The great dog rescue adventure leads to the great cat conundrum. While backing out of the courtyard to return the rental car used in the canine escapade, my neighbor Patricia approaches, carrying a small cat. “Whose cat is that?” I ask. Turns out she’s a pregnant stray, whom Patricia had finally lured inside. She puts the little cat in my arms, and my heart goes out to her. I want to keep her. Would my old dog be amenable to a little cat sister? She’s an inveterate cat chaser, and I don’t want to make either unhappy. What to do?
