That Darn Cat

   Facts are hard to come by in an old folks home, where every tale has the ring of truth in it, and yet, every tale may come from the distant past and live only in the memories of the residents.

   Now, I hear, fact or fantasy I know not which, that the "stray" cat that some people are trying to drive away and some are feeding and inviting in, is not a stray at all, but is a cat that Inga moved in with, pays the "pet surchage" to keep, and has escaped.

   I could ask Inga, but I'm sure I would be just as confused after talking to her as I am now.  Her deep Swedish accent is charming, but not easily understood. Ja, sure, das cat mine ist.  (Did I mention that Inga was raised in Germany, and lived her adult life in Minnesota?)

   Seems to me I saw the cat hanging 'round before Inga moved in.

   Stay tuned.

I'm not sure if you are for or against this feline. Just discovered a family of cats living in my back yard. I'm on the fence. I don't really want them there but at the same time they are so cute. Paula

As always Chuck I enjoyed the entry.  I just lost a great Bro-in-law, been visiting my sister to help with the Stuff that  has to be done.  One of the Hospice nurses told my sister a stray cat was under her car.  She called Animal control (why?) they came out could not catch the cat.  Shirley had to go shopping so took her husbands car.  Arriving at Wal-Mart she was greeted with a squeal.  Folks gathered round the car. Old ladies on their knees trying to coax the cat out. Shirley told them she had to shop and get back home.  She figures that cat is at WalMart shopping.  The trap set by Animal control is still waiting "For the Cat to come back!".  WE also have cat problems (we make most of them)  as well as Cat houses on the EAst Coast. The best to you and yours there. I enjoy  your wit and insight.  Jack, ShipsLog
