Last Week’s Catch Up And Cat Logic

Happy Birthday Mr AJ!

Starting with the most important thing first. Last Monday Mr AJ celebrated his 15th birthday! I’ll keep saying it for forever. I can’t believe he once fitted in the palm of my hands and ruled the street. Well, I like to think he ruled the street. I once saw him late one night in London chasing a fox through the terraced gardens in the snow. The fox went under the fence, he went over the fence. Maybe they were playing.

How else do you think they’ve been around for so many hundreds of thousands of millions of years. That is until you see it for yourself in real life and you’re blown away. Then shame creeps in that you thought being a human you’re superior being conditioned to think we are or as humans automatically think like that.
