Patron Saint of Animals

These "mortal" enemies just can't seem to stay away from each other!

Look! There she is! Can she come inside? Please?
Please? Can I come in? See, Oscar's pouting! He wants me to!! He misses me!

"All creatures, great and small... the Lord God loves them all."

St. Francis of Assisi has been sitting here by the back door ever since Sher gave him to me for the corner of the yard where our other two beloved cats are buried (Erica and Dr. Seuss). How fitting for these small ones that he is "watching over them."

Bitty did eventually go to the garage and didn't continue sitting out there in the cold. (Her fur is layers and layers thick, so I don't think she suffered too much.) Oscar went to bed. All is well.
