I wonder if dogs and cats leave signs like hoboes:
WATCH OUT FOR DOG.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. OLD NUT WITH GUN.
GOOD FOR A HANDOUT.
And stars like a Michelin guide:
FOOD CLOTHES MONEY AND SMOKES. A PRINCE.
CHOW AND DRINK. A KING.
I noticed no stray dogs came around the Stone House:
FUCKING CAT HOUSE.
— William S. Burroughs, “The Cat Inside”
