Letter to the Editor: Mail carrier stymied by feline

October 10, 2012

Despite this note, a substitute mail carrier skipped delivery rather than chance an encounter with this 40th Place cat. Photo courtesy Marianne LaRoche.

Great piece on the substitute mail mess. We had a similar situation with a substitute last summer. No mail was delivered to our house for several days when she wouldn’t cross our porch steps with old Buddy, our black cat, asleep in the sun there — despite my husband’s note! And she abandoned the rest of the route both days, so neighbors down the block also got no mail.
