No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"Our will and fates do so contrary run that our devices still are overthrown; our thoughts are ours, their ends none of our own." - William Shakespeare

I awaken to bird song. This is a nice way to wake up. I also have Bailey purring in my ear as he rubs my face with his nose. Then the little rough tough comes out and licks my nose, oooh, just like sandpaper.

Bailey is ready for me to get up. He wants me to take care of him. Especially, he wants his breakfast. I would say that his litter box comes next. After that he has no need of me until he wants to sleep in my lap. That kid has to have his lap time.

When I think of his destiny, it could have gone two ways:

1. He could have been adopted by another family, or
2. He could have been euthanized.

In my mind that is grim thinking. I am glad we found him and brought his home. He was and is worth every penny we have spent on him.

Although Max was not pleased to have a little brother, he did have another feline to play with and they did play. I also believe that Bailey was comfort when Max became ill last summer when we were homeless. I believe those nights in the truck they had each other and could curl up and stay warm. I do not know if cats worry but knowing they had each other for company while we were at the shelter must have given them comfort. At least that is what I want to believe.

Now Bailey is an only child. I believe he likes it.

We saw on the television the other night an ad for Woods Humane Society that they were waiving the adoption fees for the month of September. Michael's ears picked up at that and saw a cat he would like to have.

The only four problems I see:

1. I do not believe we can have another cat here, and
2. I do not know that we could afford another cat, and
3. I do not know that I could keep up with two cats, and
4. Where would we put the other litter box?

If we did get another cat, Michael would have to take over the care of that cat.

No, I think Bailey's destiny is to be with us and enjoy his life as an only cat. Another cat maybe would work out. But, we do play with Bailey and he is quite capable of playing by himself. Plus, he receives our undivided attention. I know he likes that.

Michael got a call from the person who handles the community watch program. She outlined what she needed to be able to assist us to keep an eye on what is going on in our "little barrio." Michael made up a sign up sheet to find out who wants to be involved, their phone number and a time they would be available. We put ourselves down and then handed off the form to Mr. T. He was going to go to the neighbors he knows in our area to see if they want to participate. I hope we have a consensus and this meeting can take place. We definitely do not want to have the same experience again.
