he just missed being adopted by a famous
TV/movie writer/producer and living "the life" in
Malibu. It's an interesting little story but I will
need to change the names to protect the identity
of the "person" who is still working on the movie…
and in fact is working in the producer's home, but
I can give the basics.
Fox wanted to get Dana a kitten for Valentine's
Day, so they headed to a local shelter. Outside the
shelter they encountered a woman holding
a box with 4 kittens in it..so tiny, eyes still closed,
looking like little aliens. She told them that the shelter
would not take them since they were newborns and
required too much care, they were over crowded as it
is was and would not accept any animal that could not
be programmed, categorized or easily referenced...they
would only euthanize them. Fox & Dana were horrified and
would not stand idly by and let yet another government
conspiracy play out! They took ALL the kittens back to
Fox's home where they had to be bottle fed…etc.(I'll leave
those details out). Since they had to be tended to every few
hours, and Fox was working 15 hours a day on this movie…
he had no choice but to take the kittens with him to the
producer's home…unbeknownst to the producer. This kitty
daycare went undetected for about a month…until the
producer said…"Uh, what are those? Little green men?".
Said producer was very cool about Fox's need to deceive,
inveigle and obfuscate...even under his own roof. In fact, he
said he'd take two! Fox was amazed! Why would the producer do this?
How would he have time for 2 needy kittens? But he pushed those
doubts aside…he wanted to believe. And with Dana already
keeping one kitten, and Dana's friend, Muffin taking another, all the
kittens would have good homes! Well, as things sometimes go in
Hollywood…the deal fell through, leaving little Dutch with no place
to call home…and since I am that sucker who is born every minute…I
took him…his purr sounds like a marble in a blender…how could I resist.
He won't ever get to meet TomKat or BranGelina…but I will carry 30 lbs
of cat litter up 2 flights of stairs for him…so I think he'll be ok with me.
(But he does miss Fox & Dana!)
(ok, I'm not crazy...well, ok, I am, but within this blather are "hints"
for the geeks who loved the series and the previous movie...10 years
ago!...I cannot divulge, other than to say..the truth is out there....).
