About a week earlier, I found our longtime pet Pesky the Cat, whose contract had expired on our porch. I know how many feel about cats, but he was the most lovable, attentive guy--he'd come in every morning, jump on the bed and wait for his head rub. We had him 'bout 12 1/2 years, and he was a couple three when he adopted us; more like stumble onto us on the brink of starvation. Aspen is probably tryin' to play with him, and he's ignoring her. That's the way he always treated the interloper, Lizzie PitBull. Peace, love and Pets!
