Cat Appeal


Ace trombone player Don Fairley posted this sad, emotional, item on Facebook:
I have a dilemma. Due to my overall health problems, I am soon to be moving to an assisted living home in North Gosforth. Unfortunately, There is a 'no pets' ruling which means that I cannot take my beloved cat, Mitzi, with me. I must, therefore, find a good home for her. She is mature at around 10 years old, beautifully well behaved and very easy to live with. She has been a delightful companion for over 9 years, in excellent health while in my care. Is there anyone who is looking for a wonderful mature pet to love and cherish?
If you know of anyone suitable, please leave a message. Thank you.

Don, your trombone skills are undisputed but this puts you above JJ, Kai, Teagarden and any other slideman in the world as a person.
So, you cats out there please help Don find a home for Mitzi.
Lance (and Daphne).
PS: Daphne says, "You ain't bringing none of your fancy she-cats into my house."
