Cat in the Stacks

Friends, meet Frederick “Freddie” Paw Olmsted. He lives with SMP executive editor, Keith Kahla, who wants to tell you all about him:

“The cat is relatively new. He was a street rescue by a friend of a former assistant—a stray who was living on the streets of Bed Stuy (editor’s note: the cat, not the assistant). She took care of all the important vet stuff, but he and Otter, her rescue pit bull, weren’t the best of friends.”

Long story short, he came home with me.


We seem to have a similar outlook on life.

And we get along.

Though he is very curious about what’s on my shelves, and if there’s anything good to read.

Sometimes, he fancies himself an editor (a Fred-itor?). Or just wonders why Keith has to work so much.

And like the Dowager on Downton Abbey, he simply does not approve.
