A Collection of Silly Kitty Stories

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 growing.

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 kitty-stories.

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.
