Cat of the Day
Today's Cat of the Day
Dewey the Tabby Cat, the Cat of the Day
Name: Dewey
Age: Thirteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Tabby Cat
Home: La Jolla, California, USA
   Once upon a time there was a cat in the neighborhood and his name was Dewey, at least according to his collar. He lived two doors away. He arrived in our yard. We took him home. Repeatedly. Then one night he managed to find his way onto our roof. He climbed through an open window, jumped into our bed, curled up at the foot. The next day we took him home. Again he appeared - every night - every day.

     Dewey had terrible skin allergies, so extreme we could barely pet him. One day, months later, a neighbor who lived between us and Dewey's parents arrived with a box. Dewey's food, his mattress, his medicines and his medical records were inside. That was in 2003. We never saw Dewey's parents again. Dewey's allergies soon disappeared, too.

     If there ever was a loving family cat it is Dewey. He sits at the door waiting for us to come home, then follows us everywhere. He adores it when our 2 and 5 year old grandchildren visit, never protesting about a tug of his tail - only when he gets closed out of a room. His favorite trick? Jumping onto the vanity and calling to us to turn on on the faucet when he wants water - even though there are bowls all over the house. And yes, he is very handsome, and often quite regal.
