I never dreamed, way back when in 2000, that by the year 2010, I would be living with ten cats. I also never imagined that I would have the privilege of rescuing another seven cats, or that I would reunite a lost cat with his owner, or that I would introduce a cat in need to a couple that did not know they needed a cat to complete their perfect family.
During the past ten years, I have relied on a simple mathematical formula: One person rescues one cat equals magic, fireworks, connections! There is nothing like the warm body of a cat to bring comfort during the cold, and there is nothing like the cool sensibility of a cat to warm the heart.
To all the cats I’ve loved before—and with apologies to Julio Iglesias—I’m yours!
Here’s to another feline-filled year.
