The Cat Prefers Chess, Maybe

Every time it looks like the US is going to score in their World Cup game against Portugual, we shout at the screen. My computer is hooked up to the TV and the game is in Spanish because we don't have cable, so the announcers are kind of excitable too, and the room gets loud.

It's a close game, so we end up shouting at the screen pretty frequently, and each time we do, the cat runs in panic from the room, skulking back to her perch beside the window only after it seems like we've calmed down.

"I wonder if she thinks we're mean people, always yelling like that," Katie says after another goal sends the cat racing to the kitchen.
