Recently, I read a short story entitled "Three Skelton Key" by George G. Toudouze, and it got me thinking about our furry 'friends', that frequent the docks, and river banks in most big cities. Today's post will fall squarely and firmly into what we all call the rumor mill. When the condos, in the background at Chandler's Wharf, were constructed many years ago, I heard lots of stories, none of them ever confirmed by the early condo dwellers ... with those "dramatic ocean views", about an infestation of rats. I haven't heard much talk lately. As a matter of fact, in all my illustrious years of hanging around the Old Port, I've NEVER seen one single rat. However, I've seen endless wild, dock cats running about here and there. Here kitty, kitty!
