Puzzling Critter

Dear Daisy Mae,

When my Mom brought this creature home, I let out a yelp. What is it, a giant bug?

Sven, the Swedish Lapphund

Dear Sven,

You’re close. It’s a bug-eyed kitten and there’s nothing crazier on planet Earth. Your life will never be the same. It will grow into a cat. We have one in our house and, while I like her a lot (she purrs when I lie down beside her), she is, oh, disconcerting – to say the least. There is no point resisting. By the way, the ears aren’t always down flat. They get like that only when they’re about to do something really nuts.
