Lauchita’s 2 Years

Saturday, March 29, 2008: 2 years ago today I took Lauchita from her cardboard box home by Hospital Bernardo Houssay to my apt. She had been living there for a while and I felt sorry for her. Lauchita is a grey and white cat that looked pregnant. Her eyes were green and she wanted a lap to sit on. When Rubio saw her, he, being a German shepherd, behaved like a gentleman. My home is your home, he seemed to tell her in animal language.
That night, as I lay in bed watching TV, Lauchita looked up at me. Come, jump up, I told her. She has made parts of my body her home ever since.

The participants on these forums will provide guidance and encouragement for you, because many of them have overcome great financial hardship. (They will probably be more gentle than the wise, but frequently brusque, posters at

    Please write to me at my personal email if you have questions about the forums or FPU.

    Blessings to you, Eugenia.
