The Catnip-Filled Sock Claims Another Victim

A tragedy, really. I thought Lopsided Cat might be strong enough to hold out against The Sock. I see now that I was wrong.
Lots of stuff to do today; I suspect there will be light posting from here on out.
Why can’t the invent something like that overly active dogs?? My dog needs something to mellow her out on a regular basisi. That’s a great picture :D
I was planning on writing an epic blog post about marijuana decriminalization this weekend, but this has taken the heart out of me.
When I was a kid, my mom planted catnip in one of our flowerbeds (later realizing this to be a mistake – once you have catnip in your yard, there’s no getting rid of it; twenty years later she was still pulling up every plant she could find in a futile effort to rectify her error).
We had a cat that would find a patch and just roll in it until she passed out. After a while she’d wake up, and just roll some more until she passed out again. She did this pretty much every day, and seemingly pretty much all day, during the “growing season”.
She claimed she didn’t have a problem and that she could quit at any time. But I never saw any evidence of that.
Jeez! The lows poor Lopsided Cat has to stoop to just to get a mention on the blog.
It was either give up or get the sock taped to him.
Zomg! my cat looks SO much like yours!

By the way, the link above is not a spam :) the real link is http://www.flickr.com/photos/taiza/sets/1667197/ i just made it smaller, but then i realized that you could think it’s a spam :D
God damn you, pusher man!
What’s up with that monstrous bookmarking application in your feeds? It’s bigger than your posts!
Wow, didn’t realize it did that. I think I just fixed it.
O Great Scalzi, the Executive Committee of The Official Ghlaghghee Fan Club expresses its appreciation for this excellent Lopsided Cat update. His Mightiness looks fantastic and is simply relaxing after a hard day of disemboweling elk.
These updates are unfortunately far too rare (not to mention the criminally rare mentions of Magnificent She) but we have come to accept – reluctantly – your limitations. The Beauteous Ghlaghghee has perhaps decided that you have reached the pinnacle of your native abilities and no further improvements are likely.
Still, we can hope.

Will no one help that poor cat?
My God, it’s full of catnip.
