Sad, Sad Saturday



Look, I'm just a cat. I live a life of luxury. I don't work. I am well taken care of. I am loved. I write this blog for my own amusement. But I'm not stupid. I know I'm damn lucky to be alive, because I almost died, and somebody saved me.

A person that can only be described as the worst kind of evil shot and killed twenty little kids yesterday, and six adults who tried to protect them, in Connecticut, the state where I was born.

To pretend to be frivolous on a day like this is just wrong.

I'm purring for all the hearts that are broken today.  Will you join me?

Millie - I live a long way away in a country where there are much tighter restrictions on ownership of guns and not many people feel that they have an entitlement to own one. Surely drastically reducing the number of guns in the community would be a sensible step to prevent anything like this happening again?

I can't begin to imagine the anguish that the parents of those children must be feeling.

Oh yeah Millie, we have been purring since yesterday. So sad to read the ages of these kids, six and seven years old.

Thank you, Millie. Newtown is close to us, and we have many friends who live there. This is so, so tragic.
