Here's an excerpt:
Hucklesby and I are out for our twilight walk up the mountain. Will I see Moonlight this time?

Regret, however, is a bitter companion. I prefer cats.
Like Hucklesby. A gray cat the color of twilight on a misty day. Though I might have been accompanied by other cats on my road not taken, none of them would have been my Hucklesby. He lives with me in my cabin in the woods but comes along on my twilight walks and never runs astray.
