Not death-worthy

Blood tests revealed no terminal illnesses like feline leukemia or feline immunodeficiency virus, so now we have a cat.

Kitty tally is at $173.

Vet said she was a she, about six years old and has had (obviously) a hard life.

It's kind of scary all the things that can go wrong with a mammal like this. Birds seem so much easier.

I quote myself at the last four bird expos, "We can't have a conure because they are $100 and there's no room for another cage."

Now, of course, the apartment will become an experiment in door management. Who will fold first - the budgie who wants to stay free, the woman who wants natural weather and circulation, the man whose studio is where the litterbox is going. . .?

I notice the cat was not on the list of potential "first folders" an indication of just how long total feline household domination takes.
