      way down here to Ohio!

      I'll have to look and investigate
      what the strangest pet was to enter the White House gate!
      I bet in the early years
      something strange did appear!
      Could be a fun post
      done by this host!

  7. Well, another surprise. Who woulda thunk!

    I guess one of our all time favorite cats was a large pure white one named Mananna. She would come up and pat my cheek with her paw to say it was time to get up, get ready for work, and let her out!!!

    1. I don't think I've ever seen a pure white cat. I'd probably fall in love, knowing me. ha. Mananna sounds charming..what a cute way to wake up each morning! We've let the youngest kittens stay inside overnight during the frigid temps the last few weeks and we can hear them galloping around the house in the night. ha.

    2. I must look through my pictures and find one of her. She was beautiful, and her brother, Figgy was white and grey and was also a delightful cat, and loved to find a square of sunshine anywhere in the house and take a nap.

      Delete
    3. Aw. Figgy is such a cute name! Velvet, the momma of two of our litters will come inside if we don't try to touch her. She'll find the sunny spot, too!

      Delete
    4. We've had company all day, and I just saw a couple of your comments on Jill, and have sent a response. BTW Figgy was named after the cat in Pinoccio.

  9. Wwe used to have a white cat. It was called Stanley. It lived with us for four years and we thought it was happy, but all of a sudden it left home one day and moved in with a woman who lived three doors down the Street. She bought it a diamante collar from Chatsworth House and fed it better quality cat food than we could afford. It never returned to our house again and wouldn't look me in the eye when we passed in the street. I have never trusted people called Stanley ever since.

  10. I love Alan's story.

    I think there is something wrong with anyone who does not like either cats or dogs, and if you like both then you are even better. I know that some people have had bad experiences with some cats or dogs and so I understand their dislike. But love for animals is a precious thing.

    And maybe a white cat will show up on your doorstep someday.

    I hope you are keeping warm. We have been having quite a lot of rain for us but it has basically been a slow steady rain on most of the days. We had a Thunderstorm last night which does not happen often. All this rain is hopefully putting a dent into our drought. Although it will also been lots of growth in the mountains and lots of feed for the fire season. We just cannot win here.

    Love the beautiful cardinal. He does give you a look of total love.

    God bless.

    1. Well, I'm glad you're getting some rain! Every little bit helps! WE have rain today, too, and it's washing away most of the snow.

      If a white cat showed up, I'd take him in, of course. ha. It's amazing really how all of them get along. A few spats now and then, but not bad!

      The Mister had a hilarious dream about me and my zoo, I need to post it soon. :)

      Delete
    2. Haha! I can think perfectly, poor Mr. maybe the dream is like Pat talk about you and the Zoo:)Of course I NEED some anow or rain please!!

  11. No white cat in your house? Maybe you have that children´s book about "The Cat in the Hat" in the house? When I was a student I had a job as babysitter for two Amercan children from Abilene, Texas, whose father was a student at my university, too. I must have looked at Dr. Seuss` white cat about one million times!

    Otherwise wait and see!

  12. This photograph reminds me hauntingly of that famous photo of Amelia Earhart.. do you see the resemblance?

    And how many cat have you? I've 12. Yep. All rescues except for two. All different ages, two from the parking lot of "the store that shall not be named" where I work part time (found a home for 1), one left on a Vet's doorstep in a box, one removed from my feedstore's loading dock so she wouldn't be squished, one from a rental warehouse after the Momcat was killed in the highway, two sisters found near death along a highway, one whose owner lost her home to foreclosure, one skin and bones kitten eating moths in a parking lot one night, one wild one who showed up looking pregnant - but turned out to be a pot-bellied tomcat (joke was on me - after capture I couldn't get near enough for a month to tell for sure... I wondered why the litter smelled so strong),.. one who was dumped out in my driveway seven months old and in heat... I saw the people shove her out the door of the pickup.

    I've used up all my chits for cat homes among friends, so I just end up keeping most of them. I have two theories: One - that one could get a new cat or kitten every year and probably still never have more that 20 - 21 cats as long as judicious neutering was involved.... Two - We humans owe so much to kitties to make up for past treatment and for the times they saved our bacon.. (like the Great Plague - and all those wonderfull cat cartoon characters... heh heh..

    I need sleep... Thx for the cuppa..

    1. Yes, I do know which photo you mean! I'll have to add Amelia to my posting list for this theme! :)

      I have 14 cats. It started with one pregnant stray that I started feeding. She had her babies (four) here and when they were weaned she left them for me to care for. Then another mom came and she has had two litters. She still comes around daily but her kittens (nine in total) have never left. Then we had one rescue baby kitten near death that I nursed back, so he rounds out the 14. So, eventually I hope to have all the strays in the neighborhood spayed and neutered. The mom (still won't let me touch her) and her last litter have not been done yet...but they go in about a week. Hopefully I'll be able to lure mom in a cage and take her, too! I think I can get the kittens without any trouble as they are (with the exception of one) quite friendly and let me touch them.

      I wanted to give some away but have grown attached! haha And each time I think I've found a home, I find that the people really wouldn't be good owners after all.

      Loved your story here...thanks for sharing!

    2. ps ~ the math doesn't work out for my 14, I know. One mom and one kitten didn't stay...or it would be 16 by now. :)

  13. I forgot how young he was when he died, maybe because he seemed so old to me then.
