Small furry spies amongst us

The Eyes of Reproach

The disaffected Himalayan-Persian mix cat has habits that indicate she is either

  • a spy
  • a student taking cultural anthropology classes

Facts that support the theory that she is a small Cata Hari:

  1. She’s always watching. [Think Santa Claus in a little mink outfit with dark brown gloves and boots staring at you.]
  2. She has learned to use bags hung on chairs as cover.
  3. She stares at sleeping people from the hallways.
  4. She pretends she does not understand anything anyone says.
  5. She sits on the landing so she can keep an eye on people upstairs and people on the second floor.
  6. She has an ultimate secret weapon that she wields occasionally when she feels threatened.*

Reasons that support the idea of the cat taking computer courses in cultural anthropology:

  1. All of the above except number 6.

So she’s probably a small, soft, sofa of a cat who is in training to be the next Jane Bond with Carol Channing’s stage dresser.

* Her “final solution”: Thinking outside the box, mercifully only on linoleum so far.

      I am sincerely sorry. You should hear us talking.
      “Who would think something so small could have so much bile?”
      5 pounds of malevolence, disguised as fur, that sometimes acts like it’s happy to be in the house.
      (Guess that might describe any cat of small size?)
