My Google Calendar is set up with the birthdays of my family members and friends. Today I got an e-mail reminding me that if this guy were still around, he'd be having a birthday today.
I miss him, and all the cats we've had. Maybe I just miss cats in general. Once in awhile I see a black and white cat playing or stalking something in the field in front of our house. But I don't know him personally. I beginning to think that either I'm going to have to get a cat soon or I'm going to have to try to convince someone I know well to get one.
Anyway, here's to my good old cat, Lumby. Miss you, boy. You were sure a tolerant pet, even as a kitten. :)
