Here’s another question for you—what is it about cats that make them good to have in mysteries? There are other stories out there that feature cat sleuths or sidekicks.
Cats do look at one with all-knowing eyes, or so it seems. Do they see into the misdeeds of us humans?
Even Diamond and Smokey, the little 11-week old outside kittens, settle down and stare at me when I talk to them. Sometimes the stare is bored, sometimes a bit contemptuous, sometimes wise. They are too young to keep their feelings a secret from their caretaker.
Momma cat, Charcoal, is a different story. She solved the mystery of finding a home when someone cast her out, young and pregnant. She might have the bored, wise stare, but doesn’t show the contemptuous part. She is too smart for that.
By the way, anyone want to adopt one or two adorable, gangly, gray youngsters who can perhaps read your mind?
Warning: Don’t agree if you contemplate committing a crime.
Who knows…they might be the future sleuth kitties of the world, although I don’t think either have all the extra whiskers that Braun gave Koko to give him special abilities.
