we have cats at 7420. not two, but, three cats- lucky, lucy, and ellwood. I've never thought of myself as a cat person but at this point i guess you could say i am. they each have distinct personalities. with our kids choosing to live a world away from little a-town, i can't imagine how lonely our lives might be without our feline companions.
life with three cats is not without its share of problems. there's the expense of buying food and litter, vet visits and shots, hairballs and cat fights. the list goes on.
but the biggest problem for me is vacuuming. we have one those shark navigators. no matter if i vacuum once a week, or every day or two, the shark sucks up what looks to be a whole 'nother kitty.
yes, there are three of them but could there be a ghost kitty lurking about adding his hair and dander to the mix? just how many cats have passed here at 7420, you might ask. the answer is-- only one. our daughter's cat, gus, lived with us while k was away at tech. maybe the hardest thing I've ever had to do was making the call to tell k i'd found gus in the driveway. i thought he was just being a cat-- but he was "gone". maybe the ghost of gus is roaming the house, contributing his share to the litter box, shedding on the hardwood and area rugs. but probably not.
the truth is the three cats and we humans just shed-- a lot!
long live the shark.
