Virginia Bemis, happy 70th birthday! Your treat today is to visit Vorkosigan
House and help round up the kittens-you don't have to chase them yourself,
just to wrangle the pack of children into finding them and bringing them to
you. Your actual duty is to pet and calm the little kittens so they can be
spayed and neutered by the vet brought onsite (Dr. Borgos has helped to set
up a sterile facility, it's all properly done). Of course, the real problem
is persuading Miles that it's time for Zap to end her career, but Ekaterin
promised she'd take that on.
You are surprised when three cats begin setting up a video facility to
report the news to fellow cats around the Nexus (why, yes, this is a
commercial for Breaking Cat News) while a burly barn cat sets up the
audio/video feed. Miles is disturbed, but not surprised, when he finds out
they're from the Catagandan Embassy, and decides it's time to harass the
Council of Counts again over something.
Of course you have a splendid dinner catered by Ma Kosti afterwards, and
sent home with lots of lovely pictures and pick of the litter.
