Cats: Smart Enough to Look Stupid

There are a lot of animals that never wind up in an embarrassing position. Clams. Mealworms. To wind up behind the eight-ball, you’ve got to be smart enough to play pool. (Did I just say something wise?) That’s how cats get in trouble: curiosity.

P.S.–I don’t recommend allowing your toddler to pull kitty into the bathtub with him. That kind of curiosity never, never pays.

    1. Don’t you wonder about some of the people too busy holding their cameras rather than assisting the cats in some of these situations (like the poor cat who had a bag handle around her neck)? Although I must admit some of them were pretty funny – like the cat startled by the huge toy spider 🙂

    2. My poor Missy once got her head caught in the loop of a plastic bag–curiosity again–and was all over the place like a rocket before I could get it off her.

    3. They’re so fast when they’re frightened! It’s nearly impossible to catch them until they calm down somewhat or get stuck. Poor Missy must have been very scared!

  1. You did say something profound there, about the 8-ball.

    I agree, pulling cats into your bath is probably not a good idea. I possess clothing designed to stop the blade of a chainsaw in case of an accident, but I’m not sure even that is enough to protect me from a cat thrown into a bathtub. 🙂
