today i returned to my cat friends. a little girl cat had a cold and i called for a doctor. she liked to toss toys in the air and chase them, and to snuggle against my shoulder. she had a fever and i stayed extra long to snuggle her back. she was good at getting attention. there were two scared cats, and i spoke with them gently, from outside the open doors to their cages. there was a big orange man cat who sat in my lap. he was sweet (the little girl cat tried to jump on his head and play with him and he lay there quietly) and mellow. one ear was torn and ragged, someone had taken a chunk out of his tail, and his hip bones protruded like an old cat's. i suspect he once met with a nasty raccoon. it was good to be back with my gentle cat friends.
