El Gato


Rosie, first child of the Lents’ Siamese cat, Cica. Cica had a litter of three kittens. We named the white one we thought we would keep Hamlet and the two black ones Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Someone else fell in love with Hamlet so we kept Rosencrantz. For probably obvious reasons Rosie stuck. [The sticker was probably from an attempt to learn Spanish before a Central America trip?—EL]
