Story Sent in by Paul:

I took Bonnie out for coffee and it seemed like all was well. In the middle of our talk she pulled out a fuzzy hairband that had black cat ears sticking up out of itself. Three of them.

"Why three ears?" I asked her.

She said, "It was the only one I could find. My sister hoards them."

It looked ridiculous, but I did my best to keep a straight face.

When it came up again, she was the one who brought it up. "Have you ever seen a cat with three ears?" she asked.

"No. Have you?"

She shook her head. "Not with three ears. But I have seen one with three tails."

I had to laugh. "Where did you see that? A state fair or something?"

She stood up and took her phone out of her pocket. "Excuse me," she said, and held her phone to her ear and walked away, towards the front of the shop. After a few moments, she returned to grab her coat.

"I have to go," she said, "My three-tailed cat is in trouble."

Last I ever saw of her.
