"Another Odd Couple"
Dana, our neighbor, brought home a stuffed cat.
Well, not exactly a stuffed cat, you know, a furry toy cat.
Her real cat, who has been living there,
must have been lonesome all along and didn't say anything.
It has initiated a serious relationship with the stuffed one.
The real cat spends a lot of time cleaning the stuffed one with its tongue,
a social thing with cats that never really caught on with people.
The stuffed cat's fake fur is getting all worn off around the ears, and other places.
This may be the first cat in history to cough up a polyester fur ball.
