Cheating fate

I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that it’s asking for trouble to name a dog Lucky. Any dog named Lucky is going to get hit by a car. This is one of the major laws of Fate.

I was beginning to think it was similarly unwise to name a cat Scurry as a recent lost pet notice indicated someone had done. Any cat named Scurry is going to get hit by a car just as sure as any dog named Lucky is. The only reason you name a cat Scurry is if it darts around without thinking like an idiot squirrel trying to cross the street.

Well, imagine my surprise to find this updated lost cat notice at a rather busy intersection in Glendale:

scurry
How about that? Nice job getting home, Scurry. It seems like it’s a pretty good home you have there.
