Sometimes, it was quite a challenge to round them up to be able to open the
door to the public on time. Picture this.. 50+ year old man laying down on
floor uttering kitten-isms trying to convince 5 rogue felines to come to me
from anywhere in a 1100 sq ft floor space full of shelving and plenty places to
hide. It was a game. Eventually they realized the "rewards" of being caught:
a belly rub, a decent massage and a savory treat.
