Home Spun comic strip #312
I figured I should clarify that this set of strips is based on events from some years ago. Even Toaster is based on a few cats who are with us now in spirit only. I've toyed with the idea of adding those memories to the strip, but they are still a bit fresh in our minds. Between illness and old age, we lost five cats in four years.
The only new kitten we have right was brought to us by my dad a few months ago, with the hope that we would find her a home. She is almost a year old now. We're trying, but even our shelter contact has confirmed that people aren't adopting lately. The economy has caused many to give up beloved pets. That is a shame. We are doing OK right now, so I would rather let our latest guest stay a little longer. Maybe I'll eat less to make up for the extra cat food and lose a few pounds!
