Well Happy Monday you gorgeous old bird! My very vocal and stray cat (and therefore tragically not technically MY cat) paid me an early morning visit today, hollering and meowing and slamming himself against the screen door until I came to his rescue with food. Do you know the great personal strength it requires to not bring this filthy cat into my home and force-cuddle him on my sofa until he loves me? With his bottlebrush tail and jet black coat! I truly believe he could love me! His name is Bojangles, thank you for asking. Here is a short video of him eating.
