Yep.  We loves 'em cuz they're there.  Hemi hisses at me when I come around
a corner too fast & startle her.  Princess eats and sleeps all day.  Will is
afraid of his shadow.  But as they are all "rehabilitated ferals" I figure,
Who Knows what trouble they've seen.  And I feel better seeing Hemi sleeping
in the shade in the yard, or Princess curled up in her bed on the couch, or
the lump of Will under the covers on my bed.  They may be crazy, but they
are safe and sound an provide good company and a few laughs!

Hey Lee,  You gave me a much needed laugh this morning, with your cat names.
Among my crew is a "Fat Bastard" who has been with us for 8 years now. The
thanks I get for rescuing him is getting bitten when I try to even briefly
pet him.  He is a miserable cat who bolts his food and then shoves his fat
face in the other cats food bowls forcing them to run for their lives.  I
keep him because I'm too tender hearted to get rid of him, but oh how I'd
love to find him a nice barn home.
