When the woman and the dogs started up their driveway, just a house away from where the cats had plopped on the sidewalk, one of my felines stood up and started walking toward them. I got in front of her. The woman and her dogs made a wide arc en route to their door. Maybe she’d heard the story.
There’d been at least one witness. A few weeks after The Incident, the kitties and I were passing the place where it had occurred when a car pulled up to the curb and a man and woman got out.
“Are these the attack cats?” he asked.
“Yes,” I said, a little warily.
He laughed. “I never saw anything like it,” he said.
“You saw it?”
“From my living room window. If I’d had a minicam, we could have split the ten thousand dollars!”
