Instinct

Buddy, a.k.a. Thing One, has taken in recent months to dragging one of Kim's sweaters about the house, largely in our absence. It's an endearing habit. We've naturally assumed that he does this because he's drawn to the smell of his surrogate "Mom."

Lying on the sofa reading just now, however, I was disturbed to witness him enter the room with the sweater -- I heard the Poe-like rustle of the dragging first -- in his mouth, then proceed to repeatedly "kill" it with sharp bites to the "neck."

Do cats also suffer the confusion of love and murder? Or is that just the Gabriél Garcia Marquez talking?
