Pet of the Week- Fred

9.4.2017 Pet of the Week--Fred

Hi there Super Senior Fred the Cat here! My Super Power is “Zen” because I have a calm manor about me. I take whatever comes my way and go with the flow! I am around 12 years young as I’d like to say. I was found abandoned outside the shelter one day and well I am so very thankful for second chances. The Folks here cleaned me up and helped me get vet checked now I am on my hunt for a loving home and someone share the rest of my days with. I am considered a “Special Needs” adoption because I may need dental work in the future. I don’t have much in my wish list but I do like sunny windows and a warm cozy bed.

If you would open up your home and heart to a Senior Kitty like me stop by the shelter to meet me to see if I am a good match.   To see Fred and all of the other available dogs and cats at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please go to our website:

The New Yorker Magazine- Louis Menand checks out Gloucester TS Eliot House


Not surprisingly, the Eliot House writers’ retreat is getting some major ink. Pulitzer Prize winning author, Louis Menand, writes about his visit this past spring, fleshing out some context and the mission of the T.S. Eliot Foundation. I’d tweak the title “one paradox”. Menand has written about Eliot before: his first published book was Discovering Modernism: T. S. Eliot and His Context, 1987.

“…Eliot’s father, Henry, who ran a company that manufactured bricks, took the family to Massachusetts every summer, and in 1896, the year Eliot turned eight, Henry built a big house on Cape Ann, in Gloucester, overlooking the outer harbor. Until Eliot went off to Europe, in 1914, he spent his summers there…”
