At the cat shrine


Here is a picture I took down by the river bluffs, in the morning, when the shore was frozen.

Actually, the picture I took wasn't much like this one, before I started adding things, and dreaming things, and ended up with a cat shrine.

A cat shrine.

There are nearly as many cats as there are dogs in my country. But I see dogs all the time. I only see cats on special occasions, sequestered as they are.

I think there are wonderful dogs and wonderful dog owners. But those are not the standard. And I think cats are...


But I believe this, even if it might sound like a joke:

If human beings loved cats far more than we do dogs,  we would make it through. 

But it's sixty-forty to the dogs; loyal, suggestible, territorial, hierarchical, and barking dogs, 

and we are doomed.

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.
