Adopted #midnighthaiku

My son, touched by the plight of a shivering black and white cat who sought shelter in his home last winter, invested in a cat door and an automatic feeder. The local cats, feral and well fed alike, touched by his thoughtfulness, adopted him. At the last count, five part-timers had time shares on his attention…with this one successfully supervising from his lap.

    We can relate… our cat flap is like a revolving door sometimes, and the best part of it is, they all have homes!

    “Human animal enslaved”–cats do that, don’t they? But I’m sure he gets back as much as he gives…(K)

    Your son is a peach to do that! What a warm heart he has! We had five cats at one point – and three dogs who got on with them just fine. Two were feral, and then not feral, moving right in. I love reading things like this!
