Cats and the future of mankind
There are lots of stupid stuff one reads in the Metro, it is as ligh a read as one can find. But I guess that's what happens with a free newspaper. I read it mainly for Nemi. But then there is the odd article that for some reason makes me cheerful (like when I read about the hobbit home made by a Welsh family). This interview with James Bowen, a man I knew nothing about, got my attention like this. That he got off the street and off an heroin addiction because of a cat, I find it both moving and fitting. However I can despair of mankind, I never despair of cats. They are superior creatures. For some reason, they have not taken over this world. I think they would make a better job than us. But in any case, they make our civilisation a bit more civilised.
