Can you stand one more post about my new cat? I promise, she will not be a weekly topic on Odds n Bods. It's just that she brings so much joy and I just feel the need to share. There is no such thing as too much joy, is there?

She definitely likes to snuggle, and to curl up in my lap. She will get in my lap while I'm at my desk, but usually doesn't stay. When I'm on the sofa, she will curl up and stay as long as I sit still. She smells Tashiko, but seems at ease that another cat lived here, but has moved on. She tosses her wee mousy then chases it, rolls in cat nip, and always comes to whatever room I'm in for pets and naps. Being basically white, she prefers to nap on dark quilts rather than light ones. Isn't she special?

I alluded to the possibility last week of changing her name from Miss Kitty to something more fitting the House of Frog and Dragon. And then I remembered—my favorite radio and then television show growing up was Gunsmoke. Those of you of an age may remember the main characters—Marshall Matt Dillon (William Conrad on radio, James Arness on tv), Miss Kitty (Amanda Blake on the tube), Doc Adams (Milburn Stone on the tube), and the deputy, Chester B. Goode (Dennis Weaver on the tube). When Miss Kitty ran the Longbranch Saloon, she had red hair. My Miss Kitty is white with gray, but I figure it's only fitting she spend her retirement years in the Good household, don't you? So, she remains Miss Kitty. As full of spirit and self-confidence as the red-headed saloon keeper.
