Re: Re: Piggyback gardening

Darn all people who are irresponsible with neutering/spaying their
pets...thank goodness for angels in disguise who look out for these
little guys. Sounds like being spoiled rotten is the best thing that
could have happened to both the kitty and Pat & John. I love happy
endings...now if only Moses can get so lucky!

Good for you Melody! Fortunately Pat & John adopted that little
orange<br>tabby that I could not run off last night. Even w/ Sugar going
after him<br>and me carrying him off, he kept coming right back. After
we came in he<br>must have gone across the street and gone into John's
wood shop and he<br>just fell in love w/ him. Sweet cat, I hated to run
him off, but Sugar<br>would have torn him to shreds.<br><br>Pretty baby
about 8 or 9 months old, with a little tuft of white on the<br>end of
his tail. I adore happy endings! He'll be ROTTEN in a
week,<br>guaranteed!<br><br><br>Pam Evans<br>Kemp, TX<br>zone
