I should have known there was a full moon when I heard the familiar sound of two cats mating outside—in our driveway, to be blunt. I had been having trouble sleeping and was tossing fitfully, and I was so out of it that I thought I was hearing outtakes from recent televised political debates (of all things). This is the truth: I could not suppress the voice of Michele Bachmann saying, and I can’t remember the exact quote, but you get the idea, “There are no ‘do-overs’ at the White House.”

Well, at Catland, I am not looking for an immediate "do-over," either, as the “No Vacancy” shingle remains in effect and enforceable with Cat Man. But any Cat Lady knows that two cats mating can mean a litter of kittens on the horizon.

And yet… would I do this—this full-time “business” of being Cat Lady—again, at some point in the near future, starting over with a new family and writing a new group biography? I think I can now hear the high-pitched voice of Sarah Palin speaking to me directly: You Betcha!

Query of the Day: Are you in the “do-over” mode and wanting more cats?
