lazy days

The lazy hazy days of summer are upon us and there is nothing so comfortable as lying on a nice cool concrete floor with a breeze blowing through the doorway. This is Tammy who has the longest tail that I have seen on a cat. It runs the length of her body as can be seen in this picture. The end of her tail is under her front paws and chest. I am still amazed by her serendipity at going from a miserable starving existence to the pampered good life that she now leads. Unfortunately, on an individual basis we can’t save all of the animals of the world but Mary managed to save this one kitten and give it a very good life. Reminds me of the story of the man on a south seas Pacific island with the starfish washed up on the shore. It is a long story which is one of my favorites and most everyone has heard some version of it so I won’t repeat the story but that is what Mary did for a helpless sick kitten one day. Have a good day, I know the cat will. Her only problem is trying to decide whether to eat the dry cat food, the canned cat food, or hold out for table scraps. Or maybe just not eat anything at the moment and go take a nap on the super soft bed. Decisions, decisions. But it is a good type of problem to have. Lew
