Named for the shimmer of the starlight off the water of Shimmer Lake, where we live. The camp is on an island in the lake - a series of stepping stones and fallen logs leads there.

A little lesson in biology:
Pet cats are generally said to live 10 - 15 years (120 - 180 moons). However, cats living mostly in the wild live about 7 years (84 moons).
Cat pregnancy typically lasts for 63 - 65 days. It becomes noticeable at about 30 days. At 49 to 51 days, queens go into nesting mode.
Three of the most common health problems that affect cats are
fleas, tapeworm, and poor eyesight (variety of causes).
"Why is that bad things happen to good cats?" asks my character.
I reply, "the forces that control you are insane."
