For a long time, our cat Cy’s greatest passion in life was his fruitless pursuit of the gerbils. Since the untimely demise of the gerbils (who died of old age, I should mention), Cy’s favorite pursuit has been chasing the light from the laser pointer. He has been no more successful in capturing it than he was with the gerbils. Well, it seems he’s found a new Impossible Dream to dream; namely, the pigeons who have begun roosting on the window sill of the apartment building next door. He sits there softly chirping his excitement as he follows their every move.
