And now, the latest in cat news.
Let’s visit Gawker to read the story how 1,000 Chinese cats were stolen by cat traffickers in Northeast China, but were rescued after their owners found one another on the internet and collaborated with local law enforcement. All those cats got back home. A happy ending indeed.
Cat trafficking? Really? I guess that does go on in China. It’s true. I actually do learn something new every day. Click here to get to Gawker.
Now I’m sharing this story because. . .
- I find it kind of interesting.
- I like cats.
- I wanted to put up that cute cat gif.
You don’t have to pick the reason why I’m sharing the story. It’s all three of the above.
See you back here on Thursday.

I think I’ve said this here before, but there’s a Christmas tree in the lobby of my building and I think I’m going to consider this my Christmas tree this year. The reality is I haven’t put up a tree in a long time.
Back when I was still putting up Christmas trees—and this was when I was living in Clifton and my son was still living with me—I had cats. Dorey was the older cat and then there was Phoebe.
Cats and Christmas trees: I kind of remember Phoebe messing around with it, but Dorey? No, not so much. Maybe it was because he was older.
My son has cats—so does my daughter. My son’s cats love to climb up in the tree. So far, they haven’t knocked it down and it’s funny to watch them be up in it. My daughter’s cats are beautiful but a bit wild. I don’t think she and her husband are even going to make the attempt to put a tree up this year.
Cats in Christmas trees are funny I think. Of course, I’m not the one having to clean up the Christmas tree mess. All I have to do is watch a two and a half minute video.
When my son and his girlfriend got back from New York, I said goodbye to Jello and Dee and went back to my apartment. Since that visit, I’ve been thinking again about getting another cat.
