So many of you had made comments, and all positive, about the cat in my photo. Well sadly, she disappeared on Sept 7 and we have not seen her since. We are afraid she became some coyote's meal. Her name was Mother Cat (inventive, isn't it?) and she had been with us 12 years, coming to adopt us with her three kittens. They are long gone, having either been adopted out or lost, but she had remained. We miss her very much, but Oscar, our other cat, doesn't at all. It will be some time before I will be able to change the picture for one without her. She managed to train my husband to give her treats whenever she wanted, so you can never say that men can't be trained. I had hoped to get that secret out of her but now that opportunity is gone. Many times were the night when she slept on my lap while I was reading. She was a lovely friend to our family.
