Re: Feline Follies

For the amusement of cat lovers, I like to check Snopes (the online database of urban legends and the like) periodically, and one of their entries is this rather hilarious tale of a cat getting stuck in the disposal system. According to the owner's recollection, Rudy isn't the brightest bulb.

I think I'm turning alternately blue and red from laughing so hard at that "incident"!

If I saw this in a movie or a sit-com, I'd think, "Never in a million years would that happen in real life!" Being a prof' in the English department, well, obviously, Patti Schroeder has a flair for writing, which makes the account all the more screamingly hilarious.

And the cat still sniffed out the sink after all that?! I'm surprised that animal ever set paw within the kitchen again!

Sincerely,

Bill

Oh my gosh...that's not funny--that's the stuff of NIGHTMARES! I'm going to go to bed and dream of that happening to my own cat if I'm not careful.





At least I got some good news out of this thread. Glad to learn Banshee is gaining some new control--even if it did mean some very unwanted cat pee on the bathmat.

OMG, poor Rudy! I'm glad he is okay after his ordeal.

It's not every day that your cat will look directly at the camera.

And the more obvious cat-position in the second image: the captain's chair.

I had a mug delivered from Flukie's Cafe' the other day and cut some holes in the box, put some cat-treats and small toys in it and sat down to watch what would happen. Not the most exiting kitty-vid you'll ever see but here it is:

Looks like Fub waited for you to get the camera in the right position; then looked up ever so often to say...you still got that thing aimed at me? and finally...well, enough of this; I'm gonna go find something else to do...

Re: Feline Follies

No pics, but a bit of hilarity this morning. When I went in the bathroom to take a shower, I opened up the curtain, and Phantom (our black cat, NOT Banshee/Diaper Kitty) was sitting on the far edge of the tub. He's a bit of a trouble maker, always getting into everything, and we're surprised his curiosity hasn't gotten the better of him yet. We also sometimes call him Vulcan Kitty, because despite his antics, he doesn't show any sort of expression on his face, ever! At least, until now...

So I started the water to let it heat up, and Phantom just sat there watching the water. Soon, he noticed that the bottom of the tub was starting to fill up a little bit, and he started getting a slightly panicked look on his face, and was starting to fidget around quite a bit. Finally, he'd had enough and attempted to leap across the tub to get out. This gif gives a good approximation of the result:


And then of course was the mad kitty scramble to get out of the water, including sinking some claws into my toes! To my wife, the funniest part was this was the first time we've seen him puff out his tail, but he couldn't do the lower half because it was soaked!
