It's been a week of hard topics. Let me introduce someone who doesn't give a bird's tail feather about any of them.
Billie only wants lots of cat food and to be admired. If you are cautious, you can scratch his belly, though your hand might be taken for a toy and treated as a pin cushion. I get to visit Billie many Sundays in the fall because his people watch football on TV and invite their friends. Often Billie comes in to receive homage from the guests.
