Proving that we truly are Old Queens, R Man and I are still in mourning over the death of our much beloved cat, Maggie, two years ago. She was tiny, the runt of her litter we suspect, and not very bright, but she was smart enough to run our home with an iron paw.
To alleviate some of our nostalgia, our friend Super Agent Fred occasionally spends the weekend with us and brings his charming, charming cat. We call it Going to Visit Granny. Assizi is terribly friendly with a beautiful coat that looks like a mountain lion’s fur. Like all really cute boys, he seems aware of the hubbub his ravishing good looks cause without being concerned about it. Another friend of Super Agent Fred’s cannot remember Assizi’s name and consequently refers to him simply as Steve. It’s a nickname that seems to suit his manly appeal, like Steve McQueen.
