Has anyone seen previous? girls star and cat of Red Hook resident Jemima Kirke? He escaped. Kirke, who is surprisingly active on Nextdoor, posted about his disappearance earlier this week. There are some twists and turns, so buckle up.
mr. Chips is apparently a sneaky little crook who’s gotten away on a few occasions, most recently “while a new nanny… left the front door ajar for a few seconds too long.” Then Mr. Chips was found. Except when the nanny went to pick him up, “he clawed at her and wouldn’t follow her home.” So then another person offered to take him home until someone could pick up Mr. Chips. Subsequently, Kirke was unable to contact this person because the phone number given to her by a “third party” (what?) Kirke, who jumped to conclusions, “was convinced it had been stolen.”
More than two days later, she tried a random number on her missed calls list from the day he went missing. (I would have done the same two days ago.) Then this person, whom Kirke previously liked, was now “furious” because she thought Kirke was neglecting her cat. (Kirke is not a negligent cat owner, she just ignores her missed call log!)
If you thought this was all going to get wrapped up then and there, you’re wrong. “Minutes” after these texts were exchanged, neighbor Kirke informed her that she had let Mr. Chips go because he was arguing with another cat. Kirke “didn’t understand this decision given her previous concern and concern.”
Kirke looked for food and left it out, but Mr. Chips still has not returned. She fears Mr. Chips’ street wisdom “isn’t as strong as they were after months inside.” (Recognizable.)
Kirke is, of course, aware that people may feel that Mr. Chips has been “neglected” and needs to be “rehoused”. Hopefully this novel from a Nextdoor post changes that perception. If your mr. Chips somewhere in Red Hook, find a way to contact Jemima Kirke. (Except calling her because she might not respond for days.)
