Charlene Hoyt is a math teacher at nearby Berwick Academy. The lobster was named "Cal" because someone thought he looked like a calico cat. He was placed in the grammar school touch tank and the kids just loved him.

Charlene started feeling sad for Cal. He spent the entire month of September in the tank with his claws banded.
