City Mouse, Country Mouse

Or in the feline lexicon: Urban Cat, Hillbilly Cat. This is one of Carla's parents' cats, Raeford, who lives on their farm. He was named after the poultry plant where Carla's brother rescued him, comatose, from underneath some pallets in a freezer. He was carried there inadvertently when a forklift moved some pallets from outdoors. Unfortunately, his littermates didn't survive. Raeford was a lucky kitten.

He is 15 now. Sometimes I feel sorry for him because he doesn't own a computer or have a blog. Other times, I think maybe there's something to be said for the simple life.
