A few years back, when I was living in Colorado, Pat and I played host to two of our British friends for the first time. On a long car ride to see the local sights, they introduced to us a game called The Parsons’ Cat. You take turns calling out adjectives for the Parsons’ cat, in alphabetical order; each person can have a letter, or everyone has to do each letter without duplicating the others.

Tonight, I found myself playing the game again, centering around our fifth houseguest cat, Kali, aka Deathcat, aka Bitty. She’s been here four months with no official departure date, so she’s sort of ours until her mama can receive her. Then, just to contrast, I played the game with my dog.
