Photo Friday: Creek Ratz Cat

I dug into the archives again for this week’s photo. This goes back to March 23, 2010, when Rose and I were still living in Myrtle Beach. We often went to a place called Murrell’s Inlet where they had several restaurants and shops. Usually, we ate at a place called Creek Ratz where we sat outside. If you click on the link you can see how nice it is there and, judging by the website, it is almost exactly as I remember it.

Anyway, while eating at Creek Ratz we were often met by a stray cat that hung out at the restaurant. Perhaps he made his rounds to all the restaurants.

I had a habit of ordering the chicken salad, which was essentially a salad with several chicken strips along the top. I always ate the salad and gave the chicken to the cat. Occasionally the cat wasn’t around and I would be disappointed like it was the cat I was going there for, even though the food and the atmosphere were outstanding. I guess the cat just made it extra special.

      Me too. I like it when the staff look out for strays. I was at a hotel once where the porters knew about the two stray cats that came around and helped take care of them, probably under the nose of management.

    Myrtle Beach .. ah, at first I thought, which coincidence, but then I checked – the awesome person behind the vet-blog I am following (Memoirs of a Country Vet) had his childhood spent in Myrtle Point, Oregon. Not in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
