I’ve added a cat to my household. A rescued barn cat!
I was on a writers’ retreat on an old farm in New Brunswick. The cat being fed in the barn and had a bed, but the temperature was 20 to 30 degrees below zero, with a foot of snow on the ground. When I visited her in the barn, she jumped on my lap and purred – and that was it. So after a couple of trips to the vet and a month of food and sleep, she looks much better.
Her name is Muffin, and here are a couple of photos. I feel like my new name should be Travis Keating!
