The Net Caster (Part Five)

Under Cytherea's two suns, the talking taxi was taking me to a destination I knew nothing of.

A wonderful piece, Penny. I've had four cats, two sets of two, over the years, down to the last one now! Like your husband, I wasn't brought up with animals, and got the first moggies only because my kids were desperate for a pet and we weren't...

What a wonderful story - thanks for putting in the link. I wasn't aware of this before. That last verse brings a definite little prickling of the eyes. It'sgreat to know that, for once, our species is showing respect and love for another.
