For the last twenty-plus years, or since 2002, when I deliberately picked about a dozen cats to come to live with us, two by two so they had a companion newbie here! Since then I have collected stories about the cats. At that time I started out purposefully collecting a dozen. I wanted to watch them interact more or less at the same age range without a lot of pecking order stuff to go through. The oldest of them lived to be 19.5 years passing on October 30th, 2021. He fought off dying reviving time and time again, he really did! I have a new ‘generation’ started in 2018 and now and I am adding their stories. I have probably more stories from the 2nd generation than from the first! I write about what I find interesting. This story takes the prize though in my book! It will be the first on the blog and fall to the bottom of the blog as time goes by. I really hope you enjoy them as much as I have grinned just in watching them unfold!
