Admit to Mademoiselle that I am pining after dear Rose to Mademoiselle. She advises Thinking about Other Things, and also to try Keeping out in the Fresh Air—which makes me feel like an 18th century plough boy.
Tell Mademoiselle that I intend to take Rose under my wing and show her how to become A Lady, as am seriously exercised in my mind as to probable standard of deportment with which she will grow up under bachelor Robert’s (human) tutelage.
For any newcomers to this saga: I am Gypp, domestic cat of 16¾ years.
As a Libertarian Feline of Modern Ideals and Fearless Attitude, I read improving books, mostly classics, and I quote E.M. Delafield’s Diary of a Provincial Lady rather aptly and regularly, but My Humans do not pay any attention to my colossal literary achievements.
I refer to My Humans in a detached way as Female Human and Male Human so as not to appear too fond of them.
Helen Wills—next door neighbour, with an appalling dog and a purebred French cat.
Mademoiselle—Helen Wills’ elitist cat.
Mrs B—cat-fanatic cat-sitter.
Miss P—friend of My Female Human, vociferous dog-lover / cat-hater.
Rose—my darling little protégé, a stray kitten rescued by My Humans and living in flat upstairs with her Human, bachelor Robert.
