When we last left our cat heroines, they had just learned that Sleeper’s long lost father, Siddhartha (Sidd, for short) had been kidnapped for the SECOND time! And was now being held in an undisclosed kitten mill right there in Michigan!
“Oh, this is so terrible!” Sleeper wailed. Samhain was frowning at Shadow.
“What is it you think WE can do to help? Do you even know where he is?” she asked her father.
“Not precisely. We figure it’s one of three places in the state. This is where you two come in - you’ve got contacts all over the country through Catster. We thought you could network with your friends to try to find which of the three, and then we strike!” Shadow pounded one paw into the other in emphasis.
“Who’s this ‘we’?” Samhain asked suspiciously.
Shadow coughed, and muttered nervously, “your mother.”
“NO!” Samhain pushed away from the fence grill, preparing to go back into the house.
Sleeper caught her paw and pleaded tearfully, “Please, Samhain – it’s my father! We have to help him!”
Shadow pressed up against the fence, calling after her, “She said you might have this reaction! You don’t have to see her, if you don’t want. It’s why she sent me. I can get the information from you and go after him myself. She won’t be going into the mill itself with me; it’s too dangerous.”
“Well, WE’RE going!” Sleeper said firmly, stamping her foot on the ground.
“Darlin’, didn’t I just say it was too dangerous? No way am I taking you with me. Besides, how can you go, you’re locked in the cattery!”
“That’s easy! See that slide bolt? Just grab the end in your mouth, push up and then pull to the left; it’ll open,” she said matter-of-factly.
Samhain and Shadow stared at her, and then at each other.
“Is she normally like this?” Shadow questioned, bemused. Samhain shook her head.
“This is new,” she answered.
