So @benjiw, with addition of #twww, best hat ever? The third pin from the left contains metal flown in space, and the watch is permanently set to Florida time. (Shame I can't wear it anywhere but °o° without ridicule...)

This cat has been visiting the house for a year or so, having snacks, and gradually getting to the point of three or four full meals a day. Over time, she took to sleeping here more and more to the point that it's unusual for her not to. We didn't know her name or who her keeper was, so we called her "Catty" more as a nickname than anything else. Last year, she gained weight quite quickly and we suspected she was pregnant; turned out to be a false alarm.

Today, she appeared with an eye infection. So, off to the vet to get her treated, and to perhaps solve the mystery with a scan for a chip.

Turns out _HIS_ name's "Alfie", and his owner lives near here but doesn't want him; we suspect some neglect has taken place. So, he's now adopted and while we're going to have to accept his gender identity, he's going to be called "Catty" officially from now on.  I'm not sure whether calling him "Alfie" would be deadnaming him, or indeed if it would be the other way around. 
It's all irrelevant anyway: the fiction of human ownership of cats is clearly a trifling matter, and "Alfie", "Catty" or "Fat Arse" are no more than "Mithrandir", "Gandalf" or "Olórin" as mere labels given by the lesser races of Elves and Men.
