My pussy’s on Broadway (Images: Tim Durkan with permission to CHS)
I first spotted the cat later identified as one Mr. Bojangles around 5:30 PM Friday on the corner of Broadway and Thomas. His swaggering cat style caught my attention and led me to believe that he was having a pretty good time and not in any real danger — so I tagged along for a minute.
The confident kitty sauntered onto Broadway. to size up the action at Julia’s, evidently…
He seemed legitimately drawn into the festive atmosphere that was building before the night’s big show… and who can blame him really?
Straight to the stage his furry little feet carry him – could have been the glitter or disco ball, hard to say… Alas, I become curiously suspicious and set out to find his owners who I suspect will be missing him soon… and I was right, thank goodness.
I located a nearby resident who quickly claimed possession of their beloved ‘Mr. Bojangles’ the escape artist. Evidently Mr. B skillfully made his way past security and up to the neighborhood bar unnoticed. Again, I think many can appreciate that one.
Alas, it was time to call it a night for the famous feline who appeared ready for a nap. According to one misty-eyed patron, Jangle’s visit had been so prolific even the old timers believe him to be “the most interesting cat in the world.” Life on the Hill.
