A bright guy I ain't. Any evidence to the contrary. The way I see it, any kind of bright guy wouldn't have made such a hash of his future, in terms of what he values v. what he does not. Right now I'm doing very well in assorted "does not" categories, but have not made much headway in the "does" categories. We'll leave an in-depth psychological unveiling for another time, a never time.
In the meantime, I've found a stray kitten. Apparently stray in the light of overwhelming indifference, or at least several hours worth of mild indifference, for I was the only one at 6pm, in front of my building of at least a hundred, to at least attempt to figure out if said stray and mewing kitten belonged to anyone. The answer was "no" - at least to the knowledge of security, who had stoically watched said kitten try for three odd hours to make some kind of contact with humans coming home, humans recognized as care givers.
So I brought said kitten inside and am making "lost kitten" flyers. Although judging from the matted hair and general undernourishment, no one is looking. Although some human once knew him, given that he nursed on my fingers and tried to hide inside my shirt sleeve. (I shall resist a dangerous digression on people. And their sense of convenience. Or accessory.)
I may have a new companion for El Gato Perfecto (who will always be first in my heart) provided such an arrangement (or invasion) does not crush her own. And of course, should said kitten (currently cloistered in spare bathroom) prove to be the bearer of any infectious nasties, I will have a much thornier moral dilemma on my hands.
He's adorable, but after my final day in a week of trials, hearings, political maneuverings, office politics, new acquaintances meetings, and, frankly, more stretching than I've been used to as my limited role as legal/social shield, I'd just wanted to go home, meet with friends, and relax. The TLF is soon to leave us for NYC - better pastures for her, at the cost of my one friend in Miami as eclectic as myself.
Now, I have new attentiveness things to weave into my life, such as teaching a small cat to bathe himself. Which I've done before - it's time consuming.
It's not unwelcome, but is unexpected.
Anyway dear readers, I need your help. "said kitten" needs a name, even if he might only be with me shortly. I was thinking of "Prowler" due to his behavior at our meeting and my favorite BS Miami charge - "loitering and prowling." However, any suggestions you have, on or off blog, would be welcome.
Thanks in advance,
