670: Hiding in Plain Sight

I honestly thought everyone was in on this except Dad, but this spring I caught my mom telling the story of how they'd gotten Octavious Agustus, as my older sister renamed him, (for the 8 shape on one side of his body, though she mainly calls him Gus, yes this is a Cinderella reference), the mad emperor and she actually told it like Gus wouldn't come out of hiding for me. I corrected her, because I figure 5 years after that fact she can't be mad at my sister for using sly means to get herself another cat that then had to live with my parents for another 4 years. I was right.  Though for years my dad has wanted me to swap him with my Rab Cat.
