Usually my silly-kitty stories feature my cat, Alban Quivertail, R.C.
[Resident Cat], a little white fellow with pink ears and the palest blue
eyes you've ever seen. He had a little smudge-like spot the size of my thumb
when we first got him, but it blea - um - disappeared before he stopped
Alban is a white kitty cat with pink ears, mouth, nose, and paw-pads,
and pale, ice-blue eyes. His mother was deaf, but he managed to inherit her
coloring while getting his father's hearing. He can hear the back door
rattle or the refrigerator open from across the house, and it's a long
house! His full name, with titles, is Alban Quivertail, Resident Cat.
"Alban" I (kind of) picked out before we even got him, since I knew we were
getting a white kitty; it's from "albus", Latin for "white". I think how he
got at least part of the rest his name is covered in some of the
Alban lives with my parents and myself in Hilo, Hawai'i. He is an inside
cat, in spite of continual efforts on his part to change that to in-and-out
cat. This is only one of many projects -- both ongoing and occasional --
that he seems to come up with to keep his people busy.
The other kitty most likely to show up is Agatha. She belongs to the
neighbors just seaward of us, and comes over to visit occasionally. Her
encounters with Alban are sometimes almost friendly, and other times
anything else but, but they're usually interesting.
