I thought this story was just incredible.  When you see the photos of this cat when she was rescued, the injuries sustained are mind boggling.  How did this cat above all odds survive?  In my opinion, I think the cat sensed love and safety from the little girl and her Family.  This cat knew the Family was trying to help ease her pain, nourish her with food and help heal her injuries.  I love stories and photos like this because they illustrate humanity  and how much we really don’t know regarding feline intelligence.  I suspect there’s much more than meets the eye.


The Origin of November

The etymology of our eleventh month November, however, speaks little to its role in the course of the year.
