can claim nothing for this. It was an act of kindness by my lover, who lives
in California, I live in Massachussets. We were talking last night, and
he told me that all day long he had heard a cat crying. He had been outside
four or five times looking for it. As we talked, he said to me "Do
you hear it?", and sure enough, I did. "Wait," he said, "I
think it's near the front door. I'm going to get a flashlight." A minute
later he got back on the phone to say goodbye. He and a neighbor thought
they could find it.
morning he told me that they had found a tiny, hungry, frightened kitten,
hidden deep in his hedge. Some neighborhood children said that a family
down the street had just had kittens, and this was probably one of them.
The kitten was returned to its family.
