I have a soft spot for animals who need homes, having found my boyhood cat in front of a neighbor’s basement apartment in the spring of 1990. Even though the cat was trained to use a litter box, my mom was unable to find anyone in the neighborhood who would claim ownership. That led me to think that somebody abandoned this cat, a young Calico that I named Tiger and who has lived to be nearly 19 years old. Today, Tiger is on her last legs and her body is wearing down despite a regimen of no less than four medications. She may not be around much longer, but ut I’ll always think fondly of her and thank my lucky stars that I found her when I did.
