“A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.” – Proverbs 12:10


Mish (pronounced Meesh) wakes us up every morning. That’s with the exception of the nights she ends up sleeping indoors. Our unique alarm clock knows exactly which window is our bedroom. When she’s hungry and wants to come inside, our calico friend jumps up on our windowsill and meows incessantly. I must confess that I am not as much of a cat lover as my husband. When Mish cries, I tend to roll over and ignore her, but Prit will get up and make his way to the front door calling to her, “I’m coming, Mish!” She hears the shuffle of his feet coming down the hall and then manages to run around to the front door before he opens it.

Mish is the general term Haitians use to call cats. It’s their version of “Here kitty, kitty.” Why haven’t we given her a special name? Well, Mish works just fine and no other names come to mind. As you can see, once she arouses US to feed HER, she goes back to sleep with a full tummy.
