    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… ๐Ÿ™‚

  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….. ?

    Be still my heart. This is incredibly beautiful… Thank you..

  7. Michael says:

    Thank you, Paige. ๐Ÿ™‚

  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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Captain Kevin says:

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

    I think maybe Em and Linnea are on to something. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Linnea says:

    CK… you are a gentleman and a scholar ๐Ÿ™‚

    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 doesnโ€™t care for animals. He always had two dogs at home, two dogs at the yard. You couldnโ€™t count the number of stray cats he fed. He bought six gallons of milk and bags of kittel every week.
