Cajun Tails: Cats About Town

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“In order to keep a true perspective of one’s importance, everyone should have a dog that will worship him and a cat that will ignore him.”

  Strolling through New Orleans there are quite a few cats about the town. Jazz cats, royal cats or window cats. Maggie inquisitively asked me if this was true. My reply was yes indeed. On Royal Street by the hotel we stayed at, Hotel Monteleone in the French Quarter, one art gallery had a beautiful cat just sitting there watching the people go by. He or she looked like a fine piece of art beneath the shop’s sign. If people fawned over this cat it remained regal like its namesake street: Royal.

I like cats. Maggie does too. I told her about another shop in the French Quarter called Louisiana Loom Works. Although their Yelp review states they have 7 or 8 cats in the shop we only saw 3 through the shop’s window. All were sleeping. It was night time after all. The cat in the window acknowledged me and then proceeded to go back to sleep. Pretty kitty. New Orleans has the coolest cats. Each cat exhibits their own “cool” demeanor in their own way.

Maggie especially liked the cat in the window. It reminded her of her cat friend Gabby. This is a cool cat from California. Maggie’s neck of the woods. Maggie can worship me or her tennis ball all she wants. When we want “cool”, we can check out the cats who ignore us. This helps us keep our perspective of who’s really important. Maggie and I decided that inside cats worship us, but they just keep it to themselves, while dogs can’t keep a secret as they slobber all over you.

    When my bipeds have been out, I always make a fuss of them when they come home. Our cats just look up as if to say, “keep the noise down, I was asleep!”
