New Orleans and a Kitten Hunt
Berry slept all the way to New Orleans, which felt like a miracle. But she was just saving her energy for the Kitten Hunt.
Nathan was on call so Berry and I went solo, visiting Stu and Rikki and their unfortunate cats Jack and Madeline.
In fact Jack and Madeline are usually very fortunate cats, much adored. But when Berry comes along you can see it on their faces: "We are unfortunate. Who allowed that small creature into our home?"
Berry loves nothing more than a kitten. She'll go to the ends of the earth – or the house – or under the bed or wherever you please, to find one. So that's her main project at Stu and Rikki's place. That, and buttering up Stu. She's a huge fan of Stu, as you can see...
You'll notice there are no pictures of the cats. For the most part, they wisely stayed under the bed. (Berry is pointing this sad fact out to Rikki in the top photo.)
