I have been cat sitting our neighbor's three cats since Friday. I have nothing against cats. Nothing at all. I think that cats are fine animals. Yes, they are independent. That is part of what makes a cat a cat.
I had two cats when I was a kid. One was named Frisky and I can't remember what the other one's name is. Both cats disappeared, under suspiciously mysterious circumstances. I am not convinced that my parents had anything to do with at least one of the missing cats, as it went missing right after mom and dad bought a case of cat food at Pay 'n Save.
