His baseball-sized orange paws skim the keyboard as his purring body contorts into a position that exposes an expansive patch of striped belly. The tableau, which plays out in my home office on a near-daily basis, is a pleasant distraction from this week's reminder that my loyal companion is a natural born killer. </span></p> Wed, 30 Jan 2013 21:00:00 +0000 Tricia Woolfenden 8563 at http://wlrn.org Are Cats A Threat To Nature Or Simply Man's Favorite Scapegoat? House Cat-Odyssey Highlights The Mysteries Of Animal Migration http://wlrn.org/post/house-cat-odyssey-florida-highlights-mysteries-animal-migration Early in November, a tortoiseshell cat named Holly jumped out of her human family's RV in Daytona Beach, Florida, and ran off. After a fruitless search, the husband and wife returned home to West Palm Beach without their cat.<p>Holly showed up back in West Palm Beach, only a mile from her house, on New Year's Eve.

I mean, she really, really loves cats.</p><p>So, it came as no surprise to me that when planning a visit to Art Basel last week she decided her time would be best spent at<a href="http://www.o-cinema.org/event/art-meow-sel/" target="_blank"> Art Meow-sel&nbsp;in O Cinema</a>: a gallery dedicated solely to cat-related art.</p><p>It's weird, I know.
