I stopped to visit my cousin Jimmy today. Jimmy has always been a dog lover. When we were young he always had his dog by his side and to this day goes almost nowhere without Angus, his Cairn Terrier. What I didn't realize until quite recently is that he was probably Doctor Dolittle in another life. He loves all animals, cats, birds and turtles (stopped to save one that was in the middle of a highway--he moved it to a grassy wooded area). He even leaves food out for the fox that live on his property. This is his cat Oscarina, who was Oscar until she delivered six kittens! She was feral, but of course Jimmy took her in and found homes for all the kittens. She is completely devoted to him now.
