My Interview With a Cat

It's Sunday night, so I'm going to take the easy way out and, instead of coming up with new content, I'll just  link to a post I did for Capitol Hill Blog. In what is either a new high or a new low (or simultaneously both?) in my "writing" "career," I have interviewed a cat.
CENSORED!: This guy is a surly little bastard...
The unedited conversation with Brindle Cat, a.k.a. Zulu, was a good bit longer and more intricate and filthier (and, I have to say, funnier). However, I will freely admit that giving more air time to a cat than to humans might seem a bit...well, tacky. In other words: the story of my life...

    I for one, am not surprised by Brindle Cat's responses. It leads me to speculate whether such dismissive behavior is inherent to all lotharios, regardless of the species.

    1. Yeah, he actually reminds me of some guys I used to know in New York, who were pretty much professional "flaneurs" with no discernible means of supporting themselves (presumably, there was a trust fund somewhere). Their opinions of women weren't that different from the things B.C. had to say about a certain promiscuous Calico...

    2. Perhaps Brindle Cat simply can't focus much, and lovemaking is the one place where his focus is not distracted?
