That's my cat, Karma, in his favorite pose (staring at a picture of The Beat Handbook cover that Crystal framed for me). He's a real beat, as evidenced by his sleeping habits (among other things).
Karma (my cat) is the subject of the Day 72 Kerouaction in The Beat Handbook. The entry is titled, "On Cats."
One of my favorite pictures of Jack is on a little photo/essay book titled, The Kerouac We Knew. The cover photo is of Jack in his trademark "lumberjack" shirt holding a cat in his arms.
Kerouac loved cats. I love cats. What more needs to be said?
