Cindy’s State Of The Cat Address

A stray cat walks through fallen leaves on Roosevelt Avenue Tuesday afternoon. In observation of National Feral Cat Day, Timberlake Litter Control in Spirit Lake will be holding a 2-day, $25 spay/neuter event. Story here. Press story. (Coeur d'Alene Press photo: Gabe Green)

Reader feedback regarding my foray into political analysis (“One parent’s humble fix for Congress,” Oct. 3) has been decidedly mixed with the majority of emails chiding me for my less than serious take on the government shutdown. You might think I’d be dismayed by this chilly reception. You might imagine that I’d scurry back to safer topics like autumn leaves or little boys. You’d be wrong. Instead, I’m going to revisit one of the most contentious topics a columnist can write about. A subject so controversial that when last I addressed it (July 19, 2012, for those keeping track at home) a reader wrote, “Cindy – I was angry and even embarrassed with your article in today’s Valley Voice….” That’s right. It’s time for a State of the Cats address/Cindy Hval, SR. More here.

Question: Are cat owners more tolerant than dog owners?
