I’m really busy today, so here is a picture of a kitten rescued from the Red Wings arena site

Okay, that’s a pretty clickbaity headline, but really the credit goes to the staff of the Detroit Free Press, who wrote a whole damn article about an adorable six-month-old kitten that was found on the construction site for the Detroit Red Wings‘ new arena, brought to the Humane Society, and eventually relocated to “a safe, outdoor location,” which is nothing at all like “a farm upstate”:

As today is super-busy for me, I will just note that the cat was dubbed “Little Squeesars” and that the Free Press staffers at least had enough shame to keep their names off the byline. Also that the Red Wings arena is costing the public $334.5 million, about which no one has any shame at all. But who can put a price on cuteness!

  1. The outdoor location is in the Huron Valley, which if Google Maps is an indicator is an exurban area. Safe enough I guess.

  2. See? All you haters…. Sure, the Wings new arena will cost the encumbered taxpayers of Detroit hundreds of millions that could have been used for any of the things that taxpayer dollars more generally go toward… but this investment has saved the life of a kitten. Kind of.

    You just can’t put a price on that…
