My daughter is no longer dating her ex-boyfriend and has been staying with me for the past couple of months while she saves to get an apartment of her own. You who have followed this blog for awhile may remember BabyCat, who she took with her when she moved in with her (now) ex. BabyCat stayed with her father (my ex) for awhile, but now she’s back, looking no worse for wear. She knows she’s a looker. She’s not a Maine Coon, but she looks a lot like one.
BabyCat’s the only cat I ever met who “barks” when she wants attention: really, a very scratchy, deep throated “mrow,” said quickly so it comes out sounding almost like a dog bark.
