There is a little beastie in the basement; segregated from the common populaton and doted upon by mom and dad. I hear him mewling. So does Adina, who grooms her pretty stripes and flirts shamelessly from her side of the door. Tiger (I assume) meows back, lamenting his isolation.
It is common to have quarantine within this place: small, furry people that, for whatever reason, cannot be among the rest of us yet. For Tiger - who I've heard is a tabby and white - though I've not seen him, lungworm is the ailment. We cannot see him until he is well.
But I welcome Tiger. He is a cat and I forgive him that. When you are well I'll be happy to meet you.
