there are many people who
live full lives without
benefit of feline friends, but I'm not one of them. The cats
manage my life.
Ralph is the grand old man who turned sixteen in April 2011. Fred, also
known as the spawn of Satan, came with the house I bought in 2004 when
he was about a year old. Alice is a formerly shy girl I though
feral but wasn't -- however, she was pregnant. She gave birth to six
kittens, one of whom, a little grey girl named Jane, is going to stay
as part of the clowder. In 2008 brother Joe's cat Mr. Lincoln had
kittens and I took three of them in - Ricky, Mary, and Judith. They
were joined in early 2009 by Claude, a pound kitten I kept dreaming
about until I went down and adopted him - he is Fred's disciple.
In the spring and summer of 2005, the resident cats were not so

& Betsy, live in the yard, but the
cats are still not exactly thrilled. They were joined by Chuy Rex, a
xolitizcuintle (aka Mexican hairless) I dogshare with my brother Hop.

move exacerbated Laura's health problems and she went to the
Rainbow Bridge the morning of July 7, 2004, leaving a huge hole in my

I miss them one and all!
grief leaves holes in our
hearts so that others may enter.
If you have an empty spot in your heart & home,
visit a shelter and adopt a pet,
or take in a stray (remember to neuter or spay).
