Life is now complete. Or almost complete – when the Gep joins us late in July we will all be together. Last night my Kat arrived, car overflowing with her earthly possessions, as well as a small furry creature. Lily meet Dora.
In the beginning of this just-ended school year, Kat had a long-term job substitute teaching preschool children, so she bought Dora for the class. Now that she is going to Korea to teach this coming school year, her belongings will be living with us, as will Dora. Lily considers this quite interesting.
Lily is disgruntled. The people in this house obviously do not understand her motives, pure as they are. They have secured the lid of this pen with duct tape – because duct tape is the magic cure for many things. She will stand guard, she will stay close, she will ponder. Because some day, some way, she will find a way to help Dora escape.
We hope she does not enlist the aid of the big furry girls that live here. That could get ugly.
