Poor little Gergiev, all alone . . .
Apparently, my little housecat Gergiev is lonely, pining for me to adopt a passel of kitties for her to amuse herself with. Unbeknownst to her, however, I have arranged for her to visit her feline cousin Domino in June while I am away at Daytona Beach. Hopefully, this will adequately satiate her loneliness. Until then, I shall endeavor to convince her that my life-size statue of Bastet, the Egyptian cat goddess, is indeed a very real cat.
