Never Say Never Cat

We’re pleased as punch to announce the winner of our Zen Art Giveaway is Bobbie C. Congratulations! Look for an email from Layla Morgan Wilde. Normally, we have giveaway on Wednesday but because it’s the first anniversary Cat Wisdom 101 on Friday, we’ll announce our big, beautiful giveaway then!

In the meantime, I have some crazy cat news. It’s official: I come from a crazy cat people family. My mom’s last kitty died just over a week ago. I blogged about it here thinking at age 87 it would be her last cat, but no. Never say never.

Anyone who has met me knows I’m a bit of a firecracker. The apple does not fall far from the fiery tree. In my family, we march to the beat of many different drummers. My mother decided against all logic and family protestations to adopt a seven-year-old neglected cat from a neighbor in a drama worthy of Desperate Housewives. All I’ll say at this point is it’s juicy fodder for a memoir. When it comes to cats, never say never.

  1. Hi Layla,

    Congratulations to the winner of the Zen Art giveaway.

    “The last cat” is a tough one. I’ve heard lots of people say, “This is the last cat I’m going to have. After this, no more.” I’ve heard the same from dog parents.

    But when it actually comes down to it, most people get another cat!…and another, and another.

    How can a cat lover resist. Cats are a fundamental family unit. Without them, the family feels entirely incomplete and the house feels empty and dead.

    Good news is that there never needs to be a last cat. With a living Will, you can add a pet provision. Then if you die before your cat does, the cat will be taken care of.

    No worries…well, less worries anyway.

    We is sooooo happy for the kitty and your Mom.
    And we can’t wait to hear every juicy detail.


  4. Oh I think it’s wonderful that your mom adopted a new kitty! It’s sad to hear the kitty was neglected, but the kitty will be so happy with new loving family 🙂

  5. Oh I think it’s lovely that your Mom has a new cat companion – and for it to be an older cat who’s looking for some love – that’s just purrfect. Companions are wonderful at any age!!
