    Nothing needs to be said, except Michael has a gift for exposing human nature mirrored in his neighborhood cats IMNSHO. ?
    If anyone ever gathers together a book titled The Best of Michael Newnham, i want a copy!

  2. Michael says:

    Thank you, Em.
    It would be a very short book… 🙂

  3. Owen says:

    Michael, the application you’ve made rings very true. We have known friends like this, and we have spent years coaxing them back towards a place where they can accept love again.
    Keep at it. In her own time, I think she’ll come around.

  4. Michael says:


    It’s as important that I keep trying as it is she responds someday…

  5. Owen says:

    And someday soon I do want to pick up a copy of “Make your own application”.
    It doesn’t look like a “very short book”, either….. ?

  7. Michael says:

    Thank you, Paige. 🙂

  8. Em says:

    i hope that the story of this cat continues… perhaps her name is Hope?

  9. Linnea says:

    Yes, beautiful…I like Em’s name, Hope…perhaps Duchess Hope 😉

  10. Captain Kevin says:

    Beautifully penned, Michael! So packed with experience and truth.

    I think maybe Em and Linnea are on to something. 😉

  11. Linnea says:

    CK… you are a gentleman and a scholar 🙂

    I don’t know if Michael is the apostle to the cats or just a cat whisperer, but apparently he has a case of the cat scratch fever.

    May you have 9 lives and a fancy feast my friend.

  13. Owen says:


    “just” a cat whisperer? I suspect the kitties think more highly of Michael’s qualifications…. ?

    My Grandpa always said, never trust anyone that doesn’t care for animals. He always had two dogs at home, two dogs at the yard. You couldn’t count the number of stray cats he fed. He bought six gallons of milk and bags of kittel every week.
