“Donations for cat show welcome. To be held in San Jose. $$ Thank you. Small or large everything helps” read the text on the hand-lettered sign.

Organizers had strongly discouraged Dan from entering the cat show although they hadn’t banned him outright. “You are expected to wear a tuxedo and drink tea with your pinky finger extended,” he told me. “We don’t drink tea where I’m from. We drink beer.”
