I love the help my cats give me when I am working on a project. I went outside to take advantage of high cloud light and ended up with more help than I knew what to do with. We finally got it done. They are worth every penny.
This June has been so hot we finally broke down and installed the a/c for the outside cats. I got no help from any of them which is what cats are about. But they should enjoy the outdoors when it gets too oppressive for them.
All of my life I've been allergic to cats.
I've been intrigued and curious about them but some of them have caused my throat to close up leaving me unable to breath.
Lot's of people over the years have explained all about cat dander and touching my face.
Somehow it always came out sounding like it was my fault. I even had a girlfriend tell me that I could get allergy shots for it....after I told her it was her cat or me. The cat won.
Curiously, not all cats would cause me breathing problems. Of course, I kept a wide berth and just figured out that maybe that was why they didn't bother my allergies.
To further complicate things I had to run a steady barrage of attempts made by my loving wife justify why we needed a cat.
One morning a few months ago.....
We are sitting on the back porch drinking our morning coffee when this orange cat runs across our back yard to jump up in my lap. I've never laid eyes on this cat before. He completely ignores my wife and commences to turn on the charm with me.....me. I guess he didn't get the memo.
Well, he is here to stay now.
Allow me to introduce El Gato.
