"She is verwy beautiful" Ramses said judiciously, his dark eyes examining the cat. "What is her name?"

"Her former owner called her The Cat Bastet" I answered not inquiring how he knew it was a she.

Bastet considered Ramses with her unblinking golden eyes. She rose and started towards Ramses. Reaching him she reared up on her hind legs, placed her front paws on his shoulders, and butted him on the head.

"Verwy well" Ramses said. "I shall take her up to my rooms now. Good night mama, goodnight papa. Come along de Cat Bastet" As one he and the cat turned and departed.

Emerson and I swapped bemused glances.
