"Traditionally, the families of traitors were punished along with the traitors themselves, to act as a deterrent to committing treason or participating in treasonous acts with family members. In addition to being sentenced to death, all of the traitor's property would be confiscated, and his or her family members might be forced to forfeit property as well in punishment. Traitors could not will property to other family members, and individuals related to someone who had committed treason faced serious social stigma. Many family members fled to other countries with what wealth they could salvage.

Often, the death penalty for treason was also particularly macabre; traitors were rarely simply hung. Someone who committed treason could anticipate being drawn and quartered or tarred and feathered, and gibbeted as an object lesson. Gibbeting refers to the public display of a criminal, alive or dead, usually with a sign detailing his or her crimes. Gibbets were hung along roadways and at the entries to towns, so that travelers would constantly be reminded of the punishments in store for crimes like treason, murder, and robbery. Many gibbets were left until the body had decayed entirely, and the family of the criminal was not permitted to bury the deceased in holy ground.

In the modern era, most nations punish the traitor alone, with a sentence of death for serious acts of treason in nations with the death penalty. Lesser acts merit a jail sentence, usually for a minimum of five years, and a heavy fine: in the United States, the fine is $10,000 US Dollars. In nations without the death penalty, traitors are usually punished with life imprisonment; these nations include Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, England, and Australia....."

Agreed, but I prefer beheading or drawn and quartered.

Pine Tree cat had kittens on Tuesday. I don't know where the kittens are, most likely in the old stable, but she comes and eats well and has even come TO me rather than wait until the food is placed on the ground between us. Any suggestions? She leaves pretty quickly after eating. No more lounging around. Good mommy.

I will have them all humanely trapped and vetted when she brings the kittens around.

You might try watching her at a distance to see where she slinks into. You probably won't.see the kittens if she had them under a building until they are good sized. If you find her in a stable try feeding her closer to her kittens. You might then trick her into a live trap with canned tuna. Then put her and her kittens in a building where she and the kittens can't escape and give herif lots of fresh water food and a big liter box. That way you can socialize the kittens even if she stays timid they will at least nkt run at the sight of a nice human.

Thanks, Bud. I do have a few ppl watching her when they can to see where she goes. Also have a pair of my husband's unwashed sock at the ready should I get a cat shelter closer to my house. I just went out (9:30 PM) and she was closer to the house than I've ever seen her. She didn't run from me or my voice. Funny because I was taking milk and dry food out to her regular spot anyway. She's eating now, just outside the garage. I keep her well fed. Meat, fish, scrambled eggs, milk and water. I do worry about owls and hawks. Wonder if I left a garage door up a foot or two if I could entice her in before winter. The dogs don't bark at her.
It's good to 'talk with you', Spookerini.
