The Catscape

As a consummate cat lover, the cat situation here is very difficult to stomach.

Cats here are treated as vermin, and pretty much are. They’re underweight, dirty, and often covered with sores. They eat out of dumpsters and are anything but domesticated. Restaurant owners shoo them off of verandas and children twirl them around by their tails or commit equally horrendous offenses. PETA would be horrified!

It’s a reflex to say “Hi kitty!” or “kitty, kitty!” when I pass a cat, but here I just can’t say it.

Jordan’s highly-publicized and corporate-sponsored first national cat show took place on Friday, and after weeks of speculation about whether we would go, Ying and I decided to pass.

The cat show even has its own facebook page!
