Side Effect of Kitten Season

We're definitely in kitten season now. I stepped into my backyard this morning for Mac to potty, and there was a cardboard box sitting there. Normal people might not think anything of a cardboard box, but people dealing with kitten season know that boxes, laundry baskets, beer cartons, milk crates, even plastic bags have a second purpose: containing litters of kittens. I groaned and approached the box with trepidation: it wasn't even 7am. Further, a box of kittens in my backyard means that someone in the neighborhood had figured out where I work, and that my house serves as night drop. NOT good.

Fortunately, my upstairs neighbor had filled the box with clippings from the yard. No kittens. At least till closer to 9am.
