Moscow Cat Theater
I've arrived home from a visit to my friend's home in Lansing, Mich., and last night Bob and I saw the Moscow Cat Theater. We watched a professional clown pantomime vignettes and every now and then, he would bring out a cat who would do a paw stand on his palm. Other cats ran atop a rolling disco ball, stood very still while the main clown dressed them in cute costumes and held on while being swung in huge circles from a rope hung from the ceiling.
The only thing that bordered on animal cruelty was the swinging from the ceiling. For the most part, it was more animal humiliation than cruelty. But it was fun nonetheless. Whee!
