Last night, getting home from a walk, I was admiring the lovely homes of the three spiders that have taken up residence outside my apartment building.
My downstairs neighbor was home and had let his cat out into the main part of the apartment. The cat was at the window. To say that he was admiring the spiders would be a bit of a misnomer. He had the fixed gaze that only a predator can have for its prey. It's the most intense thing to witness.
You can bet those spiders were thanking their lucky stars that the cat lives behind the glass barrier.
