SPRAT The QRP Cat

Two days ago, I visited Ham Radio Outlet in Oakland and came across this kitten that Nick, one of the employees, had found in the wheel-well of his truck in the parking lot. She spent the day in the store, following the employees around. Mark the store manager didn't want a store cat, so I said I would take her. I had been looking for a companion for Chala, a 10 year-old that I have just adopted, so the timing was perfect.

In homage to the GQRP club, a British club for low-power ham radio enthusiasts, I named her after their journal, which is called SPRAT. That is her ham radio name. Just as radio hams have a regular name and a callsign, Sprat's regular name is Sprout.
