Last month, my roommate went to a conference in
. She then stayed there for a few extra days as
vacation. While she was gone, I took
care of her cats, Tigger & Blacky. San Antonio
Last week, she gave me a gift as a “thank you” for cat sitting: an adorable salt and pepper shaker set that she picked up at Shay Station in
. Cadillac, Michigan
Aren’t they cute cute cute!? The coolest thing is that they have magnets on the side so they click smartly together! Of course I felt compelled to come up with names for these adorable sheepy shakers. It didn’t take long. They reminded me strongly of two cats that I once had, Bonnie & Clyde.
I got Clyde first, when I was a student in
. Tucson Clyde was
what you might call “a pill”. As a
kitten he seemed to take glee in being bad.
I am happy to report that he did mellow as he aged. I miss Clyde
Later, when I was working in
adopted Bonnie. She was already an adult
