We've a number of outdoor cats in the neighborhood. Some of them are 
friendly, but I'm afraid to pet them lest I bring FeLV inside to my own 
cat. I will chase 'em out of the street - doing my part to keep 'em from 
getting run over.

The names were a bit of wit. Half anyway.

Back when I got them, there were two people who frequently appeared on 
NPR's All Things Considered; a retired school teacher from Georgia named 
Bailey White and Baxter Black "the Cowboy Poet and large animal 

If I'd really been clever, I'd have named the white one Baxter and the 
black one Bailey and made it a double pun or something.
