Alex adopted me a number of years ago. He actually belonged to the neighbor on the east side of me, yet spent hours hanging
out with his kitty friends that lived with my neighbors to the west. He traveled through my yard going back and forth between
home and friends.

At that time I had been laid off at work and was spending more time in my home office and patio area. Alex began spending more and more time on one of my Adirondack chairs, during which we had great conversations. He is very vocal and expressive. He also started to follow me into the house. He was unbelievably well mannered. I set out a water bowl for him. I was also rather allergic to him.

An allergy prescription and a year later, I set out a food bowl. I still cannot keep Alex in the house overnight (swollen yucky eyes and congestion issues). Yet he knows that he is welcome to join his kitty friends next door in a comfy kitty igloo in the kitties’ house. It’s a perfect arrangement.

The Best Neighborhood (05/02/10)


Three quick rings of my door bell followed by the sound of running feet - one pair of feet belonging to a newly turned 4 year old and the other belonging to his mother. I waited to open the door until the sounds of giggles began to fade, then carefully opened my screened door and peeked around to wave at the mom as they both disappeared into their own front door down the block.

Happy May Day
