I’ll admit, I like cats. They know how to fight, for starters. Jujitsu champions. They also know how to relax. Enjoy life. And their clan structure is really cool.

As a species, cats took it hard in the Big One. I guess we all did but the SPCA didn’t have the funding to deal with the problem.

Growing up on the streets, I shared food with more than a few cats. I have a feeling that’s going to pay off in the future … somehow. You know, like karma. But that’s not why I did it.

I just like ’em, even though their idea of reciprocity is to bring me half-dead rats in the night.
