    Hi, Martha, Selina is good. I had Jemima picked out for my next cat, who turned out to be George, prenamed and masculine. Around here the cats’ name hardly matter because they all respond to Kitty.
    We’ve had good and mediocre and I hope you get a doozy.

    Best of luck with the new kitty. Comet turned out kind of pervy. He was really a prince from another planet, and in his humanoid form courted Kara. I guess that’s a lot of girls’ dream about their horses, but it was still kind of strange in the seemingly innocent days.

    Wished I’d known you wanted a kitten. A lovely kitten wandered into our backyard around Thanksgiving and we’re trying to find a home or shelter for it. We can’t keep it — already have all the lease allows. Ahy well. We’re holding out for a no-kill shelter.

    @John: Is it a girl cat? That’s what John wants. If so, let’s talk.

    Y’know, even when I was little, it always bothered me that Kara-el/Linda Lee Danvers/Supergirl had a cat and Kal-el/Clark Kent/Superboy had a dog. It was so sexist, even though when I was a kid I didn’t know that word!!!! Even Dick had a dog and Jane had a cat!

    As you may guess, I’m not a cat person. Dogs, that’s another matter. I read all the classic dog stories–LASSIE, LAD: A DOG, BIG RED, and all the sequels.

    And horses! I was really happy when Kara “got” Comet–and then, like the other Frank Miller, I thought it was kind of pervy when they turned him in a guy. Really, even as a kid, it disturbed me.

    Remember – and for me it’s more true of cats than dogs – they give you so much, and they don’t ask for much – only a little piece of your soul.
