No I haven’t finished the projects yet. In fact another one has taken me on:
It seems someone came in a few days ago and dropped off a cat in our neighborhood. She’s been hanging out around the pool.
Since I got to Florida 15 months ago, I’ve been content not being responsible for anyone but me. But this little lady [she’s 3 colors, so is probably female] is so friendly and, when the park manager mentioned that she has lost weight since she arrived here, my heart melted.
So, I carted over to PetSmart today and laid in a supply of kitten food [she’s at least an adolescent but, since she’s been losing weight, I figure she can use the extra nutrients to start with] litter, a litter box, a scratcher and a couple of toys. I drove home, set everything up, walked over to the pool and—she’s nowhere to be found. Of course.
Now that I’ve committed myself, I’m feeling a bit anxious for her though she probably was simply hiding from the sun [it’s a scorcher out there, today].
So, anyway, I may be taking on a new family member tonight and a trip to the vet just got added to tomorrow’s itinerary. If there is a merciful God, she’s not already pregnant and, as well as her shots, she’ll be staying at the vet’s for several hours while she gets a full check-up, gets spayed, etc.
So, so much for being responsible only for myself. **sigh**
Oh, well, I’ve had a parade of cats go through my home for 35 years or more. [Or, to be more precise, numerous feline owners have allowed me to reside in their house with them.]
Tess lived to be 19, fergoshsakes!
This little lady hasn’t even told me her name, yet—let alone whether she’ll want to help with the blogs. If she has a penchant for politics, spiritual matters or even funny videos, she’ll likely put in an appearance every so often. We’ll see.
