OC Gets to Visit the Office

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Gwen Fowler Real Estate, Inc 10307

In 2007 we found a kitten at the office.  We had just come home after visiting my daughter when she had twins.  The date will forever be in our minds.  When we went by the office on our way home, we spotted a tiny kitten in the woods beside the office.

Henry sat on a rock for three days talking to her, trying to get her to come to him.  He loves cats, and it was a sure gift that she had chosen us to be her future family. After we caught her, took her to the vet, she became the official office cat: OC-Spot- Holstein-Monday.  A lot of names for a bit of cat.

Tonight, because of snow, she is back at the office for a visit; she remembered her favorite chair and has made herself at home. When we take her to the vet, he tells us that she is an old cat and will not be around forever.  She is just 14, and we plan to have her for many more years...even when we have to camp at the office because the power is out at home and she needs to be warm.

With no kids at home, she is our reason to get up--to feed her, check her water, make her bed, etc.  She has learned which button turns on the tv so when we are gone for the day she watches her programs.

Seems as though the cat was sent to keep you comfy and to train you for how to beat the cold

Gwen, she is so cute, and my last cat made it to 20.5 years old.  She couldn't hear very good, but such a loveable cat even until the end.  Have fun with her.

Gwen Fowler-864-638-3599 SC * Mountain* Lake*Home - OC is not only independent and adorable, but OC knows when she's welcomed and has a good home. I'm glad she found you and that you took her in to care for her since she was just a kitten. Thank you for giving her a good life, comfort and joy.

Also, congratulations on being a Grandmother for twins! I'm sure the time you spend with them is absolutely wonderful or shall I say DOUBLY WONDERFUL!

I almost can't get things done on the desk.   They LOVE to stand looking at the screen, blocking my view.   This was late yesterday, still nap time.

Just do it has been my teaching point for years.  I get so tired of people researching and talking but not doing anything.  Just do it, you will be finished and moved on to something else before you can research it or talk about it in a group discussion.
