The Kittens Stay!

One of my favorite websites is Letters of Note.  Today they have a letter from Mark Twain which he posted permanently on his front door after his home was burgled in 1908.

    Oh Sam, I think I love you. Take what you will, but don’t disturb the kittens.

    A lot to love about Mark Twain, this is one of my favorites:
    “The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man’s.”

    Letter to W.D. Howells, 2 April 1899

    I can only agree.

    My sign says “No Trespassing” followed by one that says “Nothing on this property is worth dying for” printed on a target silhouette from the NRA. Criminals and psychopaths don’t understand innuendos very well.
