HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOTOR!
"I refuse to acknowledge my age."
Motor is a shelter cat. We named him that because he purred so constant and loudly. He turned 11 years old this weekend. He received a can of tuna that he didn't have to share with our other housecat, Maggie.
Even though he is old for a cat, he still likes to "help" me make the bed and play with yarn. Pets become a true part of the family. They are playmates for us and our children. They don't judge us when we fail (and we all fail). Best of all, they love us even when we feel unloved by the rest of the world. They are a wonderful balm to the soul. Not to mention, endless entertainment!"Look, Mommy! I bought a kitty-cat!"
"This is not what I signed up for."
