Saturday I was shopping and although it had been raining when I left for the store, by the time I got back to the car the day had turned sunny and the sky was blue. The weather was so beautiful, after days of rain, that I could not resist stopping on the w

Oh, Tormentor Of Tiny Animals!

Very Old Our cat must be about 16 years old now, I am not quite sure because she was "given" to us by our daughter when she moved back home from lodgings, many years ago. How Old Is That In Human Years? I always thought that to calculate a cat's a
