Phone 645-1334 The Mountain Messenger, Thursday May 17, 1990 9A Last Sunday afternoon i'd had enough of grading papers and doing laundry. The sun swooped from be- hind a cloud and I made a mad dash from behind the ironing board out into the yard. The temperature had warmed fifteen degrees since morn- ing. The spring air enlivened my bones and my mood. I decided to bring the kittens out of the garage to introduce them to the world. They had been in a box in the garage for four weeks without seeing the light of day. The mother cat, Cleo, had found an escape hole in the door that didn't quite shut, and had been in and out to stretch her legs and beg for milk. But the kittens re- mained huddled in the cardboard box lined with old towels, whining until Cleo returned. I picked up the box of seven gray and white, spotted and striped kit- tens, and brought them out into the yard to slt beside me while I filled my flower pots with new soil. Cleo followed at my heels unwilling to trust her mistress with her brood. She hopped into the box as soon as I set it down. The kittens twitched their noses and blinked their eyes in the bright sun. Cleo looked around nervously in all directions and growled. She had other thoughts about my magnanimous gesture of sharing the spring afternoon with her babies. She grabbed the fattest kitten by the neck and proceeded to carp/it in her mouth back into the garage. Her pace was unhurried but firm. She made seven successive trips in quiet order. On the seventh trip I fol- lowed her back with the box in my hands to the garage where six shiv- ering kittens huddled on the cold concrete floor. Cleo looked up at me accusingly, and I quickly put the seven kittens back in the box. Cleo jumped in and started nursing imme- diately. I could tell I wasn't desired in the dark garage, and so I shut the door behind me carefully before heading back to the pots. The whole episode disturbed me out of proportion to what I had wit- nessed -- a mother cat protecting II IIIIIII IIIIIII II Iv GOOD - .LOOKING GOOD- SELLING ADVERTISEMENTS APPEAR IN THE MOUNTAIN MESSENGER.

Then it came to me. I was jeal- ous, feeling inferior in my mother- hood in comparison with my cat. Cleo never had a doubt about how to raise her kittens. She knew in- stinctively what they needed, and she was fierce and unwavering in seeing they got it. She had not been ready to leave them on the lawn even though she knew the fresh air would do them good. Nor was she ashamed to cry for milk at the front door at dawn in order to best replen- ish her own. She made no apolo- gies. She gave up hunting, she gave up her bed on the sofa, she forgot her daily routines and gave her kit- tens full attention. I also knew that in a couple of weeks she would just as seriously nudge them out of the box into the yard where she would paw at them and knock them over, in or- der to teach them to be strong and to defend themselves. She would know just the right time to let them go from the safety of their box. Poor humans, I thought, as I shoveled dirt with my spade into the last of the pots. How we hang on too long or let go too soon, our instincts less certain than a cat's. I decided to dispel my bad mood, a result of too much thinking, and gave my atten- tion to the flowers that would soon be trailing over the edges of these pots. If watered, fed, and tended, they would bloom. And the lesson ended right there on that mild and breezy Sunday afternoon. ABB Lays 20 Em Recent layoffs at Asea Brown Boveri (ABB) Process Analytics have been announced as tempo- rary, according to an employee of the Lewisburg company.
