They say dogs have masters, but cats have servants. My two cats – Fred and Dude – certainly live up to that axiom. They have me wrapped around their little paws, ready to do their bidding at a moment’s meow. Most of the time, though, they just sit there. And watch me. As I cook, exercise, study, plan my next trip… quite like this blog, they chronicle my goings-on and on occasion, are the audience for my think-out-loud musings.
