I have stayed away from cat blogging, even though I have cats that are photogenic. For instance this photo portrays the theocratic yoke of a council of clerics which has gone too far. Note the dramatic look in Oliver's eyes:
What lured me into the subject was a recent article in the Boston Globe about a cat named Oscar that seems to detect when death is near for Alzheimer's patients. His response is to jump on their beds and purr:
Is this an example of cat compassion?
I made a list of other things Oscar could be thinking:
- I call dibs on this bed.
- Dying people smell like tuna.
- This one's too weak to kick me off.
- Soon the rats will come and I will be ready.
May Oscar forgive me.
