A KITTEN CALLED NOAH: Last week we had to have our cat Smokey put to sleep, because at aged twenty one, she had had enough of this world. She is probably enjoying heaven, eating all that premium cat food we could never afford down here on earth. She was lovely. Anyway, my daughter-in law’s friend has a cat who has just given birth, and we are to have one of the kittens. Whether it’s a girl or a boy, we are calling it Noah, and already I am planning a family equivalent of a baby shower. No one will be allowed in unless they come bearing, at the very least a ping pong ball. Moses, our other cat will have her nose put out of joint until the fuss dies down, and there will be a fuss, until Noah disgraces himself in some way, as is bound to happen. A little puddle on the hearth rug, and Noah will have blotted his copy book!
