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.
