This winter McCombs Manor hosted a temporary resident for about three months. Miss Sassy was a beautiful tiger striped, golden eyed, long haired cat with a peaceful disposition and affectionate nature. We offered to care for her while her “parents” were Outside, and I don’t think I’ve ever fallen in four footed love so fast in my life.
It only took about two days to figure out the Sassy’s routine, which we soon realized couldn’t vary much, especially dinner time, or we’d hear about it. She was a very vocal cat, and liked to remind us often how intelligent and clever she was, especially when she was staring intently out the sliding glass door, a routine we began to call Sassy’s Bunny Vision. We quickly learned the difference between her contented chirps and demanding meows and soft pleas for more back scratches. She never fussed when we left the house, but when we returned, there was at least an hour of penance to pay in the form of lap time cuddles and furry faced commentary.
