I'm doing a stupid little story involving cats to take my mind off the big thing for a bit and the first line is already giving me issues. How would a cat address several other cats? "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury" doesn't seem like the way to go. "Mollies and toms of the jury" isn't working for me either and I only just now found out that a female cat is called a molly, unless she is pregnant, in which case she is called a queen and I sure as Hell ain't doing that. Any suggestions?
