Ponderings by Picasso

If you're a stray cat in the Cleveland to Willowick area, your life was probably graced by Dorothy Max at some point.

The Euclid resident was the ultimate "Crazy Cat Lady," feeding an unknown number of strays and ferals throughout the years.

The 81-year-old died Thursday at 81, but leaves a legacy of one being one humane human.

Nothing stopped Dorothy  -- not snow, rain or even drug dealers, who got so used to her in the rough East Cleveland neighborhoods, they often helped her carry the cat food bags.

Life on the streets isn't pretty for strays, but Dorothy Max made it liveable for so many.

As a former stray myself, here's a thank-you to Dorothy.

Earth's loss is heaven's gain.

Later, P.
