The Gift of Friendship

There are millions of older Americans who live alone and need someone to love. You may be a son or daughter, a niece or nephew – anyone who wishes you could visit this senior more but just don’t have the time.

For this special person, I hope you’ll consider a Christmas gift of an older cat.  Older cats don’t scratch the furniture, or run around like nuts, or take leaps at the Christmas tree.  Older cats are only good to lie on someone’s lap, to be hugged in the day, and to sleep with “their” person at night.

Chances are they’re already fixed and are used to being around people.  They don’t have to go outside – in fact, they shouldn’t go outside.  Most people who are new to cats are surprised at how easy they are to care for.  Unlike the silly myths, most cats are very affectionate and crave human attention.

So it seems, this could be a perfect match – a senior citizen who needs a friend – and a lonely friend who once lived with a family and is now sitting in a cage at the pound.  Many nursing homes now allow pets – they know how valuable their love is.

The first step is to call the local animal shelter in your city.  Use your imagination! Maybe your senior’s pre-Christmas gifts are presents of cat food, toys, a scratching post, and catnip. Then, at a prearranged, time, you bring the senior to the shelter and see which cat is “right” for her.

C’mon!  Make this a memorable Christmas for someone you love . . . instead of giving one more forgettable trinket.

CAT LOVERS: Here’s the 1st popular Cat story published in America in the early 1800’s. You’ll read why people who are owned by cats love it still:

    A good idea, but check to make sure the person is not allergic to cats first.

    I remember a picture in the back of LIFE magazine that showed several pics of a cat jumping off the 5th floor of a burning bldg. hitting the ground, and running away! FIVE STORIES and not a scratch. It was in that last page picture of the month section. And a fellow I knew tellingme he THREW a cat out of a seventh story window and the cat limped a little but ran away. I was shocked because that person was usually a very caring person and I had to ask him WHY? Why in HELL did you ever THROW a cat out a 7th story window in the first place??

    “Simple!” he replied, “I kept throwing him out the fifth and he kept coming back!”

    And while y’all ponder that remember this is PEARL HARBOR DAY. 70 YEARS LATER AND msn’S FRONT PAGE IS A PICTURE OF SOME SAILORS PICKING OUT THE NAMES OF THEIR BUDDIES WHO DIED ON THE USS ARIZONA. At the Arizona Monument. 70 years later and they are rememberred. Roughly the same amount of civilians murderred just 11 years or so ago in NYC. and nobody wants to be reminded or remember it seems. I just wonder WHY? WHY were they murderred by Saudi Arabians and then we went to war to protect Saudi Arabia? And are STILL embroiled in saving the lives of a religion sworn to destroy us with a damn good start. WHY THEY can pray in the open on our streets and block them but damn a Jew or a Christian who reads a Bible?
