There was an accident?

Thistlethwaite does not like to talk about it.

In 2005, there was an incident involving a cat, a bathtub, and a laptop computer. Certain computer files and website access codes were destroyed.

There were no backup files.

Alcohol was a factor.

The cat was fond of Baileys.

The result was that the website was plunged into darkness for a decade and that the printing template for the Thistlethwaite chapbook was irretrievably lost.

The name of the cat was Katsu! He died of cirrhosis in 2007.
