    We had indoor/ outdoor cats for years and only once has a stray came up to the house and been readily accepted. I think that it's just a question of getting the "house" cat used to the new one, and...

    To me the first flavor that came through in the sauce was the curry, then the maple and mustard. I really didn't think that I would like it as much as I did. :) In fact, I used some of the sauce on...
