We have three cats. Purrcy, Wilson, aka Wee Willie, and Elvis. Two of them have special diets. Purrcy is overweight, and Elvis has Kidney disease. We purchased three “chip” cat dishes. Each of the boys have computer chips embedded on them. The bowls have been set up so only the correct “chipped” cat can open the door. The cat enters his neck under the little arch and the door opens only for him. Therefore Purrcy can’t cheat and eat all his food and his brothers also. And Elvis gets his special kidney food and Willie gets normal cat food.

But they CHEAT! Elvis will open his door and when he walks away Purrcy will quickly enter and eat the rest of his food. They have conspired against us by using kitty team work. Now I have to stand by and referee meal time so everyone gets only his food.


A Brackish Death

Their relationship fell apart after three months in the wilderness. She missed the city life. He loved nature and hated the hustle and bustle of the city. The final fight was nasty. More violent than he expected. She put up quite a fight. When she left the city she told her friends she would never return. She was correct.

The brackish waters off the Kenai Fjords in remote Alaska provided the perfect place to dispose of her body.

He watched the final bubbles from her last breaths disappear beneath the water. Her replacement would be difficult to find. But not impossible. He had work to begin his search.

RDP Monday….Brackish.

Fear For Your Life

I had a late departure on my last day in Vietnam. My tour guide offered to take me around Ho Chi Minh City. Talk about fear. On several occasions I felt like we were going to crash because of all the cluster of motorcycles and the crowed crossings. Nobody wanted to yield the right of way.
