By Matthew's Mom
We have three dogs and one and a half cats. OK--the half cat is Munchkin...a very unfriendly cat that used to belong to Matthew's girlfriend. Matthew asked if Munchkin could stay with us for two weeks while his girlfriend and her mother moved to a new home. That was seven years ago.
Munchkin doesn't like anyone--but she did like Matthew. She was an inside cat until last July--when she bolted out the front door and disappeared for a month. I can't say that I was sad that she left--I was a little annoyed that I had to take care of her. She came back a month after she left and has been living on our porch ever since. In the winter I put a little "house" out there for her, with blankets so she'd stay warm. I don't like the darn cat but didn't want her to freeze to death.
