    She might wonder what a woman who answers the door with an axe in her hand might be putting into her "jam."

    I was telling a co-worker the tale and he was cracking up and said, "When the cat ran out you should have really freaked her out by running after it with the axe and yelling, 'My dinner!'"

    Just a joke!! No housepets were harmed in this incident!

    Maybe she has a dog that she wanted to let out and didn't want it to tangle with the axe-lady's cat. :lol: Either way she'll think twice about complaining anymore. A set of potholders or a couple of nice kitchen towels would be a safe small "let's start over" gift too. No poison waiting to be spread on the morning toast.

    This is just too funny.

    LOL, that is similar to what happened to me a couple weeks ago. I was woke up from someone banging on my front door at 1 am. I (naturally) go to the door with a gun in my hand. It was the cops! Seems my neighbor saw people in my backyard with flashlights. She called me but I have the phone ringer turned off so didn't hear it. Supposedly they were a church group trying to get down to the river... At 1 in the morning??? Besides that, you can't hardly get down the river bank in the daylight, much less after dark. Not to mention it is full of cottonmouth's. Moral of this story is...so much for watch dogs. I have a doberman, german shepard and an Australion Shepard and they all slept thru it until the police knocked on the door!
