Elrod’s the handyman. Why? Because he’s a man with hands? I had no interest in exploring the question. Humans have their ways, usually noisy, and we in the cat world have ours, usually quiet. At the moment I was absolutely motionless and silent, yet still somehow the main character.

“These are what I call catnip nipnips,” Mrs. Hale said. “My own recipe. Let’s see if Queenie likes them.”

We were in the library, sitting at Mrs. Hale’s desk – Mrs. Hale in the big chair, Harmony in the little chair, and me actually on the desk. Mrs. Hale took out a baggie and from it produced a small tubular treat, about the size of a Cheeto, but far more interesting. She laid it on the desk.

All eyes were then on me. Catnip. I smelled it right away, of course, and the impulsive side of me was suddenly the only side. Normally, as I’m sure you know by now, I’m the dignified type, delicate in my responses, the very farthest thing from greedy. And the truth is I prefer to eat in private. I suppose I could have taken my catnip nipnip – what a fine name! – under the desk but by the time that thought came to me it was all gone.
