I cared for several friends' kitties before getting one of my own (actually, the catsitting helped me realize I was ready for one of my own!). My cat experiences have taught me many things, both about cats and about myself. And today I figured, why not share these pearls of wisdom on my blog? This post is labeled #1 because it's the first in the series, but the memories themselves are in no particular order. I'm just posting whatever comes to mind.
So anyway. Birch taught me that I can't stand it when my lips and nostrils are wet. How did a cat teach me this? Because I never noticed my compulsive habit of drying off my mouth and nose first thing out of the shower...until I started living with a fluffy cat who likes to sleep on towels.
Hey, I never said these lessons would be useful. I only said that they happened. :D
