New York Moment

There are some things that just hit me as "Sooooo New York." Like, I'm sure this only happens here. I had one of these moments recently that just kinda made me laugh.

On the way home from work, there is a certain bodega (little, tiny grocery) that we like to frequent for necessities of the milk and oj variety. While we were there the other day, I noticed a cat wandering around the store - not that surprising as our neighborhood is overrun with cats and the door is never shut.
I, being a cat lover and all that, scratched behind it's ears for a second and got on with my oj purchasing. When I was going down the aisle, boyfriend extraordinaire said "You've got a Simon following you!" I looked behind me, and sure enough the cat had followed me. Oh, Simon is what we call pretty much every cat anywhere... it's all because of this episode of American Dad.

We thought it was pretty funny, so there's photo evidence. (sorry for the blurriness)

I'm pretty sure that cat still knows who I am when I walk in. Go figure, right? Do I still rub it's head? Yes, yes I do.
Is there really any other place in the states where this happens? I'm imagining no, but I could be very wrong.
