The cat does not offer services. The cat offers itself. - William S. Burroughs

Monkey Cat rests after a long twitter session (yay! a Mac-cat!)

When I left New York, one of the hardest things I ever did in my life was to leave Henry and Ralph behind; there were logistics and other factors that made their transport impossible, but not a day goes by that I don't think about them. I miss them terribly. What fills the void, not completely, but certainly makes me smile everyday, are my "anipals" I follow on Twitter. I know that to a lot of people it seems silly, but for me it certainly helps ease the pain of having had to leave my kitties behind. You can find my feline friends at Cats who Twitter and at Twitter Critters. But my furry friends are not just cats, there is also Max the Golden, a golden retriever who loves his tennis ball! It still may seem silly to some of you humans out there, and while it is not a replacement for the real McCoy, all you need is some animal appreciation and a little suspension of disbelief and you can feel some of the love offered by a pet. And, so I'd like to say hai! *headbutt* & *nosetap* to all! (and feel better Oscar!)

  1. Animals have always been a huge part of my life too. My husband and I are both huge dog lovers. We lost our black lab, Missy, a year ago and have only little Mondo (my yorkie-poo) but are looking for a new puppy this spring. Our animals are family. Get your pet-pats wherever you need to - I understand :)

  2. Such a lovely kitteh at the top of the page! MOL You too Brew! I is glad we makes you feel better...thanks for sharing

  3. I am sure it must be so hard to leave behind your cats, but on the bright side - you have totally enriched our and Bat-girl's lives by being here.
