My neighbor's cat thinks I am losing my mind.
She didn't need to say a word. Her expression said it all.
Because of some temporary garage issues, I moved three bicycles into our small dining room right next to the back door.
When the cat came in for a snack not long after the bike relocation, she looked at them. Then she looked at me.
I had no trouble reading her mind: “Poor old guy, he's really losing it. These don't belong in here.”
