I’ve spent a lot of time this week at parties and music gatherings with my friends and the No. 1 question people always ask is, How many cats do you have?
Well, I never tell the number any more because people who don’t have pets or who only have one or two freak out to hear of any more than three, and I DO have more than three! I do rescue work with the help of a friend who owns a cat clinic and I have a $ 600 per month holistic pet food and litter bill, need I say more? There are CATS in my house … along with electric catboxes. It’s tidy and clean and most people come in and say, Gee, you can’t really tell you have cats here. So there!
The take-home message that surfaced was really that I need to help people understand rescue, so I steer the conversation to what kind of rescue work I do. One friend (who has gossiped about my kitties) said she didn’t even know that I did rescue! The nature of rescue is that you take in special needs kitties, get them better or socialized or whatever, and adopt them out.
So I talk not about the “numbers” but about the “work” and the “quality”, you know, like, two months ago someone brought me a little kitten that someone had locked in a carrier and thrown away in a dumpster, and I’m helping that kitten to calm down and be ready for adoption… and right before Thanksgiving, a sick cat went up a very tall tree and was stuck there for a week before the fire department came and shot it out of the tree with a high-powered firehose. (Don’t worry, they caught him in a net!). THAT kitty is doing much better and will be adopted out probably after the first of the year.
It makes for a much healthier, less gossipy kind of conversation.

I had a moment. I admit it. A moment of just sheer utter sad, thinking on the amount of death and loss and unpleasantness that’s been floating about lately.
I thought of my daughter’s poetry book, which she started after Kekoa died to work through her grief. Just as she was finishing up with it, now she writes about Apollo.
I thought about the little shadow in the background that used to flit about.
I thought about the happiness certain things bring me and the kids.
I thought about the things that my life center around, my life’s work, and before you knew it I had driven somewhere I wasn’t planning on going, and walked somewhere I wasn’t planning on walking, and signed something I wasn’t planning on signing.
I thought I wouldn’t do this, but I did.
This is Penelope. She is outgoing and awesome and I love her very much already.
I thought that might happen.
