She's become sort of like her charges, the Cat Lady has. She slides under the Boardwalk in one easy motion. She squints in the half light below, where the sun's noontime rays have squeezed through the cracks to illuminate discarded beer cans, soda cups, straws, cellophane wrappers and, beyond that, shadowy figures on skittish legs. She practically purrs as Kansas and Rockport and Roz-Rudy approach with quizzical looks on their whiskered faces, their tails curled into furry question marks.

Q: One of my cubicle mates is sneaking around with a married man in another department. I'm newly married and, frankly, I'm tempted to make an anonymous phone call to this man's wife. I'm not going to dime out my colleague. I just want to let this woman know that her husband isn't working as late as he claims, so maybe she can get him to stop. I tried talking to my cubicle mate about this but she's in la la land, convinced that he's going to leave his wife and kids and be with her. I thought she was smarter than this, but I guess she's getting older and must be tired of living with nobody but her cats to keep her company.

BEACH HAVEN WEST, N.J. - There's a view of the causeway bridge over her shoulder, and her rescue Chihuahua Lucy is ready as always for the close-up. Never mind that Lucy, without her consent, is being dropped from the billboard photo, ears and all. Stacy Janzer, 46, Long Beach Island Realtor and part of a builder family, Team J - or, as the license plate on her black Mercedes SUV says, because the proper spelling was already taken when she went to Motor Vehicles, Teem J - is replacing the photo on her "Got Realtor?"

A Camden man charged with murder in the 2012 stabbing of a homeless woman was ordered held on $2 million bail Friday. The arraignment of Tino Cruz, 32, marked the initial court proceeding in the first solved case credited to Camden's recently formed Cold Case Unit. Assistant Prosecutor Christopher St. John said in court that two witnesses cooperated with investigators, and another source told officials that Cruz had admitted killing Georgianna Jedrzejewski, 55. Jedrzejewski, an Air Force veteran, was known in the neighborhood as the "Cat Lady" because she cared for stray cats.

MINNEAPOLIS - Warning: This is a story about online cat videos. If you're among the seemingly tiny minority not interested in watching a one-minute clip of a cat in a T-shirt pounding on a piano keyboard, then move along. For everyone else, a new measure of respectability is looming for an Internet pleasure that is both massively popular and, for some people, a bit embarrassing. The Walker Art Center, a well-regarded museum of modern art in Minneapolis, on Thursday is presenting its first Internet Cat Video Film Festival to showcase the best in filmed feline high jinks.

Last summer, a woman with cats moved into the southern part of town. A lot of cats. Fifty, sixty, seventy cats. No one knows how many for sure, recalled Mayor Curt Noe. And then the complaints started rolling in to the borough hall: It was a health risk. There was constant noise. And some cats were wandering into a neighboring yard and soiling a child's sandbox. "The problem is this woman was essentially running a hotel for cats," said Councilman John Maguire. But there was nothing borough officials could do, because Pine Hill had no laws regulating cat ownership.

Ridley Park's cat lady is now feline-free as a result of a court decision ordering her to remove 37 cats from her home. Veronica Feeley, 85, of Crum Lynne Road, gave up 21 of her cats Saturday, when volunteers from several cat organizations took them to a home for animals. The week before, the other 16 cats were removed from her home. At the Ridley Park Borough Council meeting Tuesday night, Councilman Joseph Brancato announced that the borough's animal-control officers also had helped to round up the cats, ending a legal battle that has lasted nearly five years.

EVERY DAY there seems to be some new sign of the apocalypse. (For the record, Tattle's signs of the apocalypse do not necessarily agree with the signs predicted by evangelical Christians, Mayans or Nostradamus.) Today's sign is that the Walker Art Center, a once well-regarded museum of modern art in Minneapolis, is presenting its first Internet Cat Video Film Festival to showcase the best in filmed feline high jinks. That's right, the YouTubey time-wasters that get millions of people to click away from important news stories are getting their own festival.
