CatsCast 1: The Cat Lady and the Petitioner

Author: Jennifer Hudak
Narrator: Alethea Kontis
Host: Laura Pearlman
Audio Producer: Wilson Fowlie

Laurie stands in front of a door. It’s old but solid, as many old things are. Whatever paint once covered it has long since worn away, and the wood beneath is striped, and furred with splinters. It is her very first door, of her very first day, of her very first job.

Her ankles wobble over brand-new high heels, and her smart jacket is slightly itchy and entirely unsuited for the warm weather. She lifts one aching foot and then the other out of her stiff, uncompromising shoes. Her life stretches out before her, a long walk down an endless road hemmed in on either side by door after closed, splintery door.

Reaching out two pink-lacquered fingers and one pink-lacquered thumb, she delicately lifts up the knocker—brass, cat-shaped, with a tail curled in a circle. When Laurie raps the knocker three times against the base, the tail twitches underneath her fingers.

Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Thank you! We're thrilled to be here! Or at least, the humans on staff are thrilled. Our feline associates are studiously indifferent.
