Dedicated to Cat Lovers and my own sweet kitties.
We called her all kinds of names, but the one I stuck with was Silly Sally. The other kids’ names were much nastier, but I didn’t like using those words when I was twelve. Plus, young ladies weren’t supposed to say…those. That’s what Dad said, and I always trusted Dad. He’d be upset if he heard me say things like that.
Silly Sally’s house was white with square columns on the porch. The grass was overgrown and her pink Crepe Myrtles needed trimming every summer. But the biggest thing about Silly Sally was her thousand and one cats. That’s what we’d say, she had a thousand and one. They prowled all over her yard, through the neighborhood, and there was even one who sat on her roof every day. He was midnight black and would stare down into the yard at the other thousand cats.
