Getting to know me. Getting to know myself.
So...here goes today's bit about Beverly/Glenn/???
To know more about me, other than that I was an only child, you need to know about me and cats. As a three year old, I had a doll carriage, but I never put dolls in the carriage. I only put kittens in the carriage, and would roll them about endlessly. Dolls were mostly reserved for my more aggressive behaviour - perhaps more typical of boys at a certain age, which I certainly considered myself to be - while cats were like my children. Hmmm. Who knows! My family was very loving with me and they certainly weren't cats that I could perceive. Anyway, my mother told me much later in life that when I was still just three, she decided that the kitten that had survived the doll carriage rides should find a new home, which strangely she thought would happen if she abandoned it on a walk in the park!!! She claimed that while she was in the process of dragging me away from my kitty in the midst of this procedure, that I stopped her and said. "Wait a minute. I have something to say..(still true). You are leaving my kitten behind."
And there you have it, friends. I have never left a kitten behind since. They are another part of my spirit family, along with many of you, my wife, my dearest friends and those who have gone on that I loved. Currently I have three cats, all of whom were rescued and given to me.
There, that's a start.
