I will guarantee anonymity except in cases of blatant abuse.
I will achieve anonymity by tallying the results in

into the Dublin Mountains, enjoying the pure air and the
beautiful scenery. On one such trip we heard of an elderly
Siamese cat who was dying from an immense internal
tumor. After much pressure, we managed to take her into
our household. The best veterinary surgeon in the whole of
Ireland examined her but thought she had only hours to
live. I persuaded him to operate to remove the tumor
caused by neglect and too many kittens. She recovered, and
proved to have the sweetest nature of any person or animal
I have ever met. Now, as I write, she is walking round like
