Though he has been gone from this world four years now, today would have been the birthday of my favorite author, Terry Pratchett. He was a great lover of cats and even wrote a book about them, "The Unadulterated Cat", so I hope no one minds that I am remembering him here on cat chat. His Discworld characters are like old friends to me. I've named many of my cats after them. I will always be saddened that Alzheimer's took away such a witty, intelligent mind, but I am grateful for the time he was here and the marvelous stories he gave us. So please join me and raise a glass to wish Sir Terry a happy birthday in whatever world he is traveling now.
