With a Chinese Menu in His Hand

Speaking of “Year of the Cat,” as I was the other day, I feel like it’s important to point out that there is no Year of the Cat in the Chinese calendar. We are currently in the Year of the Boar (or the Year of the Bore, should Peter Gabriel choose to put out a new album), and there are Years of the Dragon, the Rat, the Rooster and the Dog, but no Year of the Cat.

Maybe there’s a Year of the Cat in the Scottish calendar, alongside the Year of the Bog, the Year of the Thistle, the Year of the Haggis, and the Year of So I Married an Axe Murderer.
