"The trouble with cat people is that they cater and spoil the little beasts. You have to be firm. Set limits." Or so Dylan, a deaf writer in Ohio, believes when he accepts an invitation to cat-sit for a friend in Brooklyn in return for a week's free lodging. Soon enough he realizes Milord's no ordinary cat. Not only does he need extraordinary catering to his every whim, but he's very adept at making his displeasure known if Dylan doesn't obey. Soon the two are at war--and only one can win. A humorous story by the award-winning author Sandra McDonald, who herself has many cats.
