Ever since we adopted Joan — our kitty who was found on the streets of Tennessee with her siblings and many kittens — my husband Michael has been “speaking” for Joan by saying, in a high Southern-accented voice, “I do what I want!”

- chasing our other cat Harley around the house,
- sitting where she wants to sit,
- playing when she wants to play,
- sleeping when and where she wants to sleep, and
- generally, being cat.
