Cindy just brought me from the shelter a couple of seven-week old calico kittens that need fostering until they are old enough to be adopted. We call the boy Frankie, after legendary lindy hopper Frankie Manning, since he’s very energetic and a big jumper. The girl we call Dawn, after dancer and singer Dawn Hampton since she’s more laid back and cool.
Tomorrow I’ll introduce them to my cat Mole. He’ll be delighted.
In related news, it’s "I Love NYC Pets" Month! So go forth and adopt an animal that needs a home!
