I recently acquired a kitten--or, more accurately, she acquired me. They found her in the parking lot at my apartment complex.
I was going to the front office area, the other day, to get my mail when I heard someone say, "ask Arlene!."
I was about to ask, "Ask Arlene What?" when the office manager asked enthusiastically, "you want a cat? It's real friendly!
I took one look at he little black and white imp in her arms and said, "sure!"
And that's how I became a cat owner again. Just look at her...is she not the cutest little thing you ever did see? She's a furry ball of perpetual motion. She's quite the entertainer. She's a joy.
'Jesus collection,' until she jumped up there ad started knocking things off the shelf. I couldn't get after her too much, since it's a cat's natural instinct to be curious about the word around her. I'm on the look out for an enclosed case for my collection, as I figure she's not going to leave any surface untouched.
