Missing large

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.

    Good response to a snob and good response to doing your part not to pollute. Besides if you really put your mind to it, there is a lot you can do locally.

    What a decision to make – skiing or knitting. She probably could do both at the same time if she put her mind to it.

    Good for Mittens, not so good for the bottom line of Stumpy’s business.

    Instant oatmeal – yuk. It’s like pablum. I like mine with a bit of local honey.

    Soft anything, warm spot anywhere, and favorite food. That is the way to a cat’s heart. Maybe a chin or nose rub for good measure.

    Hammy, it is a good thing that it was dead before hitting the ground. Think how dramatic to see the earth racing toward you and then smash into.
