In the Beginning, There was George...

  • Laura Gould


George came to us from the Humane Society. At six weeks he was tiny and scrawny, embodying the description on his cage, which explained that his “family” had given him up for adoption because they couldn’t afford to feed him. He was awkward as well and appeared to be walking on thin white stilts — stilts that were slightly taller in back than in front. He had a long skinny tail, striped like a raccoon’s, and a plain white belly. But his back was beautifully colored in patches of orange and black, making me wonder suddenly whether he could really be a male, as his identification card declared. I thought I remembered that all calico cats were female.
