Uncle Reed loved animals. Cats especially. I remember Bobby-he was an American Lynx. Adopted as a kitten (or kit--unsure of the correct term) by Uncle Reed and
Aunt Myrtle who shared the love in their home for many years. They are great examples how the proper treatment and love of animals elevates all. He also had a fish terrarium, which he treasured--and yes, they were safe from Bobby!
