Ditto. My thoughts are with you and the Chairman.

Thank you for the kind thoughts, but the Chairman has been gone for over a month now, so I have given up hope. I am currently looking for a new cat to adopt. I am currently reading Natsume Sōseki - I Am a Cat.

A good read also is Toi Mon Chat.

Is that available in English?

Not sure. It's mostly pictures of the author's cat.

There's also Peter Gethers' books about Norton: The Cat Who Went to Paris, A Cat Abroad, and a third one whose name I forget...

Do Cats Go to Heaven?

A cat dies and goes to Heaven. God meets him at the gate and says, "You have been a good cat all of these years. Anything you desire is yours, all you have to do is ask."

The cat says, "Well, I lived all my life with a poor family on a farm and had to sleep on hardwood floors."

God says, "Say no more." And instantly, a fluffy pillow appears.

A few days later, 6 mice are killed in a tragic accident and they go to Heaven. God meets them at the gate with the same offer that He made the cat. The mice said, "All our lives we've had to run. Cats, dogs and even women with brooms have chased us. If we could only have a pair of roller skates, we wouldn't have to run anymore."

God says, "Say no more." And instantly, each mouse is fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny roller skates.

About a week later, God decides to check and see how the cat is doing. The cat is sound asleep on his new pillow. God gently wakes him and asks, "How are you doing? Are you happy here?"

The cat yawns and stretches and says, "Oh, I've never been happier in my life. And those Meals on Wheels you've been sending over are the best!"

My new cat, Paisley. She's a five-year-old pedigreed Ragdoll. I found her on Craigslist; a couple was moving away and I got her for free.

Awwww...

Beautiful eyes.

Are you going to give her a Maoist moniker?

I can't think of a good one for a female, so I named her Paisley, which is relevant to my job and hobby.

I love ragdoll cats! Since it was on Craigslist, was she free?
She's going to be such a decadent pet/companion to have around!

A beautiful raggie you have there. Glad to see you have a new cat. I think I might have posted this before, but here is a picture of Maximus, our purebred raggie. I am 6 ft and he will stand up on his hind legs and put his paws to just below my ribcage, looking for some petting.

Does your cat "trill"? Max will give the most melodious trills when he is happy and getting petted.

I have a Mainecoon, but he's a mix. He, however, has many behavioral characteristics of Mainecoons, like chirpy trills. I love it.

Ragdolls and Mainecoons look very similar.

Don't forget Norwegian Forest cats too. I think those are the three biggest breeds of cats, with Raggies being the biggest, and they all have some similar features, such as their tails. We have a 12# mutt tabby and Max absolutely dwarfs her. We knew we were going to have a big cat when we picked him out, but we did not expect 3 ft from tip of his nose to base, (base mind you, not tip!) of his tail nor 23-4 # of solid muscle. He's actually lean and flat bellied under all that fur. I think I might hurt my back lifting him if middle age spread ever sets in for him!

Oh my! That's a large cat. Is he a lynx point? Paisley is quite small, probably half that size. Yes, she trills quite a bit. She has the best personality of any cat that I've met.
