak the food and water into the bowls, and continue to pick up pecans. If anybody asks what you're doing, just truthfully tell them you're picking up the pecans. Twisted Evil

didn't know you were going out that late! but i can relate....when i have something i can't eat and don't want to throw away (like the big slice of tomato (i've told them not to waste their tomatoes on me! i don't mind tomato,i just don't like to eat slices...rather have 'em in salsa or something;) ) and the nasty 'meatballs' i got the other night) i have to wait until its dark.creep up the stairs from here outside and make sure there's nobody coming in a car nor in the kitchen...then i just stand at the top of the steps and toss into the weeds.
with me its not the crunch of pecans to give me away but the possibly slipping and clunking down the cement steps!).

Just got back from putting out food and
water. Spooked a black cat with either a pink or
red collar on. I've seen this cat before used to hit
the catnip plant with a vengence.

If you're slipping on the pecans just use shuffle your feet quietly instead. That way your feet aren't off the ground high enough to step ON the pecans. Or sweep them out of the way with a toe before stepping down. Can't have you falling down the steps and breaking something, what would Boo do with you if you broke a leg or arm?
