Dona Nobis Pacem



"We cannot change the past, but we can change our attitude toward it. Uproot guilt and plant forgiveness. Tear out arrogance and seed humility. Exchange love for hate -- thereby making the present comfortable and the future promising."

~ Maya Angelou

Marilyn, Mickey is the luckiest cat in the world. If for some reason it doesn't work out with him, please keep your old man-cat friend, Quasi, in mind. I'm glad you did well with the dental work. The last time I had my teeth cleaned, I guilt-tripped my humans about it for a solid week.

Amen to that quotation. I'm sorry you had sore teeths, I didn't know coz I'm all behind (again and as usual!) but I'm glad the procedure went well and I'm sure you will be all better and comfy again very soon:) xxx
