The Beat residents, according to a cat

The Beat has been adopted by a cat, a tabby now named Mel or Mell or, when Jon says it before he's had his espresso, Moe. M. is a she and not just, as Dave hypothezied, ball-less. She was sleeping on our couch porch the other morning and then invited herself in and then Ryan, who is allergic to cats but writes love songs about them, went and bought her food. Harvey was gone for the weekend and so surprised when M. jumped into his bed in the middle of the night, and August, who according to the note he's put on the phone IS NOT HERE (ever), probably still doesn't know.

M. seems to like biting my elbows while purring.

Will (s)he come?

With one resident shy of a contract, the future of The Beat is in jeopordy.

Alarmist? Today, the landlord gave a tour of the house to some track guys.
