Not a review of a cat store


I don't believe I have ever been to a cat store. You know, a store for cat... things. And so I am not keen to review the first one I have ever been to. It seems too precious, and delicate, and dear. And I want to nurture it. I want any cat store to survive in a cruel world that is not kind to strange and miraculous things. 

Like some first, tiny rare flower I might have always longed to see, there the store Cat aMewsement was, shining like a holy grail in one of our old neighborhoods, St. Anthony Park.

It was open where the bookstore used to be.

So my wife and I went delightedly in!

Pinch me. A real life cat store!

And it sort of sucked.

This is not a review.

Like that tiny rare flower when you first see it and say, wait, this is the flower? Why doesn't it have any colors or petals? Maybe I am color blind? So it was Cat aMewsement didn't have any cats. It did have some cat products and products for cats, I guess, all of which were not interesting.

It also had, and I can't emphasize this enough, a dog section.

This is not a review.

Two stars.

Cat aMewsement is doing god's work!

Not particularly well at all.

This is not a review.

It is a tale of woe.

  1. What a disappointment, a "cat store" without cats. With a section for dogs, as if they didn't think too much of themselves already. And in a former bookstore! I give it six months, tops.
    Some years back that SA neighborhood had a very nice ice cream and candy store. I was very fond of it because when taking the #3 bus from the U to my home in Como, I could take the 3A, get of in SA, get and eat a dish of ice cream cream and continue my trip on the 3B bus. That store closed.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
