Why "CHATS?" Because we want this to be more than a one-way blog. We want to build some real chatter about various types of shared housing in general and about cooperative householding in particular.
And it's a play on words--something we all enjoy. "Chats" in French mean "cats" in English. So our MHOH blog name honors our two furry friends: Beardsley who was the tuxedo cat-alyst behind our friendship and Kali, her black successor who lives up to her name as the goddess of destruction.
