Wednesday Zen Moment: Cat slurps spaghetti

In the end, it wasn’t a dilemma at all.

Epic cat photo always trumps feline-slobbered dinner.

Still, Margaret Middleton paused briefly to consider the problem.

“The photojournalist’s dilemma: save your girlfriend’s pasta or get the shot of a lifetime?”


Oh, and her girlfriend was totally fine with the decision.

And thus ends a modern day romantic decision making on social media.

Cats always win the internet.

There is a somewhat sad postscript to this story.

The spaghetti-eating cat, The Banshee, has cancer.

But the 14-year-old rescue cat is living out whatever time she has left basking in love, comfort and now, fame.

Here’s a link to the crowdfunding account created last December when she was diagnosed to help with vet bills.

Be well, The Banshee.
