Dickens The Cat Pt. II

Dickens - the sleek, black, rumbunctious, orphan boy cat we have been fostering - may have a new home.

One of the librarians at the Motion Picture Academy's Fairbanks Center for Motion Picture Study not long ago lost her own beloved black cat, and Dickens seems to have appeared in her life at just the right time. And vice-versa.

Dickens will go over for a stay in the next week or so, and spend a few days getting to know the resident female cat, Elise. If there are no obvious difficulties and Dickens and Elise get along, Dickens will become a permanent member of their family.

Of course, Janet and I will miss Dickens.

Worse, our little girl cat, Vladia Velocicat, who has mothered, sistered, and schooled the boy-kitty will be substantially distressed and bewildered at Dickens's sudden disappearance.

King of the house, Cheop the Cat, probably won't notice the difference.

But our tabby Sri Lanka, who has spent most of Dickens's stay sulking under the bed, will be greatly relieved.

Between now and Sept 16 John and I "have" to get a little kitty. Did you know that? We want a small snuggly little thing to call our "Supper mega Kitty". Keep a look out...

"Supper Mega Kitty" is the best cat-related phrase ever!

Also, Go Sondra Go!
