This site was written by a cloth cat called Clementine. While it might be fun to see a stuffed cat puppet in court, if you believe anything she has to say you should really be thinking about suing your psychiatrist.

Clem has conformed enough to do a privacy policy. Whatever you do, don't try to sue Frederick the Frog. He's sensitive. And there is a precedent for a plague of frogs....
