Louie the cat lives in our fair state and he has TEN families that love and care for him.
I had a friend who called our dogs and cats (and birds, and fish, and lizards etc) “love” beasts, because they often bring out the best in us. Louie brings out the best in his neighborhood.
One of Louie’s “families” worried about him during Irma, and contacted neighbors even though they were back home in Illinois. Frankly, I would have preferred to be with them.
There are three strays on my street, but only one is as friendly as Louie. We feed them, make sure they have shelter in bad weather and get to the vet if they are injured or sick.
