Fifteen years ago, one of our daughters’ babysitters found a beautiful, long-haired kitten in a dumpster near campus. She wanted to keep the kitten, but her parents wouldn’t let her bring it home for the summer, so we kept it for her. When she returned in the fall, she was living in an apartment that didn’t accept pets. So, the kitten became ours permanently. Sasha turned out to be a quiet, loving cat whose long fur turned her into a mobile dust mop. She’s old now, and much thinner than she used to be, but still has the soulful eyes she had as a kitten popping up from a dumpster looking for a home.
