Today is the World Cat Day and this is the obligatory post about cats.
I am usually described as a cat person. Ever since I was two years old I never spent a single day in my life without a cat.
My house cats when I was in Turin, and after moving here beyond the black stump in Astigianistan, the community cats that have elected my courtyard as their playground/safe space/whatever.
In the last few years the locals have also started to use this area of the village as the dumping ground for unwanted litters of kittens – and basically the feral cat population is growing steadily.
One of these days they’ll realize they are the majority, and will seize the power.
And it would be an improvement.
Anyway, as we are at it, let me suggest a good book to you cat lovers out there.
The Cat Owner’s Manual covers everything you need to know about the maintenance and day-to-day operation of your cat. The book covers hardware, software and advanced options.
It was written by Dr David Brunner, a card-carrying veterinarian, and it’s both fun and useful. Because we need to take good care of our little feline overlords.
Have a nice World Cat Day.
