  1. It appears that your cat is incompatible with your wall outlet. You should probably look into an adapter of some sort.

  2. Being the entire fan club for Zeus the adorable, I am thrilled with that picture. It shows his adorableness just fine.

  3. I knew writer who had a cat and a Xerox CP/M system, complete with WordStar and a daisy wheel printer.

    One day she reported that her cat, who enjoyed sitting on the warm CRT montior had managed to stick its tail inside one of the ventilation slots and get quite a shock. She used a rolled-up newspaper or magazine to knock the cat off of the monitor. The cat reportedly blamed her for the whole affair, since she had whacked it and cat’s aren’t TU GUD WIT COZ AN EFEKT.

  4. Mike, I think it is more likely that the cat was just being a cat – they blame their humans for every negative experience, like empty food dishes, getting wet, missing the jump up onto the table… the cat was probably quite sure that your friend had deliberately caused the shock!

    BTW Zeus is a gorgeous cat.

  5. Kathryne, I suppose that the cat could well think that the human is unhappy that the cat is on the monitor and shocked it and then whacked it to express her displeasure.

    Your comment about getting wet and missing jumps leads me to wonder:
    Cat regard humans as staff, but omnipotent staff. That suggests an odd window into cat theology.

  6. “Cat regard humans as staff, but omnipotent staff.”

    Omnipotent but barely competent under the best of circumstances.

  7. Pathetic Earthling wins the Internet today.

    As I side note, I highly recommend a Toddy Gear cloth to clean an iPad screen.

  8. Nice composition. Vertical stripes frame the shot nicely and the foreground and background are well balanced.

  9. Cat? Cat? You’ve got a beautiful dog and a snuggly bunny. Why not one of those? Huh? HUH?

    Oh well… nice cat pic. ;-)

  10. “Human, that white stuff in my hunting grounds is cold and wet. Why have you not removed it yet?”

This is the place where you leave the things you think
