A few years ago, we went to visit my brother for a week just after Christmas. A student of mine took care of our animals while we were away. When we returned, we had more cats than when we left! There were stray cats at her apartment complex, and she brought them to our house. One of them was Vega, an elegant orange cat with beautiful markings. Vega seemed to feel ill at ease for quite some time, as if she knew she hadn’t really been invited, but has now relaxed and acts as if she owns the place and graciously allows us to stay.
