Austin Doyle | Forth Worth, Texas

There are three houses for sale on my street. My neighbors keep to themselves here in this lower middle class neighborhood, hardly anyone speaks to each other. I suppose they're more suspicious because they're not the types to have fancy alarm systems. There are many dogs kept in backyards and they bark at each other day and night. I have three cats, one with only three legs, and I feel surrounded. We're technically in the suburbs, right inside the loop around town. There's a swale that runs behind my backyard and sometimes dogs get loose in there and I have to chase them. I'm scared they'll jump the fence and attack the cats, which has happened. This is my cat Uzi in my front yard.
