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.

    Last time my hair was cut was last February. I had wanted to let it grow anyway, but hate going through the awkward growing hair out period. Thank goodness COVID isolated me until November and everyone liked my new hairstyle when they saw it.

    Must be a child exploring new things. My uncle as a child also ate the dogfood. They were great pals, so guess my uncle thought if the dog ate so could he.

    Distance is relative. A friend in Texas thinks nothing of driving 3 hours to a meeting. For me 6 miles is the other side of the county and rarely go to the shopping area there. If you are already in the neighborhood, might as well take advantage of the McD.

    At first thought the Grirl was eating the Shimp Souffle Medley rather than feeding to the cats. Sounds good and I am sure that it is tasty as otherwise the cats would ignore it.

    Love it. So cat. There is never a box too small even if half the body hangs out one side.

    I guess the manufacturers make the perfumes extra strong so that they would last from insert, to mail, to you. I stopped subscribing to the offending magazines as the aroma burned by eyes and throat. Most magazine articles these days are hardly discernible from ads. Mostly fluff with pictures intermingled with barely disguised by ads.

    Thought Canadians used the metric system and that Ben was Canadian. When trying to figure the conversion I asked Siri. Never can remember the formula.
