I notice that your little friend leans to one side. Does he perhaps have one
leg shorter than the other? How sad, and yet how inspiring that you would
select as a secret friend someone with a handicap.

Rei, that's a great cat picture.

All this fuzzy talk about the cats and dogs who share your lives through
sickness and health, sorrow and joy; it's wonderful, but it makes me so
sad. And when I'm sad I want to lash out at people. I can't help myself.
As much as I've tried, I just can't take a liking to our little furry
friends. Maybe I shouldn't say this because you people might laugh at
me, but when I was a child in grammar school, I would cry after
show-and-tell because everybody would pet and scratch the little
hamsters, kittens, and opossums that were brought in, but nobody would
scratch my head. It made me sad, so I used to pinch the little hamsters
on the nose so they couldn't breath. I don't want anyone to feel sorry
for me, because everything is going to change. I have a secret friend.
I've had him for a awhile, but I didn't want to tell anyone because I
thought people might laugh. When I'm sad he lies next to me and I
scratch his little head. I love that he needs me. He's so much better
than a dog or cat or hamster. He's a real friend who needs me as much as
I need him. My friends on the LUG are the first to meet him:
