The New York Times recently ran the letter below in their Metropolitan Dear Diary Section. As someone who is owned by three cats and understands them as well as any human can, the letter made me laugh.
Starting my walk home the balmy afternoon of Aug. 14 on West 85th Street, I spied a man with a cat on a leash.
Just the idea was funny enough for me, but the man was slumped against the wall, clearly exhausted, while the cat sat nearby, calmly washing her face.
I guess the cat won!
True yesterday, true today and most certainly true tomorrow: trying to walk a cat on a leash is almost NEVER a winning proposition.
