for a few weeks in 2008 there was a Chinese woman living up the road from me, and she would often call out to, and have a chat with, my cat - all three of us spoke a different language;    she left me a post-it note with the characters for “cat” and “mew” - “mao” and “mi” - but I still don’t know what she is saying here to the cat.
