  3. Thanks, I’ll give that a shot when I get home.

    BTW, my fam is off to Spain to visit one of our daughters in a couple of days, so I’ll be (strangely) silent for awhile.

    No doubt I’ll hear the sighs of relief in Sevilla.

    Would he actually go after them, or just trip them?

    Harriet. Polar opposite to Langston.

    Most persistent eye contact I’ve seen in a cat.

    My cat Frida — also a tabby — is like that too. Or was, until she went blind late last year. I miss those soul-searching gazes.

    We were Langston’s fourth family. He was a dumpster cat rescued and rejected by three others because he couldn’t be handled. He liked being petted, but would turn vicious in a heartbeat, biting and scratching. I spent several years taming him, one touch at a time.

    Yes, he attacked strangers. Unprovoked.

    About the time he became affectionate and trustworthy, he developed a nasal fungus. Very expensive treatment. well over $1500. And ineffective. Very sad.

  8. R.I.P. Rindgold. Rind as in orange peel.

    Another dumpster rescue. Survived nine moves, 19 years, 9/11, lost in Brooklyn, being sat upon, kidney failure, 200 pound doggy sibling, boy toddler.

  9. petrushka: Cats are the object of worship. They do not need to believe.

    What do they call people who merely lack belief in Cat or cats?
