Our barn cat Tiger had a friend we named Truman after Truman Capote. This cat was intelligent and sensitive. We think he was a writer in one of his former nine lives.

When I was a teenager, I desperately wanted a cat for a pet. So when a little tiger-striped cat moved into our new barn, I was thrilled. She knew how to catch mice and stay clear of horses' hooves.
