Remember this moment? (You know 3:50, the one its stubbornly not starting at?)
It's happened over and over again in film... Twins, separated at birth, suddenly run into each other and *GASP*
"You're me? I'm you? ...Is this a mirror?"
One evening this week I opened my front door to empty out a water bucket on the street and I noticed that my cat Daisy had snuck out behind me. I called her and coaxed her back in. She was a little resistant, as always, because going out the front of a house is an adventure seldom granted to my cats, and they usually roll around in the dirt a while before coming back in.
Anyway, as soon as she passed into the hall, I shut the front door and went back to the living room, though I noticed she had stayed in the entrance area, sniffing everything. Cats don't sniff as much as dogs, but they do tend to check out everything around them....but usually not a familiar space. She sniffed her way to the living room. No sooner than my suspicions arose, they were confirmed: an identical cat jumped back in the house from the balcony on the other side!
And there I had it- the movie moment when my cat Daisy discovered her doppelganger! Neither of them liked it very much, by the way. Backs hunched, teeth baring, both cats looked ready to attack. I drove out the double out just before they drew claws!
