“…We have peace for our time.” Middle aged Abby balked and spit and hid and whined when two rambunctious kittens entered her (our) life. After three months of spitting standoffs and gradual appeasement, I am pleased to echo Neville Chamberlain, and optimistically state, “We have peace for our time.”
Of course, Neville said that on September 30, 1938. Six months later, Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia, severely vexing Chamberlain… and 6 months after that, September 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland, triggering the second world war.
But for now, Abby is appeased. Heck, I’ll take a year of peace. Sounds purrfect.
