Clementine had never heard of the cats so I told her to read Momma's book, The Guide to Owning a Cornish Rex Cat, during the two-hour drive. (Sadly, it's no longer in print but it is available in many e-book formats.)
These two Cornies have been adopted by Momma's friend, science fiction and fantasy author extraordinaire Jennifer Roberson!

Anyway, Zena and Zoe had to find a new home and Jennifer jumped at the chance.
Jennifer was going to come get them but became ill at the last minute so off we went to the "rexcue."
I told Clementine we were rescuing Zena and Zoe, and she got excited thinking we were rescuing Xena, The Warrior Princess.
I was sorry to tell her that we were rescuing Zena not Xena, but that maybe Zena was a princess, too, because she was a Rex. (FYI, Rex is Latin for king.) That mollified Clementine somewhat.
I wanted to stop at Picacho Peak to show Clementine Arizona's Civil War battlefield, but she not-so-gently reminded me that she lived in Arizona long before me!

It was a quick trip and, sadly, I didn't get a chance to add Jennifer's autograph to my "collection."
Maybe next time.....
