As to cat ID - our cats have tattoos in their ears that can be traced back to the vet so you can find out who the cats belong to.

Hey Roger, how are you?

Pratchett writing about elves (who in his books are beautiful, cold-hearted and manipulative) compared them to cats: " 'They've got,' she spat the word, 'style. Beauty. Grace. That's what matters. If cats looked like frogs we'd realize what nasty, cruel little bastards they are.' "

Sounds like our species doesn't it? Well, the more attractive specimens.

The rest of us are just nasty, beastly frogs.


Actually, I LOVE the way frogs look!!!


Pratchett is an arse!

Bear got Stephen a cat - Sonny, but Bear calls him Puss.

Then daughter got a cat that had a great time on a visit so Bear had to go get himself a kitten (He'd KILL me if he knew I was letting on that he actually has a heart!) He named it Lil Puss.

And, while Bear is picking his cat from the 7 week old litter, Cub decides HE wants a kitten. Cub named it Muschi which I am told is German for pussycat. (I told him I could ask Thomas about that translation so he had best be telling me the truth if I was going to be calling out "Muschi" in the neighborhood.)

Anyways, we now have three cats. They are hilarious. I've never been around cats much other than the farm kind, which weren't really pets. So, I have a few questions. If someone could help me out while we wait for Rogers other kitty to come home...

1. Why do they climb onto my head in the morning when I am clearly still sleeping?

2. Why does Big Puss jump up on the rim of the toilet everytime it is flushed?

3. Why do they all three sit outside my bedroom door for me to stumble over as soon as I open it?

4. If they are going to meow, walk between my feet while I'm trying to get to the coffee pot and stand on their hind legs to get my attention, why do they then walk away as soon as I lean down to pet them?

@squinney,
First, to answer your questions: because they are cats!

As to Muschi - that's right, it is pussycat in German. And it also has the second meaning pussy has in English. Embarrassed

I LOVE this story!!!


1. They love you. They want you to stop sleeping because you are not entertaining them when you are sleeping. They are awake. They may expect breakfast.
Your head is very warm.

2. Why do humans visit Niagara Falls?

3. Because they want to be with you. Your stumbling is an unintended consequence. They may also be attempting to wake you telepathically.

4. So you'll chase them!!!!!

Miranda just wandered in to share her special morning grass vomit ritual with me, then wandered out again.

I feel so SPECIAL.

@roger,
Those farging little bastigis. Of course they'll come back because you have the food and they can't get it themselves.

You've not spent enough time with Dante to realize that when he gracefully switches his tail and rubs against your legs, he is telling you that you may love him, admire his beauty and pet him until he is tired of you.

Of course, you really know Sally Dog, she of the wet, sloppy kisses and joyful jumping to get you're attention. A party girl all the way.

A house full of love. What's better than that?

Geez, Diane, you're such a sweetie. (I sure miss pm's!!)

I know you must be feeling happier than when I saw you since Dys is now eating you out of house and home and I'm just delighted for you both.

By the way, Detroit is playing Ottawa - who are you rooting for?

@Diane,
Well, that's it, Diane. Your cat likes you. Some people have cats that tolerate them. Some of us have cats that acknowledge our presence, sometimes, in a desultory kind of way.

Hi, Urs. Long time, no see.

At first I thought you were referring to the id, as in Freud, but I guess you were referring to identification. To have an ID, cats would certainly be highly indignant.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure they are mostly Freudian id, with an enormous ego thrown into the mix.

@Mame,
Mame, because it's you, I will cheer for Ottawa.

Now tell me why Detroit and Ottawa are playing and what are they playing for and what sport is it that they are competing in with each other? It must be football, since baseball is over unless baseball has joined in with the 24/7 sports channels. My ex would have missed his own mother's funeral if a good football game was on TV.

Oh god, I can be so uncool.
