A good thing one of the cats didn't take the intruder out. Good thinking about asking the girls mom or your wife might be visiting you downtown.

Oh, my GAWWWWWWD, Scott! For a moment there I was starting to wonder, what the? And thank the heavens you haven't any attack cats, you would've been in a fine ol' mess. Still, your attempt at comedy is quite credible, you might have a future there.

Since reading of your misadventures a few hours ago I haven't been able to shake the image of your cats hissing at squirrels out of my mind. What type of cats do you have over there Scott? Our cats are tough here in Australia. They may hiss and spit, but thay also attack, anything that moves. Yeah we breed real tough attack cats here, coz how else are we to survive the native animals.

@Bob: That's must be one of the most hilarious out-of-context replies I've ever read.
@Scott: Nice story, brought a smile to my face. Smart thinking by involving the kid's mom.

Well, now who hasn't had that sickened feeling in the pit of their stomachs when the realization hits them that DAMMIT! Gone and locked myself out of the #*!$ house AGAIN!! Now, understand that I live in a big house with my husband, 2 kids, my Dad and my Mother-in Law (who I shall refer to as 'Rosmary'). Too many opportunities for someone to get locked out. So I got the bright idea of obtaining a ceramic keykeeper, which looks like your basic garden ornament (mine is a dog)to keep near the back door. Underneath the keykeeper is a "secret compartment" where the housekey is kept. Brilliant! I bought this 2 years ago and haven't locked myself out yet! So the other day Rosmary is out walking Lindy, her puckered-up 13 year old Chihuahua (who barks constantly at everything, craps on my floor and who I'm plotting to euthanize at the earliest possible opportunity). But I digress! Well, Rosmary sees that the keykeeper has been knocked over and decides to walk through the lavarock and set it upright. All well and good except that Rosmary is 75 years old and can't walk straight on flat surfaces, let alone rocky ones!! As one may expect, she took a header and gashed her head open (shame she didn't fall on the dog!). I'm thinking now of getting rid of the keykeeper and just checking to make sure I always have my keys with me when I leave the house. It's too dangerous for the old folks to get to if they needed to. Maybe I'll send it to you, you sound like you might need it more than I do.

Countless homes have been not only been "broken-into" but completely stolen simply by a bank takeing or Repossing via Mortgage. No broken glass! Too easy!

keykeepers are a bad idea anywhere you have a key lying around your property unsecured is a risk. best off creating a routine of always picking up your keys and putting them down in the same place that way your mind will be trained into you always having your keys and checking before you leave the house, trust me if you do it often enough it'll become automatic and you wont even know your doing it.
