Dear MEOW,

Hello Meow People:

Joy (known to you as ‘Calisse’ when we adopted her*) thought I should send you the recent photograph I took of her and the following message, as she celebrated her fifth anniversary with us a few days ago.

“Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all …

I asked my staff to send you the recent picture of me in my new office; I have been promoted to Office Manager but when they think I am not listening, they call me the Cabinet Monster. The pay is the same (poor!) but the benefits are quite good. I even have House Calls from my own medical attendant & pedicurist, which is nice, especially in winter.”

Yours sincerely,
