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.

    Auto-correct can be helpful, even funny, until they refuse to let you spell a name you know is correct and the checker won’t believe you.

    Lint brushes don’t work. Lint rollers partially pick up lint and cat hair, but pet hair fur hair rollers especially made for pet hair, are supposed to get rid of pet hair. Can’t find such a wonder, but willing to try.

    Cats that are indoor only live longer thaan indoor-outdoor and much longer that outdoor only. When one rescued cat was in such terrible condition (starving, broken leg that had to be rebroken, and that was for starters), he had to stay in, thereafter each additional one was indoor only. He lived to be 19.

    You can’t change someone. The best way to handle difficult people is to ignore that they exist, but be polite or at least not obvious about it.

    Love the song.Fortunately, the two cats do not go outside even if the door happens to open. No racing for the great outdoors.

    Love them, but dogs do insist on going out to relieve themselves in all sorts of weather. There are pads that can be trained to use, at least some can be trained to use them.
