Have you read the one about the lucky saucer? Here it is—still containing the British terms and spellings: “In front of the local butcher’s, an art connoisseur noticed a mangy little kitten lapping up milk from a saucer. The saucer, he realised with a start, was a rare and precious piece of pottery. It was, in fact, a collector’s item.
He strolled into the store and offered two pounds for the cat. ‘He’s not for sale’, said the butcher.
‘Look’, said the collector, ‘that moggy is dirty and scabby, but I’m an eccentric. I prefer cats that way. I’ll raise my offer to ten pounds.’
‘It’s a deal,’ said the proprietor, and he pocketed the ten immediately.
‘For that amount of money I’m sure you won’t mind throwing in the saucer,’ said the connoisseur, ‘The kitten seems so happy drinking from it.’
‘I can’t do that,’ said the butcher firmly, ‘That’s my lucky saucer. From that saucer, so far this week, I’ve sold 18 cats.’

Lily Update: Thank you for all of your prayers and good wishes for Lily. She is eating again, but only when we bring food to her–it’s a start. She’s also enjoying the many visits we make to where she has decided to stay put and rest. I did get her to let go of a flimsy piece of blanket she was laying on and she’s now resting on a large, soft, cozy one. Cats do have their own mind even when Mother knows best. She’s still weak and a kitten, but she is definitely showing signs of improvement.
