Let me turn you on to something.
On October 29, this Sunday, it’s @NationalCatDay which looks like just an excuse to indulge in feline adoration. As if the 74,059,000 owners, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, need an excuse.
I love cats. (I love dogs as well, but I have my finger on the scale for cats. I have friends who have their entire fists on the scale for dogs so we’re even.)
When I went to Istanbul in 2015, I found a city overrun with cats. Respected and loved by the Turks, stray cats fed by the locals (who enjoy mouse policing) and many tourists who enjoy the purr! So I wrote a piece about my trip, including a slide show.
You will l notice that there are two pictures of dogs in this collection. The Freer|Sackler exhibit includes canine influences in Egypt as well.
So now, at the end of this fantastically busy month of October, we have #NationalCatDay, celebrating our feline buddies.
In honor of that, I’ll share my favorite cat picture of this year: Chunky who has a “taste” for Apple iWatches.
Chunky was up for adoption at the local Petsmart where I volunteer. Lively and a true purr engine, he was taken home by a good family. I only hope they were PC users.
Finally, so sorry not to be updating this blog more often. It’s not that I haven’t written. It just hasn’t been posted. I will attempt to be more timely.
Happy #NationalCatDay !!
