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.

    Having just having to put our 19 year old to sleep I greatly sympathize. We now have a new companion for the remaining fur-child from a no-kill, and glad we did. It has taken a week for us, now-senior cat and new cat to adjust but so thankful that we decided to immediately get a new companion for him – and us.

    Do you still eat there? Or just ignore the cookies. Have yet to have one that had any taste.

    What fun. Like the idea.

    Same here. Soup is pinch, dash, handful. Baking is chemistry. Measuring flour requires spooning flour into the measuring cup, not the cup into the flour. No, I am not OCD. Baking is the only time I am precise.

    That is too funny, but I want to know what the fifth panel looks like.

    She’s enjoying her garden friends while you enjoy her cookies. Win-win proposition as I see it.

    Let him swat the plastic balls on the bottom of the tree that were bought especially for him. He will appreciate it.

    I don’t care how many emails you write. But the fact that you read at least some means that you are interested in your readers and take the time to respond at times.

    Amanda, my sympathies. Why I work late at night when all, expecially the fur-people are demanding attention. Takes half as long as when writing is done during the day.
