The last time I spoke with Michael on the phone in early April 2021 he told me that when he got his cat he did not know if the cat was male or female. He wanted to name the cat after his parents so he called the cat Kosta -Maria. Michael said he later found out the cat was a female and named her Nefertiti. While I was speaking to Michael he kept calling his cat Kosta Maria and telling me she is seeking his attention.
