Evolutionist and cat person. I like dogs, too, and get along with the neighborhood dogs quite well, but I like to garden so owning one is out of the question.
Current household: The Hoover, named for her eating habits, is fourteen now and frail but still the bane of field mice and voles, and Stinky, named for his litter box habits, who's nine and loves to ride on your shoulders. My wife convinced him he was human at an early age.
We lost a 20-year-old calico two years ago and my dear Lowell last year at 15. No new additions until Hoover joins them in the garden.
