Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Hey, Mooh -- great to see your name on the board again.

We had a tomcat like your George. His name was Bill, and he was both a biter and a pisser -- preferring doors and baseboards to bags, and responsible for the destruction of rather too many books on bottom shelves. But definitely just full of je ne sais quoi.

Bill was the source of a family joke, the one about the "free cat". He came into our lives at the back door, at which he pounded when he finally decided to get off the street, and cost us thousands over the 13 years he lived with us, not only in vet bills (nearly $1,000 in his first two weeks) but also to repair the havoc he so casually wrought.

Peace to you, too!
