I suppose you and Zack are in the same class, eh? Poe's cat's name was "Catterina" and in some letters from Poe to Virginia or Maria Clemm, he often referred to the cat as "Kate". I read somewhere he also kept one or two birds.

As well as a pet raven Poe also had two cats,Catterina and Pluto. Poe wrote a composition on Pluto called "The Black Cat." You might be interested in that story. -Lisa 15 years of age
