I've previously discussed the cat problem in my neighborhood, and it's only getting worse. I have to say, "Go away, cat!" pretty much everyday because without fail, some freaky looking cat pops out of something and starts walking with me. I really don't like cats. And the other day while walking around Jamaica Pond I saw a horse. A horse! No one was near it, just a horse, chillin by the walking trail. When I eventually got closer, the horse was standing next to a sign that said, "I'm eating my lunch, please don't disturb." And of course, that freaked me out. It turns out it was a Police Horse (a cop's horse, not a crime-fighting horse) but where was the cop?! And why was the sign written in the first person like that?!
Being surrounded by random animals is by no means a new thing for me. But last night, I saw cat walking near me out of the corner of my eye, and as I turned to say, "Go away, cat!" I noticed that it was actually a giant skunk! People, I'm serious. I don't know how long it was trailing me, but it really would have been the perfect topper to my gem of a week if I was sprayed by a skunk.
