I’m Pondering

Hi everyone. In case you don’t know me, by now, I’m Maverick, and this is my column “Cat Tales.” I like to write about what’s going on with my mom and me, but I also like to teach so I write informative things concerning cats. I think I would make […]

Early Firefighting In The Sault

In the early twentieth century, some of my ancestors were firefighters in the Sault. Going through some old papers, I have found bits and pieces of firefighting history from our area. As with anything over 100 years old, things aren’t always in the best shape. Books, papers, and photos tear […]

Waiting For The Eclipse

Hi everyone. I’m Maverick with this week’s edition of “Cat Tales.” I’m waiting for the eclipse. I keep looking out the window to see if anything is happening yet, but my mom says it won’t happen until Monday, April 8th. I told her that we should have a party and […]

Waiting Out The Storm

“Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by.” – Psalm 57:1 (ESV) I don’t think I will ever forget November 10, 2002, the day […]

I Don’t Like Spring Cleaning

Hi, I’m Maverick, and this is my column/blog, “Cat Tales.” It’s that time of year again for Spring cleaning. It’s exhausting watching my mom clean. I try to stay out of her way, or she may put me to work. I’m kidding. She started some of it last weekend and […]
