Re: RE: holiday decorating

Daryl: Please don't base your cat decision on my experience with
cats...I don't think our little family is a good one for cats as every
one of the four we've ever had turn out to be highly neurotic (as
opposed to our dogs) in character...incidentally, our first two cats
were wonderful mousers...I always felt half sorry for the mice since
with Tiki and Paws they never stood a chance. But these two we have now,
Miko and Katie...forget it! Although they can catch any vole that
ventures anywhere near our place, they can't get the mice...go figure!

And cleaning a closet, by the way, requires an enormous amount of
self-discipline, as I find most of what I shove in a closet is really
stuff I'm too lazy to properly put away or throw away as the case
