A cat jumps in and out of my landing window. I know when this happens. I hear the thud and know instantly the feline has landed.
Yesterday, I mentioned this to my neighbour – owner of said cat.
Today, he calls to the door. He wants to tell me there are in fact two cats. They look the same but his has white under its chin. That both of them may be jumping through my window simultaneously. He just thought I should know.
I look at him.
He look at me.
For what seems like an eternity.
I break the silence by saying “And what would you like me to do with this information once I identify which is which? Give them different punishments?”
“Hmmmmm”, says he. “This was pretty pointless information wasn’t it?”
“Hmmmmm”, says I. “Pretty much!”
