â€śIâ€™d like to try yoga.â€ť
Fido lay at my feet, watching a yoga program on television.
â€śWell, itâ€™s not unheard of,â€ť I said. â€śPeople and dogs who do yoga together call it doga. They swear by it.â€ť
â€śTell me more, please,â€ť Fido said.
â€śI will, but only if you tell me about this wild-hair of an idea first.â€ť
â€śOh, I donâ€™t know, but I figure winterâ€™s coming up pretty soon. There will be lots of days that just wonâ€™t be very pleasant outdoors, so Iâ€™m looking for something to do in here.â€ť
â€śFair enough, Fido.â€ť
He leapt to his feet.
â€śHey hey hey hey! When can we start?â€ť
â€śI think we should maybe invite a cat into our home.â€ť
Honestly, I thought I was hearing things.
â€śFido, what did you just say?â€ť
â€śMaybe we should get a cat.â€ť
You could have knocked me over with a feather. There have been plenty of cool cats cross my path over the years. There was Buster, for example, over in the East Bay, and there was the cat in Cedar Rapids that caught everyoneâ€™s attention. His name was Director.
There were dozens of others.
There have been disasters, too, such as that Cat Who Shall Not Be Named.
