RIP, Fritz.

I want to thank everyone for the condolences, You people are wonderfully caring.
When we were going through the boxes of photos at my dad's I came across this.  This is Casey, gone for many years now.  She was incredibly smart, and raised a litter of kittens once when their mother was killed.  She was a Gordon Setter, lived to be 17 I believe.  If I ever come across another one available for adoption, it will come home with me.

Bottom of page one, but wanted to share something that happened today at work.

I work as a mailman.. er, person.. er, I deliver normal mail for a living. Because I've been on the same route for over two years, I know many of the people and pets. In the last few months, a few of the indoor/outdoor cats on my route have taken to greeting me as I walk past their home and will walk with me on the part of my route that falls within their territory.

Today, one took it a bit further.

On my route, there is a house with a legally blind lady. She is usually very nice, has a wonderful yellow lab as a guide dog, and has an adorable cat who is blind in one eye. That cat decided I was another slave today: he mewed and mewed, then Mrowed (yes, loudly enough to earn that capitalization!) until I followed him back to his house and rang the doorbell. When his human answered the door I got to explain, in slightly broken Dutch, that her cat hijacked me to get the door open. She thought that it hilarious and thanked me for acting as a kitty delivery person, LOL!

It really cracks me up when I see others call their cats 'Heathens'.  Louie and Hermie became the heathens the day they arrived in my house at the age of 6 weeks.  I know it is what Ellie called them.  And still calls them that.  Of course she puts a few dirty words in front of that.....

Heathen number one:  Louie

jso2897: "He has a soft spot for rescue animals," she said. "I think it's an amazing thing, a sacrifice like this."

Semantic question - why do we refer to the character attribute of compassion as a "soft spot", as if it were some sort of weakness?


It is a testament to the sad state of humanity that an act of kindness is not just considered by some to be a weakness, but it is also news worthy when it happens. Compassion, empathy, right action for the good of the wider society, including its animal companions/partners - that should be the default position for any human. From my own experiences with small kids, it IS the default position for most of them. They're either budding little psychos right out of the womb, which is exceedingly rare from what I've seen, or they're taught to be something other than compassionate and empathetic over time. It's a cultural problem at its core (IMO, but what do I know? Not a whole lot, when it comes right down to it.) I'm just glad that good nature and tender heart is still around at all, even as I am sad it's a news worthy event due to its rarity.

Yeah, well, I think we've got it backwards. I think our "soft spots" are where our true strengths lie.

SilverStag, So Regret to hear your beloved Fritz has left you. He was quite handsome.
NoSoNiceBunny, CSB!  Cept mayhap that's CSS?
Plus numerous comments that kind, generous, etc behaviour is weak. Wrong-o. No longer recall who 'twas recommended, Be Assertive Not Aggressive.
Another Truly Cute, both kittehs, no mouse musicians. But may have solution for These Challenges At Last -- see if I can find worthy still meanwhile --

The dude pictured above wants to know why Raturday is not widely observed.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: Compassion, empathy, right action for the good of the wider society, including its animal companions/partners - that should be the default position for any human.


Unfortunately, compassionate and empathetic people are easy to exploit. And it's easy for compassionate people to burn out if their efforts are never appreciated or returned. So, another picture of a cat:
