Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.
~Henry Van Dyke

I wanted to choose a quote about coming home to honor our newest member of our furry family. Since Tuesday we had a most adorable black and white Tuxedo stray cat trying to move in through our red back door. Wednesday night we resisted, but Thursday day we couldn't resist any longer. He just acted like he knew this was his home. So we moved him into a large wire dog kennel with all the amenities, until Friday's vet check. He ate and ate and then curled up in a ball and slept abd slept. Finally he had a full belly and was safe and warm. My husband named him Who. The rest of our menagerie has welcomed him, some with more opened arms than others, but there is a sense of peasce and that we did the right thing. Who has found his forever home and his heart can rest now.
