Thread Name: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Don't know how many Mudcatters are familiar with
Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books series of historical fantasy,
if that's the term for it.
The television adaptation of these books is being filmed and broadcast on cable network,
and the show has met with some success;
the books are hugely successful in themselves.
The series of books isn't yet finished,
and there is one more book at least to come, if not more.
The television show is behind the book series, several books behind.
But the show has now caught up with the books sufficiently
to introduce THAT CAT.
Yes, there is a cat, as well as a dog,
who play supporting roles (memorable character acting) in Outlander.
The dog turns up earlier in the books (and the adaptation).
Now the cat has arrived, as a stray kitten.
One of the human characters, a cradle Catholic,
recalls a cat from childhood, in which the character's mother
named the pet cat "Adso"
for Saint Adso of Melk, whoever that is.
