They say that those who refuse to learn from history are destined to repeat it in summer school.
Tabby’s Place icon Tashi says that those who refuse to learn from history are destined to continue using the term “unadoptable.”
Those who do learn from history, however, are about to have a feast of delight.
I apologize in advance that I must be a tad cryptic today, but we don’t like to count our rutabagas until they’re rutabagaed at Tabby’s Place. You may have heard scuttlebutt that there’s an Epic Adoption in the works. You may have heard right. But until the little rutabaga in question is out the door, we’re not announcing anything officially.
In the meantime, though, a lesson from history – and a hint at what we hope to post about tomorrow. Feast your fancy on the latest from Tashi and Gabriella‘s family:
“I hope all of you have been well!
“Tashi is doing really well! Gabby is too! We recently got them new bath towels to dry off with, since they still loving getting their weekly baths! Tashi has a little duck towel and Gabby has a turtle towel.
“We like to continue with their baths since it keeps them nice and clean, but I must say they have been keeping quite clean themselves. They both love to groom each other. It’s so sweet to see. They lay near each other, and Gabby usually starts by inching over to Tashi and little by litle cleaning him all over. When she is done, Tashi does the same for her. Then they curl up and take a nap. It’s really precious! From time to time even our other cats, Sammy and Priscilla will join in and groom them too. They are two really clean cats!
“We mostly just love to see the continued love they all have for one another, which seems to get stronger and stronger all the time.”
You know what else gets stronger and stronger all the time? The conviction that “unadoptable cats” are about as real as “winged salamanders.”
It’s fine to play pretend. Feel free to dress up as an unadoptable cat or a winged salamander for Halloween. But we’re keeping it real at Tabby’s Place. And, following in Tashi and Gabby’s paraplegic footsteps, it’s about to get real.
Stay tuned, my little rutabagas.
PS to the peanut gallery: Of course you can always talk amongst yourselves in the comments. But I can neither confirm nor deny anything until (a) it happens and (b) we tell the appropriate sponsors that it happened. And if I’ve left you cataclysmically confused at this point, my apologies. Go have a rutabaga sundae on me.
