Arrival Story:
Einstein's mom was rescued from a cat mill and the next day she had kittens. Surprise! He was born with the eye & sinus infection, and it's a lot better now although according to 3 different vets it won't go away. Einstein's mom unfortunately had never encountered dogs before; the dog in the house where she was staying attacked her (the cats _he_ was used to ran away from him) and she unfortunately died. The woman who rescued Einstein's mother gave him to me because she had wanted to keep him, but was unsure as to whether he'd be able to live with the dog.

Bio:
I was visiting my dad's friend and her dog killed Einstein's mother. I felt so bad for this motherless, crusty little kitten that I spent my whole vacation in California wiping eyes and something that they promised me was a nose. After calling my parents over and over and "forgetting" about the 3 hour time difference, they said fine, BRING the cat, just stop calling at 3 AM. So we went to a vet who quickly gave us a certificate of health and tried to sell us on cat orthodontics....no, really. I said I was not interested in giving Einstein teeth braces, but thanks anyway. The next day we departed on an airline that shall not be named, where nobody looked at the health certificate, but every employee demanded to see the adorable, adorable kitten. Einstein expressed his displeasure at 35,000 feet by evacuating his bowels. Everyone around me was sniffing the air and staring at me. "GEE, EINSTEIN," I said loudly, "FOR A CAT YOU CERTAINLY ARE BEING WELL BEHAVED ON THIS PLANE!" We had a layover in Phoenix, where nobody told me they didn't celebrate Daylight Savings Time. I frantically [thinking I had 20 minutes to catch the next flight] ran to the nearest Ladies' room and tried to clean off the now white and brown kitten, snuffling with distaste at this journey. Do you know how hard it is to clean crap off a cat using those stupid sensor faucets? Try it sometime. Anyway, I ran to the gate, and found out we had an extra hour. So we got on the next flight, which was cheerfully delayed to Cleveland or Cincinatti or somewhere due to a thunderstorm, and then we landed in [an unnamed airport in New Jersey], and sat on the ground for four hours due to the power being out and our flight not having been assigned a gate. I mean, we could see my dad standing there. Anyway, after 23 hours, we had come from California to New Jersey. I walked through the door with a suticase in my hand and a crusty, crap covered cat on my shoulder, to the look of my horrified mother. "Isn't he a MIRACLE?" I said? And Einstein was home to do his thing {literary research and gravity experiments}. Sure, this may be more appropriate in the "arrival story section. But, uh, who cares? I'm sure that plane ride was a big part of his life. Yeah. And oh yeah: despite what the photographs may imply, Einstein's favorite book remains The Cat in the Hat.

Jacques Derrida went over the rainbow bridge yesterday. I am very sad.

In memory: Jacques Derrida: 1930-2004.

Here is a link about Derrida (da da da!) if you are interested in learning more about him. May he rest in peace.
