I have 8 of these little guys that live in my neighborhood, their matriarch was killed a few weeks ago. I talk to them when I can, tell them to get out of the recycling bins because there is no food, or to get out of the road.
They mostly just stare at me and make little scratchy noises.
I'd like to think I'm helping them.
Really I think they're just looking for a ford to finish the job.
