Dear Internet,

Thank you! I received so many wonderful wee wishes and condolences, Here and Here, I couldn’t possibly answer them all, but they were all very much appreciated, every leetle wish.
But just to clarify: Yes, Zman was named after Ronnie ‘Z-Man’ Barzell from Russ Meyer’s “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls”… and while that movie remains one of my all time favorite films ever, the name has been a bit of an injustice to my precious feline. She was always such a wee fastidious princess and not the big draq queen kitty I originally imagined her to be. But I was eighteen when I got her, and we’d spent the whole summer watching that movie over and over, knew every line by heart so, alas… such was her name.
