Ca(t)fe society

Chicken Corner found herself at the Cafe Tropical in Silver Lake this morning, where she was lucky enough to make the acquaintance of Natasha (below), a solid gray feline with gold eyes. Most people bring their dogs to the outdoor tables at the Cuban cafe, which serves Cuban sandwiches, cafe con leche and guava-cream-cheese pastries deliciosas. But Natasha pushes the boundaries when it comes to sidewalk lounging. Chicken Corner asked, and Natasha said she does not see her felinity as a problem.

"Why should I care if most animal patrons are dogs?" she asked. "I am not a dog. I am a cat, and I like it here. But I wish my human would hurry up and get his order. Most dogs feel the same way when their guardians go inside."


Natasha chats with a blogger while waiting for her people to return with coffee, orange juice, and guava cream cheese pastry.
