Has Learned Meaning of Line in
Water, and Has the Patience of
the Perfect Angler.
Cats are known to be fond of fish,
but it is not every cat that is willing
to out and cairn enough fresh fish
to furnish his own meal and supply
the family breakfast table with the
food. Such an animal exists In
Miami, Fla. however, and daily
watches a hand line which his owner
places in the water. When the cork
bobbles the cat dashes to the office of
an amusement company, and sets up
a loud mewing. Following the
footsteps to the place where the line
has been dropped, whoever is on duty
at the office hauls in the fish to the
tuneful purring of the proud and sat-
eat. Some months ago the cat
chanced to be on the dock when a
was pulled In. He learned that his
favorite food came from the water and
was caught on the end of a line.
Since that any line with one end
the water and one on the dock has
been a source of unfailing interest to
the cat. The cat's patience would put
tho renowned Izaak Walton to shame,
for he will spend hours sitting by a
line without stirring. Sometimes the
cat will sit by the side of a fisherman
and will tell his human companion by
bis mewing when a fish Is beginning
to nibble at the halt before the fisher-
man has suspected that tho bait is
being dallied with.
