CAT AND MOUSE GAME ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
It was a cat-a-strophe of epic proportions this week at 7th and Montana as an Unfortunate Newcomer mounted a desperate search for her missing cat, a black and gray tabby named Lulu. She posted a sign offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to Lulu's return, but the sign itself disappeared one day later. That's because a Crusty Curmudgeon pulled up in a White Geo Metro, whipped out an Exacto Knife and ripped the sign away faster than you can say "Grinch." I called him on it. "Can I assume the cat has been found?," I asked. "No," he hissed, "But these signs are unacceptable. If we allow one, we have to allow them all and before you know it ..." "There won't be any lost pets?," I interrupted. "It's unsightly," he barked. Clearly, this guy had a major Pet Peeve. "What if it was your cat," I asked, "Wouldn't you want it returned?" But he just jumped back into his car and slammed the door. "What's the matter?," I called, "Cat got your tongue?!?" Lulu was last seen on Saturday near the corner of 16th and Georgina wearing a green collar.
