She once appeared in an episode of “The Twlight Zone” with an actor who later lived in Spokane.
Ms. Newmar, that is. Don't know anything about the cat's credits.
Yes, I realize that this is a ludicrous attempt at localizing, even by Slice Blog standards. But there are men of a certain age who have a bit of a thing about this particular Catwoman. And they are welcome here.
She tolerates me but probably wonders why I'm not on the phone with National Geographic about her or working on a coffee table book called “House Cats of Spokane's Kalahari.”

Sometimes our neighbor's cat appears on the front porch as if Scotty beamed her down from the starship Enterprise.
One moment you're checking the mailbox or whatever and she's nowhere to be seen. And then, out of thin air, she materializes at your feet. If the door is cracked open, she might just appear as a gray blur on her way in to investigate opportunities for seafood treats.
But last night, I could tell she was coming.
Long after dark, I opened the front door and looked out. That's when I heard it.
The sound out there in the blackness was not really a rustling. It was more like a fast series of little splashes.
She was on her way. But because the yard is covered with leaves from our maple tree, I could hear her running. The leaves robbed her of her usual stealth.
I guess it's about time to do a little raking.
I'm sure there are plenty of Spokane neighborhoods still monitored by someone looking out the window along the lines of Gladys Kravitz in “Bewitched.”

“What did she say?”
“She said Tattoo Man across the street is out in his front yard sans shirt again.”
