This is my lovely cat, Sage, who has been my companion for almost 10 years. Yes, I know, she looks pretty good for her age. Below is a picture of her walking very tentively on the grass.

I picked her up from the SPCA, apparently a stray...but I just don't believe it. You see, she is VERY domestic, and your classic "scaredy cat," a quivering puss who will run at the slightest noise. But as you can see from the pictures, I can occasionally get her outside. She never goes very far, and I've never had to worry about her leaving the yard. However, if I'm outside gardening, she'll act brave and do some exploring in the bushes.

Other things to know about Sage: as her name suggests, she is the gentlest cat that you will meet. Even if she is annoyed with you, although she might swat at you, she'll never use her claws. She has such a tiny little mew, that initially I thought she had something wrong with her voice. But I have since learned that she can be pretty persistant if she wants something...namely food.

Things she likes best: eating, sleeping, having her belly rubbed and a good cuddle. Who wouldn't like that?

I missed this post for some reason.
Sage is so adorable, I'd forgot about her little sweet meow. Give her a scratch for me!

Oops, there I go sounding like a hillbilly again - I meant to say "forgotTEN".

Not a problem...knew what you meant, and that's what's important.
