Artifact: Nine Lives, Ten Obstacles

Findings from the streets, files, and hard drives of New York.


Above, an official blueprint for the obstacle course set up last week at Madison Square Garden during the CFA-Iams Cat Championship’s Feline Agility Competition. Revi (pictured), a five-month-old Maine Coon kitten from Richmond, Texas, finished in eight seconds, beating out 29 feline rivals to win the race (which is separate from the best-in-show contest). Her prize: 60 pounds of cat food. Now, that’s something to be purr-oud of! (Sorry.)
