My grey kitty named Romeo is my constant companion now when I'm home. He's evicted my other kitty, Chelsea, from her spot next to me. That's pretty assertive for him. Generally he lets his wives have their own way. Poor guy has asthma so he wheezes while he snoozes next to me. I like it that he knows me well enough that he feels compelled to comfort me. The cats are better at cuddling up with me than the three goldfish.
My neighbors did a wonderfully kind thing for me yesterday. I came home to find my grass cut, my back patio completely tidied up, and the concrete swept. It was a lovely gift from several neighbors. Thanks to S. & K & J. You ladies are just the BEST!
