Our cat is called Hodge. She is called after the cat my family had when I was a child. That cat in turn was called after Samuel Johnsonâ€™s cat.
This afternoon, the children had some friends to visit. Over dinner, they mentioned their cat. “What’s it called?” we asked. “Bakunin” said the five year old. “My father is an anarchist,” explained the eight year old. Retired, I’d say.
