Thanks, I'm glad you noticed that. And thanks to Melissa too. I had 
to fudge it a bit though, I couldn't really find any spin for the 
business with  Naomi's father or poor Lavinia (although come to 
think of it Lavinia did like being a cat, apart from being turned out of 
doors -- perhaps she let AM down by chasing birds....). Actually it 
was a rather creepy exercise, going so much against my own 
inclinations, and I'm sure I have read books like this too.
