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.

    Think it is Mom who is fussy, insecure, and spoiling Marley. If she is not careful, Marley will: be insecure, rebel, or realize she can get whatever is wants from her mother.

    There is a world of difference between cast iron (love it) and other cookware. I think that it is much better than other much more expensive pots and pans. Also, a world of difference between lard(can you still buy it) and real butter, and substitutes. They latter just do not cook as well.

    Can’t see sausage as being good for any cat – way too much fat and spices.

    To each his own. My preference is Woodford Reserve, a true Bourbon.
