After being the object of affection of cats weighing in
at over thirty pounds between them, and grateful for the
attention, I return to what was once, in my mind,
a large cat. He seems tiny, almost. Svelte, lithe
and precisely right for feline ideal form, the cat of
home. The weight and friendliness of Mau and Bear will
stay with me, friends, always. Moby is my home.
Who says video phones won't work? Being able to do video
chat with D eased much of our distress at being
apart. We are together now, and easier in ourselves for it.
