Because the composite deck gets very hot (something I did not know when having it installed), AND removing a tree made it sunnier, the cats were not happy going out on the deck in mid day.
So, I found a roll of outdoor carpet to give them a cooler path around and off the deck. The carpet was leftover from when I used it on my aluminum Jon boat in 1994 to reduce glare and deaden sounds.
Well, when I unrolled it, I found a cat whisker. I can't tell which cat it was from. Skeeter, LC, maybe even Tinkerbelle. But it definitely the oldest cat whisker I have. I haven't mixed it in with the others; it is "special". It is 22 years old!
One of those really odd things you discover digging into the past... Which reminds me that I should pour out my bottle of collected cat whiskers and take a picture of them. I have a lot, but I bet I missed most of them while cleaning.
