The BabyBlueCafe's house cat, Madeleine, sits in a chair and purrs while WTOP News Radio (Washington DC) plays in the background. The short film was made using the LG Lotus cellphone camcorder.
Madeleine - or Maddie - is named after author Madeleine L'Engle. She is a nine-year-old Maine Coon Cat who was rescued as a little baby kitten from a house fire by very kind firemen who took her in their firetruck to the local vet, where she was joyfully adopted by BB. To this day she hides when sirens and flashing lights are near, or when the Gracie Mansion Yule Log shows up on TV.
Maddie made her debut at the Cafe on November 8, 2006, and prefers Purina's Friskies for dinner.
