The Foxer

Rumpus, the youngest of the defoxing annexe cats, is a regular Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer. Every day as dusk approaches he scrambles onto the roof of the log store to await the evening bat exodus. Every morning Maxine arrives to find the front step littered with downed Pipistrelles. We've tried collar bells, security lights, and stern ultimatums but our one-cat Kammhuber Line just keeps on killing.

This cryptic collage has a hidden theme.
