Year Of The Cat?

    "Yes, it's true. It's finally the year of the cat," says Ms. Bella

And The New York Times agrees. It seems that there's a plethora of cat books new to the market: April alone saw the publication of "Lost Cat: A True Story of Love, Desperation, and GPS Technology,  "Another Insane Devotion: On the Love of Cats and Persons", and "The Cat Whisperer: Why Cats Do
What They Do-And How To Get Them To Do What You Want" (good luck, we say). But we think the real tipping point in favor of a 2013 cat resurgence is that Hasbro, makers of the Monopoly board game, replaced their traditional flatiron token with "a curvaceous silver pussycat," which has since become the monopoly player's piece of choice (nearly twice as popular as that adorable Scottie Dog that was always Parental Unit's favorite).

This NY Times article even mentioned the near celebrity status of  Grumpy Cat,  home to a scowling feline, whose website handles one and a half million hits a month. But the fact is that there are more cats in American households than dogs, 86 million to be exact, and that, my friends, is a scary thought.
