gentle reader, it is with a sad heart that i tell you this is the first time in thirty-one years that my house has been without a feline protector. kiroman and i bought our first persian cat in 1986. we were very poor college students and i'm sure the thought of us buying a designer cat seems outlandish, at best....

gentle reader, i can't say that i buy into the mantra of new year, new you. why? because a turn of a calendar page does not change who you are. if it were that easy, the world would be an even more magical place to live, wouldn't it? so many make new year resolutions. so many buy that gym membership....
