My mom has never been a big fan of cats - at least not since I've known her. We had two cats while I was growing up, and after only having them a year or two, she got rid of them without consulting the rest of the family.
And yes, I consider this when I talk about finding a new home for our cat that spreads mouse guts all over our furniture. Maybe I finally understand my mom a bit better, is all I can say about that.
Either way, here is Mom, a couple of weeks ago, sitting out on our porch in that unusually warm fall weather we had, snuggling one of our cats. Sure, this is the GOOD cat, but it's still an odd thing for me to behold. Nice,... but odd.
