    Sometimes my cat looks like an owl. But I could never fasten a hat on her.

    What is it with pets and hats? When I was wee, my fondest desire involved our Dalmatian and a hat.

    My desire was never realized.

    Did the owl-holder knit the owl-hat specially, I’m wondering? Or is there a source for off-the-rack standard-sized owl hats?

    I had a biology teacher in high school who, apart from being dismissed from his position because of his tendency to get enraged and hit a piece of plywood he kept on the counter in the lab with a hammer*, had a theory that humans find all things with big eyes cute. “It’s why we think babies are cute, their eyes are too big for their heads.” We asked him about babies that weren’t cute and he slammed the hammer on the plywood.

    *the hammer and plywood were placed there by him at the beginning of class just so he could do something when he got angry.

    Dang, reminds me of the junior high school history teacher who told us that the cleanest place on earth was the inside of a dog’s mouth.

    India would look cute in a little knitted hat like that, though I’d choose different colors for her.
