    I get 120 years, so what's a good thing to get at 60 then? Oh, I know! A cat!

    Trufa, my cat died a couple of weeks ago. Still mourning her and don't feel I want another cat soon, and a dog is out of the question.

    My son just came with Emily, the guinea pig mascot they have at his classroom, we're keeping it for the holydays.

    I thought the stray I was feeding was eating an awful lot. I discovered this little drama plays out nightly-

    My parents had raccoons that would take the lids off of their garbage cans looking for food. My dad decided just to leave food out for them instead of trying to fight with them all the time (mostly dry dog food, leftover vegetable parts, etc.). Now, if my dad forgets to put food out, they come and knock on the door.

    Cattitude

    My gray stray is a scrapper, nightly defending his bowls against coons, possums, skunks (as if he didnt stink enough already). Other neighborhood cats I used to feed, wont set foot in the yard or else he sprints down the stairs and rips them a new one. I think he takes it out on them since he cant do much about the dominant coons.

    He seemed totally feral in the beginning and wouldnt let anyone within 15 feet. It took many months to earn his trust, and he was still hissing at me each time I opened the front door after nine months of spoiling him. 'Its ME already, the guy thats been feeding and brushing your ratty head every day!' I assume he was abused.

    He's had an awful mouth infection for years (his neck swells at times and can barely eat) but I cant conceive how to deal with a vet. I barely managed to get him in one of those cardboard carriers once and he ripped thru it in literally two seconds. Even if I somehow got him there (they wont prescribe knockout pills), he would just be all fangs and fury.

    Now I never stop marveling at what an affectionate fella he's turned into. A little lovin' can make all the difference. He's like me, we both rarely leave the house, cant stand the heat, we're both sick, hiss at people, and just need a sympathetic soul willing to look past the outer pain and defense.
