And when I say before, I mean Before. Like, waaaaaaaaaaaaaay before.
She got Fluffy, the lovely black-and-white girl you see above,
when she was about four years old. By way of telling you how long ago
that was, I will say that Eisenhower was still in his first term. Fluffy was mostly
an outside kitty, though in her later years, the Human's mother
relented and Fluffy spent more time inside. She was a hissy old thing, as likely
to nip at you as purr, but she was very fond of the Human. I think having her
was good preparation for getting me just about 50 years later.
