The last time we talked with singer Robert Earl Keen, it was 2009 in Austin, Texas, and Keen told us a story about how he woke up one day to find his wife standing in the doorway shooting at cats with a deer rifle. "I got out my guitar and wrote a song," he said.

Listeners wrote in and scolded Keen (and his wife and this show) for making light of harm to the poor kitties. So we've decided to ask Keen three questions about the more terrifying side of cats.
