You'd see her sometimes, walking the sidewalk.

She had no concern for strangers & no worry for cars; traffic lined up a mile back if she decided she needed to settle in a sunbeam in the center of an intersection.

She was motley & mottled, tall-shouldered, her tail held high, and every house in the neighborhood put out a little bowl for her.



"But what does she do?" one new neighbor asked an old one.  "Beside catch mice, I mean-"

"Other cats catch mice." Teo gestured at the marbled cat, happily munching on top-shelf tuna. "This one, she catches hearts."


This is meant to be in my setting, a modern-fantasy world where the magic is in connections (And also the theme of this month's !)

Happy from my cats to yours.
