My Christmas gift in 2010 was the little mechanical kitty to the right and a note that said we could get a cat. I named the mechanical kitty Placey, short for Placeholder. Louis did not know we would get a silver cat, much less a Mau, when he gave it to me. But days later, I found Evelyn’s Arietta cattery site, and 2 months later, we had a little Mau kitten that looked just like the toy. How mysterious.
