Pets are wonderful -- the 11th thing I learned in 2022

Monet the cat when we
 brought her home as a kitten

Today was the first anniversary of our cat Monet's adoption.
We were singing Happy Weekaversary once a week, with the
superb singing accompaniment of our dog Sally, but today
we sang our first Happy Anniversary.

Pets are a wonderful part of anyone's life.  But for artists they
are especially important, because they force us to take breaks to
feed them, play with them, and spend time with them.  And
they listen.  One of my followers on Instagram said that if you
share secrets with a cat, you're really sharing them with yourself.
And I answered that he clearly didn't have siamese cats. (We
have two, and our dog Sally.) They talk back and comment.

This tiny kitten has grown into a very big cat.  There was a point
in late January this year when both of our cats quit eating, and we
thought we'd lose her. But that worry is completely gone!

Have a loving your life day.
