I heard the loudest cat in the world the other morning. I was sitting at my desk working when some cat started meowing. It was so loud I thought it was in the room with me for half a second. (It wasn’t.) I checked outside both office windows, but didn’t see a cat. I checked the backyard – no cat (unusual, considering how often we see cats in our yard). I eventually found it, sitting on the hood of our neighbor’s car, facing our living room window (which is as far away as you can get from my office), yowling its head off.
I meowed at it. It meowed back, and that was the end of the conversation. Maybe it just needed someone to acknowledge its existence. You exist, kitty. Now shut up.
