“OK…I’m not even sure how to describe what’s going on here.
We have a lot of feral cats in our corner of Petworth. So I’m used to digging up cat poop in our garden. (Not enough ground cover, too much mulch for the cats to resist.) But three days ago something new turned up: A king-sized doodie! There is no way this came from a cat. It was too large and there was no attempt to bury it. So I dutifully scooped up this uber-turd and got rid of it, and the next day…another. And then…another, on the third day!
Now our back gate is not locked–doesn’t even have one, but up until now, we’ve never seen anyone try to get into our garden, and our neighbors are very vigilant. So this had to have happened overnight. I thought perhaps someone was letting their dog into our backyard to do their business, but the Frogette took one look at this and said, “That’s a person. EEEWWWWW!” (You might ask how we know this, but if you’ve lived in San Francisco for any length time, you’d get it.)
So my question for the forum? Has this happened to anyone else? Ever heard of anything like this? Besides putting a lock and chain on our gate…anything else we can/should do?
Any suggestions are appreciated.”
