TUXEDO TUESDAY, TOO ... Meet Meemaw!
Since it's so close to Thanksgiving, I've decided to dedicate this week's Tuxedo Tuesday, Too to the cat who started it all: Meemaw. Her "gotcha" story is interesting. The house next door was vacant and one day Mom was sitting on the back stairs of her house watching the sunset when she saw a little tuxedo cat trying without success to catch a grasshopper. Mom had only Peaches (her dog) at the time, so she went inside for a handful of dog food to entice the cat into coming over. Needless to say, the dog food attracted the starving cat BIG TIME, but the kibbles were too big. Mom started putting the kibbles into her own mouth to crunch them into pieces to feed to the cat. Mom thought that the cat was just a kitten because she was so small and delicate ... But, she wasn't. She was a "momma" kitty with four five-week-old kittens to feed ... Mom's sweetness to the cat earned the cat's trust. That very evening, Meemaw moved three of her kittens (the fourth had been stolen by an IDIOT which led to the kitten's untimely trip to the Rainbow Bridge before his first birthday) to Mom's porch and then into Mom's house. If it weren't for Meemaw's pioneering encounter with Mom, I doubt that I'd be living here today. So ... three cheers for Meemaw and a debt of gratitude/thanks for paving the way for formerly homeless cats like me.
