Love Is…

… letting your kitty outside – even though you worry about cars and dogs and fisher cats – because you know it makes her happy.

We’ve been letting Kes venture outside the last few days.  So far, her trips have been short – an hour or so at a time – and she’s always come bounding back when we call for her.  That doesn’t mean I don’t worry like a mother when she’s out, though, and it doesn’t mean I don’t wish we had GPS for cats (I’d buy that shit in a HEARTBEAT).

The kittens have been out once or twice, too, but only under the close supervision of humans.  None of us is ready to let the kittens out on their own, and while they’ll stand at the window watching Kes walk into the yard, they don’t spend their time pining by the doors, so I’m not as motivated to let them wander as I am to give Kes some freedom; she clearly wants it.

Election Day, 2014

I voted today.

In fact, I was the first person in line at my polling place.

What’s more, I made such a big deal about how excited I was about being there and voting that when I put my ballot into the machine, the man who was monitoring the thing pointed to the little “1” on the screen, smiled at me, and said, “See that? That’s YOU!”
