Yipes.  Lucius has this annoying high-pitched little mew that goes through
doors and pillows and teeth, but nothing that painful!

:) Yipes.  One of our neighbours has a cat that wongs.  We listen to it
going on and on in the evenings and then pick up Lucius and pet him out of
sheer gratitude that he can't do that.

I fear there was no referral at all.  My friend and roommate who picked it
wanted something suitably aristocratic.  Though it gave us rather a turn
when she found out Lucius was also the first name of Seneca, whose letters
had been inflicted on her at the time (in Latin).
