One of the really great things about my commute to work (and there are so few "great things" about it) is that I walk by the ASPCA building on 92nd street on my way to the bus. In addition to seeing all the cool dogs and other various animals coming in and out of the doors (they have an elevator that fits horses!) there's a big window in the front where they keep all the cats. Every time I walk by, I say hello to all the kitties and, being of the feline persuasion, most of them ignore me. I'll occasionally get an unamused glare from one of them, but those are few and far between.
But last week, there was a new edition to the brood, a black and white kitty, named Eden. (She wears a collar with her name on it, that's how I know who she is.) She's perky and playful, and she always gets up to rub her head against the window when I put my finger up to the glass. Even when she's relaxing, she'll get up and stretch and come to the window to say hello. Thanks to the magic of the interwebs, I looked her up on the ASPCA website and here she is:
Now, I have too many cats already, otherwise I'd bring her home. But if anyone's looking for a pet, especially if you think cats are boring, lumps of fur who spend all day looking down on humans and snubbing any attempt at affection, you should TOTALLY adopt Eden. Her shots are up to date and she's already been fixed.
