about a month ago i had an email from a friend working in a shelter. there was a 16 yr old cat that was at risk. she was willing to take him home if she had to but had wanted to adopt our suzie who was living in the bathroom and she only had room for one more. we decided that suzie would stay here as she had a potential home interested and she was settled here anyway, and my friend would try the old guy at her place.
well, suzie did get her home, and the old guy went home with my friend, so all should have been well. except he is a bit of a bully cat and causing havoc in her home. going back to the shelter is not an option as he was already determined to be unadoptable. so by a slightly circular route, tigger has finally made it here. and the first thing he is losing is his name. every second cat abandoned is named tigger. it must have something to do with people who read winnie the pooh stories and then go looking for a cat.
so tonight my task is finding a suitable name for our new 16 year old cat, one that just maybe will give him something more lasting than a popular dumping name.
the chinese believe that whatever you are doiing on new years day, is what you will be doing for the rest of the year. heaven help me please.
