Encore: Cat Watching ‘Psycho’

Sorry, couldn’t resist! This gives me a laugh every time I see it. The cat is watching Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho on TV, and you’d better believe he’s following the action closely.

My folks wanted to see Psycho when it first came out, but they couldn’t find a babysitter. So they went to see it at a drive-in, with me in the back seat in pajamas. I was supposed to fall asleep. Wrong! Kind of surprising that I ever slept again…


More Funky Critters

Y’know something? I have no idea what I meant by that headline.

Anyhow, our dogs and cats and birds, et al, live in a world designed for and dominated by human beings–and look how well they make the best of it. Their adaptability always amazes me. We wouldn’t do half as well in a world designed by and for cats.


Bring on the Geishas! (‘Oy, Rodney’)

I don’t understand Violet Crepuscular’s literary technique. I was expecting to read, in Chapter CLIII, all about the preparations for the party to be held in honor of the Japanese ambassador, Walt Dropo. Instead, she gives us a digression about her sister-in-law’s atrocious table manners. This is most unedifying.

Moving on to Chapter CLIV, we find Lord Jeremy Coldsore trying to recruit geishas to serve at the party. He has to settle for members of the Scurveyshire Ladies’ Garden Club, who agree to do it in return for a zoning variance that would allow them to erect a colossal statue of their founder, Mrs. Elefanta Williams, in a statue-free zone.

“I hope this works,” says Lord Jeremy. “Not one of those women is a day under fifty, and not one of them knows the first thing about being a geisha.”

“Get the ambassador drunk in a hurry, and he’ll never notice,” replies Willis Twombley, the American adventurer.

With the vicar still laid up with conniptions, his gardener, Jock the Crotchety Gardener, takes it upon himself to empty the controversial wading pool and put it away. Jock and all his crotchets is promptly sucked under the wading pool, never to be seen again. Constable Chumley arrests the one eyewitness on the scene, charging her with Not Watching.

“But I saw some octopus kind of thing shoot out and grab him, and pull him under!” she protests. “Ain a fair vymin’ wi’ me hatriff,” counters the constable.

Lord Jeremy has no time for this: he is desperately trying to find half a dozen geisha costumes. Jo-Jo the Carefree Tailor, in complete ignorance of what constitutes a geisha costume, has created six outfits can only be described as rather like cowgirl clothes. This makes Twombley nostalgic for the plains of Texas.

“If we throw a square dance instead of one of those Japanese tea parties, we’re home free,” he assures Lord Jeremy. “Sort of a Japanese square dance, with that funny-soundin’ music that they like.”

There is no time left to pursue alternatives. The party must be held this very night.


Sanity Break! Cozy & Cuddly

Enough Sturm und Drang already! Here are some dogs and cats with their heads on straight–also, I strongly suspect, a tiny peek into what God intends for us, once He restores and regenerates His creation.

Excuse me, I want to go grab me a cat…

P.S.–Videos of animals sleeping strongly resemble still photos of animals sleeping.


Ninja Cats

In the good ol’ days, ninjas were renowned for their ability to make impossible climbs. They also bumped people off for money, so they weren’t the good part of the good ol’ days. However, cats climb even better than ninjas and they don’t bump people off, no matter how much Fancy Feast you offer them.

A word to the wise: you might want to reconsider allowing that little kitten to shinny up your leg. When he grows up, that’s gonna hurt a lot.

Cats & Dogs & Belly-Laughs

And here I am, remembering to post the video after I select it and load it. But I’d best not brag, just in case I suddenly discover I’ve forgotten something else.

Isn’t it amazing, how gentle most of these dogs are with cats who are just a fraction of their size? You will not I said “most,” not “all.” There really are moments in these relationships when the cat has a duty to assert his dominance.


Cats Loving Babies

I’m just not right. I loaded this video at the usual time and then just plumb forgot to post it. Looking at my stats just now, I wondered why no one had bothered to watch the cat video. Then I discovered that there was no cat video. *Sigh* Well, better late than never.


Lawsuit: ‘I am not Mr. Bean!’

A Social Justice Studies professor at Mordor State University has sued a fictional character for “making people think I’m him.”

Dr. Che Lastima says the well-known comic character, Mr. Bean, was purposely created by racists to be an identical duplicate of him, “so as to make my students laugh at me,” he told several random passers-by. “They even got him sitting on a chair on top of a car, because I do that.”

The lawsuit, filed at Porky’s Mini-Golf Park across the street from the campus, demands that Mr. Bean’s creators, if they can be found, pay the professor $895 million in damages. No one at Porky’s, which is closed until Memorial Day, was available for comment.

“I’ll show them they can’t do this to an intellectual!” said the professor.


Candid Cats & Dogs

Hey, this is just our daily sanity break–reaching out for harmless fun after plodding through the news.

Was it Apollonius of Tyana who said it’s tough being the only dog in a bedful of cats?
