So I was watching The National news telecast on CBC the other night and near the end of the show there was an arts segment about the world-famous Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia. And WHO do I see in this short report but MY CAT, Her Royal Highness? Go on, watch for yourself -- she's the scrappy black-and-white kitty who appears periodically throughout the item:
This must be the job that her friend Mr. Whiskervitch arranged for her in order to work off her prison parole! Gosh, HRH is looking positively chubby on the steady diet of mice, rats and regular kibble that she's eating in Russia.
I wonder if she's the only Canadian kitty at the Hermitage? Are all the other cats truly Russian strays, like it says in the news report? Or do cats actually come from many countries to work there, much like a feline United Nations? That's what I'd like to think -- cats of the world all coming together to protect and preserve artistic masterpieces!
