Slush, the feral cat who adopted us, loved a good lullaby. This was no indoor cat. We made him a cozy den on our front porch, which he used on the coldest winter nights. I fed him each evening, and then we’d sit on the cold stoop together, him nestled in my lap, soft snow falling on his gray fur.
NOTE: Besides “The Coventry Carol,” he also was partial to “Hush Little Baby” and “Dona Nobis Pacem.”
