Mary Louise ~
Mary Louise, 3rd in the chain of command of the' Cornpone Gang of 4' had a visit to the vet yesterday. She had an eye problem that was not about to go away until money was spent.. I don't know why I wasn't a vet instead of an artist!!But an eye infection is nothing to leave go , and she's had it for quite some time...
None of my cats ever go out for their own safety and the safety of harmless critters, like birds. It's a known fact an outdoor cat will live to be around 6 years, and indoor cat about 16. Mary Louise is 8 now ..who really knows? as she was left on my property when I lived in a very wooded 3 acres about 5 years ago.. The perfect area for people with no heart to dump their unwanted cat.!
It's the only way I've ever gotten a cat.. They come to me.. I don't look for them,
I've never known what its been like to not live in a house with out one, two or four and I liked it that way. But I think my career of saving animals is coming to an end.. I have done my 'tour of duty' for about 60+ years, I'm retiring .. where's my gold watch? BJ
