A Men and Cats reader alerted me to this sweet essay on the NY Times blog about a man’s love for his cat. “I lived with the same cat for 19 years — by far the longest relationship of my adult life.” A Man and His Cat By TIM KREIDER
How cute is this photo of Chris and his cat, King? You must read the story on the ASPCA blog about how Chris came to adopt King. Chris read about King in a newspaper that had been left behind in a restaurant! We hope they have long and happy lives together.
This might just be the greatest thing I’ve ever seen.
