B)If the large feral tabby is nearby, Vasily’s cat will not enjoy going outside.,....see the Fact 1......" My cat enjoys going outside if it is not raining and if the large feral tabby cat that lives in the alley is nowhere nearby".[/color]

the fact may not be true in reverse also...........ie if my cat enjoys going outside when the large tabby is not around....that does not mean....If the large feral tabby is nearby, Vasily’s cat will not enjoy going outside. in any case------The vasily's cat enjoys going outside if it is not raining...........so what if the large tabby is there............




kudos if you please.
