Where Does an 18-Year Old Kitty Sleep?




Same as the gorilla... anywhere she wants! She switches locations fairly often... when we first noticed her getting a little goofy, over a year ago, she chose the kitchen sink for about a month. Since then it's been a progression of places that were seldom ideal to the silly human brain: on top of piles of paper, right in front of the refrigerator door, etc. But this week, she's taken possession of a box. It fits her perfectly. I know, this is really a more normal cat choice. Yet, I smile every time I walk by and see her "hiding" in there.

And the book? Yes, it was really good. It turns out that it's really a love story, although you don't know that for a long, long time as you read (which was why I didn't recognize it as the favorite movie of a friend of mine until nearly the end... sorry Elaine, it didn't seem like the same plot!). It was a 1942 movie with Ronald Colman and Greer Garson that was nominated for 7 Oscars, but Mrs. Minever beat it out of getting any. Anyway, I sure like the way the book draws you in until you really want to know what happened to the characters.
