Arrival Story:
I volunteer at a pet store for a local no-kill cat shelter that does adoptions at the store. Rick James was one of the caged kitties at the store. He was so loud and yappy, sticking his paws through the bars for attention and falling off of his litterbox in excitement, that I knew I just had to have him. (I love the obnoxious ones.) I talked my husband into adopting him, and we brought him home that night.

Rick James isn't scared of anything, and he loves new experiences. He's a momma's boy and follows me around everywhere. He's not as loud as he was while caged, but he can still be pretty obnoxious. Still, I love the little rat-bastard.

What's Going On, Anyway?

It lives in the garage!

Newsflash: There is another cat living in the garage!

I discovered this yesterday when Dad left the door to the garage open for a few moments. It is a little black cat, very stinky--not daisy-fresh like we indoor cats. I was beside myself with curiosity. I tried to go into the garage and investigate, but Dad put a stop to that. What is this cat doing here? Aren't four cats enough for my parents?

I convened with Ferris, Lola, and Molly about this development. They just stared at me. Finally Lola told me that the little black cat has been living in the garage for about three months now. She must be lying, of course. There's no way I'm that unobservant. Right?
