A Christmas cat story

This heartwarming tail of cat rescue was sent by reader Diane G.; it’s called “A Christmas Cat” and recently appeared at the Daily Kos.

Read for yourself the tale of Greta, the twice-abandoned but rescued tabby. But then don’t linger on this website: there are presents to open, foods to eat, and, if you’re that sort, Baby Jesuses to worship.

Happy holidays as I’m in the air to Bangalore.

Greta the rescue cat

Oh, and read some of the cat stories in the comments section of this one.

    My ten rescues are looking forward to some ham later today. My raccoons & possum will be surprised though I gave them a feast last night.

      How did you manage to get them all to to be friendly with each other? Or did you? I’ve always been worried that if I took in too many rescues, one or two personalities would clash with the others, and I would have to take some back (which I could never bear). Is there a trick to this?

        No way do they all get along – the trick is to give all of them attention & hope for the best which doesn’t always happen. Cat politics are beyond me. Some mostly keep to themselves, others are buddies and generally litter mates are closest. Feral cats are never the same as home-raised cats.

    OMG. Since you said Baby Jesuses (plural) are you telling me that the is more than one Jesus??? That’s like telling me there is no Santa Claus!! You heartless person! And on Christmas, too. You know wahat the song says “the most magical time of the year.”
