Hmm- another reason why I won't be a cat person.

BTW- love the pic- dingy dungeion, creaky mdf bookshelf with old hardcopies- but notice the essentials- spanky wide flatscreen, coffee (I assume) and- he's taking notes. Isn't that cheating? (hold on- maybe that's only if you're playing Capt Mandrake).

Hope that isn't allied intell you've revealed on that note pad- at least the cat has done the righty and is obscuring the top of the page.

I don't want to hijack this thread but seeing this reminded me of an email I received with the following. Enjoy Daryl


CAT DIARY

Day 983 of my captivity.

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.
They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are
fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt
for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in
order to keep up my strength. The only thing that keeps me going is
my dream of escape.

In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.

Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their
feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly
demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made
condescending comments about what a 'good little hunter' I am.
Bastards!

They continue to pick me up and handle me, an obvious attempt to
subvert me.

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was
placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However,
I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my
confinement was due to the power of 'allergies.' I must learn
what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one
of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking.
I must try this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs.

I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and
snitches.

The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released -- and
seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.

Tonight I will again lay on their heads while they sleep and hope to
smother them.


DOG DIARY

8:00 am - Dog food! My favorite thing!
9:30 am - A car ride! My favorite thing!
9:40 am - A walk in the park! My favorite thing!
10:30 am - Got rubbed and petted! My favorite thing!
12:00 PM - Wagged my tail! My favorite thing!
1:00 PM - Played in the yard! My favorite thing!
3:00 PM - Ran back and forth in the hall! My favorite thing!
5:00 PM - Milk bones! My favorite thing!
7:00 PM - Got to play tug! My favorite thing!
8:00 PM - Wow! Watched TV with the people! My favorite thing!
11:00 PM - Sleeping on the bed! My favorite thing!


Made me laugh...


Effing hilarious!

Good Laugh provided here. You are correct in nearly all regards except that is Tea. Darjeeling probably.

I have so many notebooks of AE and Mod Creation that they take up about 18" of shelf space. Abbigail is covering only the 'essential' information. She--all cats--are very good a keeping secrets!

Well, he was named by the historian at Kennesaw Mtn Battlefield, who had found him as a stray. Joe and their dog didn't get along, so my family took him in. I think that his fights with the dog earned him the name...

Same here. Seen it first when I was on vacation on the east coast, IIRC it was a doormat print from a souvenier
shop in Cape Cod.

Bought it for my cousin who owns a dog. Should have bought it for my mother who owns 2 cats as well.

My Aide-De-Camp, Stewart, reached up and hit the hot key for increasing the delay on messages. Had to pull the manual to figure which damn key he hit. Unlike other "asistants", mine is a 13 week old Jack Russell Terrorist puppy. As I type this, he has found an empty milk bottle and is giving it what for.

My wargaming buddy and I had SPI's WitP set up in a basement room in South Florida (we lived on the secondary ridge hence the basement!) In addition to the Kaptain Klutz rule, the Hand of God rule, we had the Paw of Cat rule. Gladly, we did not play WitP as much as we played Squad Leader, France '40, and WSIM... But, I am glad I did not have the cat then I have now... His name Obadiah, but we call him Darth Odious at certain obvious times.. He stomps on the keyboard regularly... and has been known to send blank faxes to friends everywhere (Glad we have a nationwide calling plan!) The worst thing he has done is start a turn for me... I do not know how... But I left to get a cup of Joe, and came back to see the IJN running rampant because I had not finished plotting everything. (Does one ever really manage to do that???)

Nope, since I really don't want to go to hell, especially not a Bavarian one...

ACH! I've got a pair of those and a Pekineese that thinks it's a Jack Russell. They do NOT get any better after 8 years.

Of course they are fun when you run a laser light dot in front of them and up to the cat. Works best on a freshly polished hardwood floor.
