on Tuesday, 11 September 2018. Posted in Columns, Opinions

I have mentioned my cats in the past. I have two Siamese cats, Reese and Kit. They are 1 and 4 respectively. I have always been more of a cat person rather than a dog person. It’s not that I don’t like dogs. I think dogs are cute and sometimes they are fu
