The Cat That Wouldn't Go Jogging

Meet Stella, the very handsome rescue cat! Stella is adventurous and outdoorsey. But she is not a fan of jogging, and so her owner was ticketed this week "on suspicion of tethering his cat to a rock after the pet refused to go jogging with him." Cats. What can you do.

"According to police radio traffic, the cat was being attacked by a flock of birds while it was tied to the rock."

Why didn't the birds get ticketed??

@deepomega Do what you will with this…They were canada geese. Resident canada geese. Stealing cat harrying jobs from our native inland pelicans.

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the fact that the "We Demand More Cats on The Awl" campaign is getting more pick-up than the "We Demand an Awl on The Awl" movement.

I demand more cauls on cats.

That's actually a series of frames from a cat-universe version of the "Ring" videotape, right?

I demand more cats. Give the people what they want!

Cats are good as dog toys. Beyond that, they're just furniture-clawing, small-object-soccering, indoor-plant-besmirching, middle-of-the-night-genital-batting good-for-nothing tuna junkies. Andthey won't jog with you. Try telling a dog tonot jog with you. The sadness would be tectonic. My cat could care less about her minimum responsibilities catching the errant mice running across the stove, preferring instead to keep me awake by the afore-mentioned batting of the junk. Unfortunately, my dog takes nights off from cat-herding duty.

I taught my cat to walk on a leash. She is very proficient at it, keeping pace with me. We would walk all the way from kitchen to bedroom and do laps in the living room. In time she enjoyed walking on a leash. Eventually I took her out in the hallway to practice outside. It was at that time that I realized that my amenable cat never ever wanted to leave the house, ever. Occasionally though I'll pull out the harness and leash, and we'll take a walk around the apartment, just because we can.
