I’ve said this before. There are a lot of stray cats where I live and around nine o’clock in the morning, there’s still rush hour traffic. Approaching 10th & Madison, walking to the left of the street, I saw this cat—much like the one in the GIF—trying to cross the street.
There was a ton of traffic. I watched the cat walk, see a car and run back, then start again, dodge a car, then start again, dodge another car, start again and so on and so on.
I stood there in horror, maybe for 30 seconds, watching this cat. I was scared to death, afraid I was going to witness the cat getting creamed by a car. I know I said out loud, “Be careful!”
To my relief, the cat made it across the street. Once he got to the safety of the sidewalk, he turned and looked at me, sort of with the expression on his face like “I can’t believe I just did that.”
I do believe cats have nine lives and they need all of them here in Covington.
