Take a little time to remember, reflect and celebrate those people that didn’t come home from work six years ago today.

In a few hours I’m getting a new member of the household, his name is Midas and he’ll be my new cat. Or should I say I’ll be his new girl.

I was given the green light by the Chicago Anti-Cruelty Society yesterday in an application process that would put the FBI to shame; the only thing I didn’t have to do is take a drug test and get hooked up to a lie detector.

But you do need to protect the furry ones from the nut cases of the world.

The transportation department came out yesterday and marked off the crappy sidewalks on the north side of the street. I’m almost reluctant to believe it, but I finally think after all of these years of pissing and moaning that the sidewalks across the street are about to be redone.

It's wonderful that you got a cat. Hail to your new owner, who will take wonderful care of you and shower you with love.

I've been owned by cats for 30 years and have decided, that out of all the things that I do and I am, that being a piece of living cat furniture is one of my favorite occupations.
