I’ve been cat deprived. I had a cat growing up and had cats for years before I brought home my first greyhound. Luckily, my neighbour decided to go on holiday/vacation for almost two weeks, leaving her tiny cat home alone! A tiny Russian Blue mix! Having someone come in to do the serious business of food and litter box made my job of hanging out easy (and fun). I also got to spoil her and get her treats.
For the record, Ladybird Johnson is not from Texas and she does not appear to like flowers, big hair, or smoking.
