Cat staff since 12 when a teacher gave me one of litter. Once married a cat that resembled the first, came up to the porch to join a party and stayed for 12 years. Of the 11 who have allowed us to serve, 10 have been rescues, and 6 Siamese(3 chocolate point, 2 chocolate Applehead, and 1 lilac). The first of the chocolate points was named by a rescuer - Cafe au Lait, and the Cafe name has continued in Cafe Latte, and Cafe Mocha. The rescues have not been sought but either given to us or came on their own. They seem to know when there is a vacancy and show up to fill it. While we mourn those that are gone, they are only physically gone. We still giggle over a roast dragged halfway across the floor, or pathetically meowing strained on a neighbor's roof only to be at the food dish minutes later. Same strained pathetic cat the next day. After a discussion with her about the neighbor cutting down the dogwood she used to get on the roof(he hated cats), she never climbed upon a roof again.

    Turned out a stray in the neighborhood was fed by everyone. Friendly, let you pet him. When his main feeder moved, he came in the house and let it be known he was moving in. He continued to check out the neighborhood, but was always home at night and generally in someone’s lap.

    Sorry to hear that so many have negative things to say about assisted living facilities. We took out insurance to pay for several years of care when we get to that time we need someone to keep an eye on us but still can care for ourselves.The cost here is not as much as mentioned above. At first glance the cost seems high, but the annual cost of three meals a day; property, utility yard, and house expenses plus taxes for all of the above, the amount paid to the facility is not bad. For those who do not have family members or those not nearby to look after them, knowing that there is someone 24 a day available to care for you is comforting and a safety factor. As with anything, it is not for everyone but it nice to know that there are options,

    Assisted Living is one of the better ideas that have come along – responsibility from all chores, your own apartment, full maid service, three meals a day(with table cloths), outings, nightly entertainment, no mowing or shoveling snow.

    Looked up the origin of Do your ears hang low. After reading Wikipedia and another source, I can’t sing it anymore.
