Notes from a parish cat and his author Julie Mackenzie
- Fr. Tom Fish
- I am Father Tom Fish, esteemed member of the religious team at Temptation of Christ Parish in the novels by author Julie Mackenzie. As to my background, I was invited into the rectory as a stray, laid on the charm, and was invited to stay, even honorarily ordained and no less spiritual than my sidekick Father Will. He dotes on me to high heaven and forgives all of my street cat proclivities, whatever the hell that means.

(Cue organ music and fade..)
Tom (aka Chopin): Well, I've just about had it.
Tinker: Had it? About what?
Tom: All these humans wanting to run our country. The drama is raising my blood
Tinker: Yours? I'm so stressed out, I can't hear myself think.
Tom: Nobody can actually hear themselves think.
Tinker: You have to pick at what I say. Why do you get technical when I'm trying to make a point?
Tom: I can't help it. Here I am, quanderizing about the state of our world and you're saying stupid stuff.
Tinker: Quanderizing? What the hell is that? Let ye who is without sin cast the first stone. Or, have you forgotten?
Tom: Since I AM without sin, you better duck, wise man!
