Quote Of The Week
I’ve met many irresponsible people in my life
But never an irresponsible cat.
Rita Mae Brown
Magellan – The Sentry
Do you have someone who watches over your home?
Perhaps you have a dog…
A home security system…
Or even an eagle-eyed neighbor…
In our home, we are blessed with Magellan,
Our self-appointed Sentry and Neighborhood Watch Cat!
Maine Coon Cats are natural-born guardians
Who bond very closely with their families,
Have a keen sense of territory,
And are naturally protective of those that they love!
They will watch over you while you sleep
(Often positioning themselves between you and the doorway) !
The will lay where they can guard doors and windows –
And alert you to the slightest change in your environment!
Maine Coons have a keen sense of time.
In our home, my cats have a sense of everyone’s schedule and –
When someone is out longer than they should be –
They will sit by the doors and windows awaiting their arrival
Until all household humans are present and accounted for!
Today’s photo shows The Sentry in action.
He is guarding the stairs –
Making sure no one passes by while his upstairs people sleep –
While making sure the downstairs people stay safe!

Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson
As we approach the anniversary of 9/11, I wanted to share the amazing story of two World Trade Center survivors with you – Michael Hingson, a man who was born blind, and his guide dog Roselle, who guided him to safety that day.
Michael tells their story in his wonderful book Thunder Dog.
