And from me, a serene Christmas or other holiday, and a New Year 2017 filled with more good things than you thought possible. This is my wish for everyone who (as a friend puts it) thinks here.

Such a sweet, sweet story of a kind, gentle, thoughtful man, who was found by a cat !
I've known such cats as Greta, and I'm so glad that she picked a loving home to abide in/at. She picked well !! My Russian Blue agrees, I see.

I've had in my home, cats, dogs, lizards, squirrels, rabbits, birds, snakes, a tarantula spider, fish, turtles, a baby possum, at my house at one time or another, over the years. Each one of them, has, or had, a story to tell, and I've been enriched by each of them. I truly can't imagine a life w/o animals. They are a lot more truthful than humans, in some cases, I've found.

Very Best wishes to all, who stop here for a spell, and write their thoughts here.
Merry Happy and Bright!! and a Blessed New Year to all!!

A Wonderful post, Joanne, Thank you!!

B52D perfectly describes the process I’ve gone through with the vast majority of the cats that have adopted me over the past 40 odd years. Younger feral cats and strays accepted me quicker, one or two old feral cats resisted the temptation of stroking and cuddling until a few weeks before they died. But I’ve also had old strays get in through the cat flap for the first time, notice me sitting in my chair, jump on my lap and demanding to be stroked. They had come home.

So good to read that Greta has found a new home too as a Christmas story. It represents the Cristmas spirit so well. Thank you for posting it, Joanne.
