Of Cats and Men

By Jake Marmer

Each Thursday, The Arty Semite features excerpts and reviews of the best contemporary Jewish poetry. This week, Jake Marmer introduces the work of Karen Alkalay-Gut, whose first poem appeared in the Forverts when she was 10 years old.

A remarkable Israeli poet and professor at Tel Aviv University, Karen Alkalay-Gut is the author of numerous poetry collections, including “So Far, So Good” (2004). She writes almost exclusively in English, though her writing career began in Yiddish. When she was just 10, her poem “Mein Koter” was published here – in the Forverts.

A few nights ago we heard a rustling sound by our living room window, and when we went to check it out we saw a teenage girl running away. She left a large stuffed animal perched on the iron fence below our window. We guess she's one of Sasson's many local admirers and left him a gift. Sasson was already on window sill checking it out, but because of NYC's bedbug epidemic we've left it outside.

Much thanks for all the good wishes. Sasson does not like taking his medicine, but he is taking it, and we hope he is on the mend.

One of our friends' cats, Britt, finally noticed the big HDTV that had been lurking in their living room for the past 6 months.  Animal Planet’s broadcast of “Cats 101” sparked her interest:

You really love your cats, but you're not insane about it. Okay, maybe sometimes, but really you're a normal person with a life of your own who just really likes cats. You are probably a model pet owner, but you're not going to cut people out of your life if they're allergic or really prefer dogs.

I had to stay home all day yesterday waiting for the plumber, who eventually arrived and took our toilet apart. The culprit was the lid of a can of cat food. There is only one member of this household who would put that there; we'll have to see that empty cans and their lids go right into recycling bin and that it stays closed. We also have had to go around the apartment closing window latches; Sasson thinks opening them is great fun. Well, we wanted an intelligent cat, and we got what we wished for.

A scenario all too familiar to us: wake-up When Shoshana first viewed it Sasson was on her lap, and it caught his attention.
