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.

A Kitty Tale (June 5, 2010)

LOVE LOVE LOVE (Think Beatles Music)

I just think it is wonderful to have a living critter - through his actions - that demonstrates unconditional adoration. Of course he does expect a little in return, such as a nap (cradled between my two pillows - or in the linen closet) or being the center decoration on a shelf at Christmas time...

Another benefit for me of critter adoration is when Alex's friend Panther stops by to visit. Remember having your own mat/towel to take a nap on in preschool - well, these two take pride in knowing which towel belongs to whom. Then there is Panther, who one day just decided he would photograph better on the all white part of my bed. What a guy!

Note to Mrs N. - don't let Mr. N see the photos of Panther :)
Chat later
