or more formally, Lady Gertrude Dainty Paws, is
a lovely, very affectionate, female. She is fond of purring
herself into a stupor. A genuine lap kitty extrordinare,
Gertie often sits in CHU's lap while on the computer creating
many things for ClydeSight2.0! She likes to help. This
is why almost nothing gets done. It's not her fault, but
eventually, she will have to learn to stop pressing the
DELETE key on the computer!
Note that she has a white tip on her tail. This is one of the few ways to tell her
apart from her brother. As you can see, the Spirit of Clyde is not lost on her, and
she has begun to show some mewsical development. Sitting on the synthesizer is a

Gert and Eddie Contest
Edward Pussycat, or Eddie for short, is a
polydactyl (yep, just like Clyde! Could the Spirit of
Clyde be at work in him? ) and a highly athletic and
energetic kitten. Twin to Gertrude, he is affectionate
and loving, though not as much a lapper as Gert. But
she is teaching him an important lesson, to wit, "If
you sit in a corner and act aloof, you get ignored."
Perhaps this is just a phase he is going through. Eddie
is a handsome cat, and though his purr is not as loud
as Gert's, he is a "rubber". Yep, he likes
to rub and rub against any part of you that he can get
near. He also has a trick. He bites water dripping from
the faucet. He also likes to drink water from a glass,
if his face doesn't get stuck in it! He is very fond
of fruit juice. Go figure, huh?
Values. The family that sleeps together is usually
caught napping. Here, Gert rests her head on Eddie's
back. As you can see, he has more spots than stripes,
another important clue in telling them apart. In the
dark, this distinction is useless.
the close companions they are, Gert and Eddie play together
a lot. Of course, as with all children, there are the
occasional fights over toys. Being members of ClydeSight2.0!,
they have been showered with presents and toys so there
are plenty to go around. But, "the grass is always
greener on the other side", so whatever Gertie
has, Eddie wants, and vice-versa. The chair, however,
is one toy they can share together with no problem.
That's because it is green on both sides. At the moment,
they are both on top of the chair, limiting its play
value. But, usually, one of them gets underneath and
"strikes" from below. Eddie is particularly
fond of chasing Gertie's tail. By the way, this chair
was Clyde's favorite. They discovered it almost immediately,
and it is not unusual to find Eddie napping there.
Gertrude and Eddie came from a shelter in Massachusetts.
that Gert and Eddie needed to go to a good home where they would be loved
and adored (well, Gert and Eddie expected that anyway). Both were
raised from birth in the care and love of humans; they
stayed for a while in the gentle care of the local shelter and they
are completely trusting and affectionate. They have
never learned fear. To them, as with the three little
maids from school in the opera, The Mikado, "Life
is a joke that's just begun!"
After hearing the sad tail of Clyde, the counselors at
the shelter were convinced that ClydeSight2.0! was the place for
them. The folks say they knew CHU would be good for them
when CHU said, "I need to meet them, of course, and
they must like me. Otherwise, no matter how much I love
them, they won't be happy."
When CHU went to interview with Eddie and Gert, there
was no question of the match. Gert crawled into CHU's
lap and purred, and Eddie climbed into CHU's raincoat.
Though they will never replace Clyde (who was wonderful
and unique), Gert and Eddie have been remarkably influenced
by his spirit, and have brought, and continue to bring,
joy to CHU. As little kitty angels, they are healing the
wounds of Clyde's loss in CHU, and ClydeSight2.0! is a
happy place once more.
