Remembering Cosmi

In the spring of 1998, three DC teachers signed on to work with Ethel Beun and her newly-formed project, a cat room above a store, a back room where she took in rescues, strays and wild wild kitties of every variety. And it was wild. At that point the hobby had grown out-of-control to nearly seventy cats, many from the alleys of DC. They had names like Ray-Ray and the Gang, and Clyde, a little bruiser who hated humans but for some reason was adored by other cats.
