Querétaro: Home of Free Kittens!

Walking home from happy hour the other night, the perro pulled over to one of his favorite rest stops and literally peed on the head of this adorable little kitty-cat. If history were any indicator, we'd have taken him home and added him to the growing menagerie. But after toying very briefly with the idea - and figuring out just how quickly the other two cats would shred him, we decided to leave him to his fate, but with a small pile of cat food to get him through the night. (Given the violence with which the spare cat reacted to our taking away a fistful of his food, we were sure we were making the right decision.) By the time we walked back there, a pair of teenagers had scooped up the kitty and informally adopted him, and soon found themselves being lectured patronizingly by a middle-aged gringo on the responsibility of caring for a pet, which they endured with minimal eye-rolling before accepting a few ounces of cat chow and going on their way. So, happy ending.

No, the kitten is cute. I'm a miserable prick. Really, ask anyone.
