I am a cat person, and I’m enjoying this story. Nabuquadzhuneer’s story reminded me of how I acquired my cat. She was a half-grown stray. We had had several kitties over the past year, and they all got killed. So I declared No More. But this cat just wouldn’t go away. One day I told her, OK, one bowl of scraps and then you’re on your own. Over the next couple of weeks, she slowly worked her way into the house. She stayed with us for 15 years.
