We watched two cats confront each other, which I found hilarious, and I’ve just spent the better part of ten minutes trying to figure out how I wanted to describe it. I was aiming for too grandiose, I think, so here’s the simplified version:
There was a white cat on the sidewalk and a black cat five or six steps above it on the walk to someone’s front door. The white cat meowed at the black cat, but the black cat was having none of it. It kept up a steady low warning growl while the white cat meowed piteously. I can only assume the white cat was trying to apologize for something awful it did, and the black cat was like, no way, dude, you had your chance. The white cat followed us a couple of houses down and then settled on the neighbor’s front stoop staring back in the direction of the black cat, literally claiming the high ground.
I wish I knew what they were saying.
