C is indeed for Cats

The first time I ever stayed away from home was at a working women's hostel. I spent the first night there listening to what sounded like babies crying. I spent many days wondering where the babies disappeared during the day, why I never actually saw any of them, only to discover it was the cats. They sound disconcertingly like human babies. I stayed there for a year and never did get used to their all-night mewing.

Yeah you've guessed, I'm not a cat person. The only cats I really like are the Cheshire Cat and Garfield.

However I do have a bunch of cat crazy friends who bombard Facebook with cute cat pictures. One of them runs a veritable cat home, bringing in more and more homeless creatures everyday. Then there are others who are so cued in to their cats (and so clueless about humans) that when I had my babies one of them called to congratulate me and asked "Have they opened their eyes yet?"

This then, is for all of them.

Some go this way, and some go that way. But as for me, myself, personally, I prefer the short-cut.
