“The cat -- Eleanor Roosevelt -- had one stiff back leg, the other was, uh, twisted; somethin preposterous was the matter with her spine. I scooped the smooshed thing up with a snow shovel after it got run over by a county plow truck durin one of those one-hundred-year-snow-storms, or the third such storm that month. Forced by prevailing conditions -- unable to reach a pet hospital -- I fixed Eleanor up as best I could and, ah, nursed her through a long night. It was durin this critical time that she developed a taste for tequila and I, once again, came to believe in miracles.”
