Pets Of The Week - Possum's Miffed !

There's a few things that I don't consider very funny and those things are dogs getting away with murder at the expense of a feline. You may think that I'm prejudiced (and you're right) but this time I've got evidence of the things a stupid dog will do for food and the end that dogs will go to to save their furry asses. Don't believe me? Watch the video!

I found many new pictures of my animal pals and one of the funniest is the trio of Shanti, Snickers and a black feline whose name I do not recall. The ringleader is Shanti and she is the owner of my pal, Nancy, who authors "Nancy Luvs Pix." Nancy is an excellent photographer and she took these rare shots of the trio together. I say rare because, according to Nancy, they spend most of their their time in the chase and swat mode.

Evidently, Snickers decided that it was a moment of opportunity and directed his love toward the black cat, who, by the look on it's face, is not overly thrilled about the situation. Please stop by and check out Nancy's pictures at

Betty's corgi, Yoda, puts that cute little face as he plays with his chew toy. Stop by Betty's journal, "A Corgi In Southern California" and see more of little Yoda. You can read her journal at

Ally's cat (hey....alley cat, I like it), Lucky, seems content just being petted. Although I must admit, we cats expect to be petted and rubbed. Stop by and say hello to Ally at

On a sad note, Lisa's cat, Mr. Marley Moo Sock Monkey, pased away January 27. Please stop by and wish her well at

If you have pictures of your pet and the crazy things they do, email and he'll give them to me to put in my journal. In fact, take a picture of you pet today and we'll feature him or her on Possum's Journal.

The Cat's Meow And Puppy Dog Tales:

A precious little girl walks into a pet shop and asks in the sweetest little lisp, "Excuthe me, mithter, do you keep widdle wabbits?" As the shopkeeper's heart melts, he gets down on his knees so that he's on her level, and asks, "Do you want a widdle white wabbit or a thoft and fuwwy bwack wabbit or maybe one like that cute widdle bwown wabbit over there?"

She, in turn blushes, rocks on her heels, puts her hands on her knees, leans forward and says in a quiet voice, "I don't think my pet python weally gives a thit."

A turkey was chatting with a bull. The turkey sighed, "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree, but I haven't got the energy." The bull replied, "Well, why don't you nibble on my droppings? They're packed with nutrients."

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

The Moral Of The Story: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

Well, that's Possum's Journal for this week. I'll have some more pets and owners next Friday.

Great joke and lesson about BS.

But... the term prejudice only means: "prejudging without sufficient data." YOU are making educated guesses based on your exteneded experience, IMHO.

Dearest PSH, that video really ticks me off. Dogs!! They need to be eliminated,well not all them, there are some exceptions. I'm glad my pet, Linda doesn't have a dog. I rule this house alone. You'll be happy to here that I started bugging her for breakfast at 5am this morning. She'd had a bad night, not able to sleep so I figured she might as well haul her rear out of the bed & feed me. Hehehe!! Now I'm going to hit her end of the sofa (to heck with my pink blanket) and sleep the rest of the day. Gabi in Washington
