Cat Scratch Fever PDF

by Connie Brockway Setting: Cupid Cats Shelter, in Chicago; from New York; Genetic’s office building; international restaurants; Jim and Chloe’s home; his parent’s backyard;

Theme: falling in love again; raising a child; a bit of magic;

Characters:
Jim Curran: ‘talking’ head for a genetic research company; Chief visionary officer; married 8 happy years, but lost wife in child birth; moved from New York to Chicago so his daughter would be with family – parents, 3 sisters, cousins, etc; but as youngest, she was getting very spoiled – so he moves a few miles away; he loved and mourned his wife;

Chloe Curran: cute, smart, wonderful, loving, spoiled, full of temper, 5 year old daughter; she is convinced the older cat at the shelter is the same cat her mother had; and logically thinks that if she visits cat often enough, the cat will get used to her, and go home with her;

‘Steph’ Stephanie Curran: Jim’s first wife – bright, light, outgoing, full of temper, cussing, loving;

Melissa Bandetti: Jim’s older, controlling sister; indulges Chloe; sets Jim up with Steph kinda the sames; doesn’t like Edie;

Dr. Edith ‘Edie’ Handelman: research department head; empirical and rational, her life defined by order, cleanliness, and reason; she is socially inept (having gone into high school at 12, and college at 14 – 3 degrees); and takes things literal; had engaged to a scientist for 2 years, but when found out she couldn’t have children, he withdrew – as he felt his superior genes needed progeny; sheundle had looked forward to being a mom, and had read about it… and when confronted with Chloe she is an interesting bundle of responses – she talks to her like an adult, she walks out of the room if she has a tantrum, she listens to her and values what she says;

Pixie-Ishy / Ishy-Pixie: a subtly magic cat… brings Jim to the shelter after a date with a steph substitute, to a lonely Edie; at end, when Edie hiding out from jim, and Chloe sneaks out, cat brings her to shelter – and puts here to sleep on meet and greet couch, with a see through woman, who tells the cat that they are there for love, and place a kitten on Chloe’s lap;

Summary:
Jim and Edie – Edie has a crush on Jim, but can’t conceive that he would be attracted to her… and from day one, Jim has been fascinated with her… and the more time they spend together, the more he sees her charms… and it takes some doing to get her to join them for meals (but he does find her weakness for international foods)… and then one night, Chloe leaves her doll at the shelter (cats’s doing?), and Chloe is out with aunt… and Edie walks over, to return doll… and she and Jim end up kissing – and though interrupted – when Jim shows up in her office the next day, prepared to only accept a yes when he asks her out on a real date, she smiles at him, and says yes (she figures out he does like her that way)… and after charming meal and walk through park, a kiss at her door leads to a lot more … and a few weeks of great sex and being together (with Chloe too), he takes her to Chloe’s 6th birthday party at his parents, with 50 relatives… and she’s very uncomfortable… but most like her just fine… but then she overhears his sister Melissa gossiping about her, saying she is the anti-stephanie etc … she leaves, she avoids him for a week… and then Chloe ends up at the shelter (cat’s help)… Jim calls Edie – Edie finds Chloe asleep in her back room – he runs over – reassured she is okay – takes Edie in his arms, and wants to know what is happening… and they live happily ever after.

Memorable scenes:
When Chloe met Edith, Chloe thinks an older cat is her mother’s cat, Pixie; but Edith corrects her and says the cats name is Ishy; when Chloe claims it is a mean name, Edith tells her it is a diminutive for Moby Dick’s Ishmael… next time they get together, Chloe calls her Edie.And response?: “Edie?” Edith’s eyes rounded.No one had ever called her Edie. “It’s a fond dimmytive,” Chloe explained patiently.Edith felt herself flushing.

After turning down dinner again… and they are going home… “Chloe looked over her father’s shoulder and waved.Behind her, Ishy-Pixie yowled plaintively.Stupid cat.She wouldn’t go with them, so what right did she have to complain?”(stupid cat or stupid Edie?)
