"Terra Catta Pot" kitty was not happy that I had activated the Kitten Defense System and it can no longer sleep in the planter! It decided to show me its displeasure by knocking down one of the smaller pots and dislodging the paperwhites bulb that was planted in it! Fortunately, the hydrangea cutting that M gave me, which had also been stuck in that pot, didn't fall out! I replanted the bulb and cleaned up the mess! The small pot is now firmly wedged against two other, bigger, pots!
Later in the evening, I turned on the sprinklers at the back of the back garden (I've two sets of sprinklers in the back yard - one for the back half and one for the front half) and I saw a small ball of fur start up from where the sweet potato vine is growing and dart off to hide behind the garden shed! Oops! I guess kitty was sleeping in the sweet potato vine! But, it was not harmed. This morning, I watched it playing with its mother in the middle of the back garden, pouncing on her and practicing catching its "prey".
In the meantime, M sent me a picture of the pea seedlings that were picked clean by birds (he suspects the mockingbirds, but, I know that mourning doves like pea seedlings, too, because they ate all of mine, one year!):
He said he had to replant a second set of seedlings and he made individual cages for them with wire mesh:
