His affinity for cats caused him to bring strays home every now and then. They didn’t always stick around, most of the time they were there for a day before wandering off to live their lives, only coming back if they needed food or shelter. Arthur knew it was selfish to keep them, he never asked the others if it was okay but he loved the cats. Today was no different.
This time it was a grey tabby cat he found sulking around the bakery. Arthur knelt down and coaxed the cat into his arms with a small piece of meat pie, “You’re just a hungry little fella, I’ve got food for you little cat.” When he arrived at the house, he was all smiles when he called out “I found a new one! He looks like a Murphy!”
Miri looked up from the fashion magazine she had been flipping through. Before Arthur came in she was trying decide between getting a jade ring with a platinum setting or with white gold. Turquoise was suppose to be the in color this year but jade would look much better with her skin tone and with the dress that she had seen a few pages back.
“You better not let Maze catch you with that.” Miri liked cats and Arthur knew it. “Really another M name? We need to get you further along in the alphabet Arty. Did you check to see if this one has fleas? We don’t want another infestation.”
