That Autistic Cat

We've got a cat that Milady has decided is autistic.  Milady has long experience as a registered nurse in the field of developmental disability and she thinks it's karma that her animals have developmental disabilities.  She's convinced that the dawg is mildly retarded, and the cat is autistic.  The cat doesn't like human contact, preferring to hide under the deck when strangers are about, and only comes out when Milady and I are around.  Of course, she's been "fixed", so there is no danger of kittens.

The cat likes to drink out of the pool.  I managed to snap a photo of her earlier this week.

That's the end of the pool where the fresh water flows from the pump, and cats like flowing water, so that's where she drinks.  After I snapped this photo, she did her trick to get her fresh water.

If someone bumped her in the butt, that would be a terrible tragedy, but she won't let anyone et that close to her.  She's a strange cat, but we like having her around.  She keeps the mice nervous.

I THINK IT IS GREAT THAT YOU TAKE CARE OF THE AUTISTIC CAT. THEY ARE LOVING PETS AND NEED TO HAVE HUMAN GUIDANCE AND FRIENDS. I NEVER HAD A CAT UNTIL I WAS MARRIED THE FIRST TIME BACK IN 1967. THEY DO MAKE GREAT PETS AND ARE FUN TO HAVE AROUND AS LONG AS YOU TREAT THEM WELL.THE ONE I HAVE NOW ALSO WAS A GIFT FROM MY GIRLFRIEND AND THIS CAT LOVES TO ROME THE DESERT HERE IN TUCSON. SHE IS A GREAT HUNTER AND HAS BROUGHT US GIFTS FROM HER HUNTS INCLUDING ONE FULLY GROWN RABBIT, AND ONE SMALL RATTLESNAKE. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE SEEN THAT CATCH ALONG WITH VARIOUS OTHER DESERT CREATURES. SHE IS ALWAYS NEAR TO WHERE WE ARE WHEN SHE IS NOT OUTSIDE, SHE HAS HER OWN PET DOOR AND SHE COMES AND GOES AS SHE PLEASES. REGARDS FROM TUCSON, JOHN LINZINMEIR. LINZINMEIR98@COX.NET / 520.271.1608
