Farewell Sweet Coatie !

Hi everyone - sorry for not posting lately, but as you know, we cats march to our own drumbeat. I'm especially sad today because my pal Coatie has crossed over the rainbow bridge. My heart goes out to her human mom Regina as we all know the suffering that one goes through in these unfortunate times.

Those who have or had animals know that they are special. The sound of your voice makes them happy. Each and everyone of them know you by the smell of your breath. In my case, it's a bit easier because Johnnie Walker Black scotch has a distinct aroma.

So, today we add Coatie's picture to my sidebar for all to remember. The redeeming factor for me is that Coatie joins "Luke the Wonder Dog", "Gabi Lin", "Zoey" and the others who will welcome Coatie into the arms and take care of her.

Rest in peace, sweet Coatie !

The Cat's Meow And Puppy Dog Tales: The 5 laws of cats

1. Law of Cat Inertia: A cat at rest will tend to remain at rest, unless acted upon by some outside force – such as the opening of cat food, or a nearby scurrying mouse.
2. Law of Cat Stretching: A cat will stretch to a distance proportional to the length of the nap just taken.
3. Law of Cat Sleeping: All cats must sleep with people whenever possible, in a position as uncomfortable for the people involved, and as comfortable as possible for the cat.
4. Law of Cat Obstruction: A cat must lay on the floor in such a position to obstruct the maximum amount of human foot traffic. 5. Law of Furniture Replacement: A cat’s desire to scratch furniture is directly proportional to the cost of the furniture.

Upon entering a little country store, a stranger noticed a warning sign that read "Danger! Beware of dog!" posted on the door. Inside, he noticed a harmless little dog asleep on the floor beside the cash register. He asked the owner, "Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of?" The owner replied, "Yep, that’s him."

The stranger couldn’t help but be amused and said. "That certainly doesn’t look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign?" The owner answered,"Because before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him."

A police dog responds to an ad for work with the FBI. The personnel director says, "You’ll have to meet some strict requirements. First, you must type at least 60 words per minute." Sitting down at the typewriter, the dog types out 80 words per minute.

The director says, "You must pass a physical and complete the obstacle course." This perfect canine specimen finishes the course in record time.

The director continues, “There’s one last requirement. You must be bilingual.” With confidence, the dog looks up at him and says, "Meow!"

That's it for now. More Soon!

Stray Tuned!

Ah Possum, I hate it that you have lost a friend. Now it is back to the human you endure. YOu can think up new places to take a nap and suggest new flavors for dinner.
But then, sorrow is shared. I know Boss Jimmy is grieving with you, but don't allow him too much time, or he will take advantage.
Meow from North Carolina!
