Animal tales

I saw some cute animals today and yesterday, so I thought I'd share them with you.

I was walking back from Pilates yesterday when I passed a gay porn magazine store. This is not uncommon for the Village. However, I saw something unusual: a stuffed animal tossed carelessly in front of the magazines, just behind the front windows. It's a very small space.

Then I saw its mouth and realized it was a real cat! It was sound asleep, but its features were unmistakable. Then two older ladies approached and said, "It looks just like mine! I have a calico."

"I thought it was a stuffed animal at first," I told them.

"No, it's breathing!" And we saw its belly move, and it rolled over a little bit.

It must have been a funny sight, three women (two over sixty) gazing rapturously at a gay porn magazine display ;) The cat was adorable but probably not visible to the casual observer.

I also saw a pug with my name. I've encountered her before; she travels in a pack of five pugs. I met a pug named Cosmo today, who did a little sneeze in my face when he tried to kiss me. It was strangely endearing. And we can't forget Reba, the Wheaton who sat on my foot. "She doesn't want you to go," her father explained.

Happy Friday, everybody!

My first cat, Katy, was a calico. She had beautiful coloring.

I probably would've been one of those people walking down the street chuckling to myself about the three women oogling gay porn. lol
