I believe it was Henry.
He was a great big tomcat. He was extremely affectionate, but if you let him sit in your lap he would purr and drool. We never had him neutered, because he was an indoor cat and he never figured out to spray, even when his sister was in heat.
She got locked in a room and then taken to the vet for spaying. She wasn't pregnant. I loved that vet. This was back in the '70s. I asked how long I had to keep her from food and water and he said, "Don't bother. We'll keep her in a cage overnight and know for sure that she didn't find and food or water." I know that's fairly common practice now, but it was unheard of back then.
