Not long ago, a tragedy befell Inman Square. Our local neighborhood feline, Kiki “Inman Cat” was fatally hit by a car.
Everybody that lives or works around Beacon Street in Inman Square had seen Kiki. She did as she pleased, hunting mice or lounging in a parking lot. An aloof neighborhood cat if ever there was one. Kiki was very cognizant of cars and we all figured she would never get hit by a car. But Kiki, ever the huntress, pursued prey into the street and met her end.
A memorial to Kiki has sat undisturbed on Beacon Street for a couple of weeks. The memorial speaks to the people that live in Inman. It is a respectful neighborhood where people know each other and like each other. It speaks perfectly to the community that is Inman Square.
