Rummaging in old files

Even after all these years, it’s still a surprise that two little black cats could look – well, so evil.

And the only creatures who really ever got that very same look were a mouse, a mole – or a fly.

Abishag and Ira would’ve done very well in a movie version of Three Wise Cats.

But they would’ve hated traveling to Hollywood. They loved their beds, the sunshine, their toys and the treats, and wouldn’t have been happy to leave those behind. Fame had too high a price to lure them. And really, I’m glad of that.
