In a dream I had last night, aliens were turning people into animals, and even though I’d been turned into a cat, I remember these things happening - when I ran, it was in great big strides like I still had two long legs, I was walking through a downtown and came across an art gallery whose sidewalk out front was made entirely of headstones, laid on their backs, and that I went inside the gallery after being lured in by a woman who seemed to be the owner and was offering me a slice of cake, and that once inside, I kept looking out a side window, insisting to people who passed between the buildings that I had not been turned into a cat, but was, in fact, a duck.

If you’re like me and trying to catch a thief who’s been stealing things from your barn, you’ll maybe want to reconsider setting up that ingenious amateur burglar alarm (baby monitor, with receiver right next to your ear on your pillow) because if your barn cat is anything like mine, he’s most likely holding organized hissing and growling matches with all of the other neighborhood cats; these matches begin promptly every thirty minutes and seem to last the entire night, or at least until you finally give up on the idea of sleep.
