Lopsided Cat Restablishes Priorities

“Hello, opposable thumb thing person. Where have you been all this last week? California? Reunion? Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Okay, opposable thumb thing person, you can shut up now. I can’t actually speak your monkey tongue language. Also I don’t care. See? This face? It’s me not caring. So cram it. Now. Shut. Up. You and […]

The Closeted Cat

Here’s a funny thing about Lopsided Cat: He’s a closet affection whore. When the other cats are around he hates being touched or picked up; you reach down to pet him when the other cats are around and he literally flattens himself down the floor to avoid being touched. Because being petted around the other […]

Cattitude

Inquiring minds want to know how the other cats are getting along with Temp Cat™, and the answer is tolerably if not enthusiastically. Anyone who has cats knows that when you introduce a new one into a house that has them there is a transitional period, and that’s what we have going on here. As […]

Temp Cat™ Yearns for the Bennies

With the exception of the three or four hours he spent up a tree yesterday, chased there by Kodi after he foolishly ran away from her, thus triggering her hunting reflex, Temp Cat™ is doing fine, as you can see. We still need to canvass the neighborhood to see if anyone’s missing him, but I […]

We’re Suckers

Athena and Krissy were downstairs this evening when they heard a strange meow in the garage; Krissy opened the door to find a black and white kitten huddling at the garage steps. So naturally they to let it in the house to feed it and love it and hug it and call it George. Well, […]

Im N Ur Yard, Eetin Ur Ded Rakoon

Yes, indeed, there’s a dead raccoon in the yard (actually right over the property line in my neighbor’s yard; even so), and here’s one of the local turkey vultures, doing that whole “circle of life” thing and getting rid of it for me. You can see the object of its affections in the bottom right […]

Goodbye 2006

Lopsided Cat says: So long, 2006. You were mighty tasty. Indeed it was, Lopsided Cat. Indeed it was. You now have less than 24 hours left in 2006. There are many ways you could be spending this time. In front of your computer shouldn’t be one of them. Scoot. See you next year.

Completing the Trifecta of Adorable Cat Abuse Photos

My kid rocks. And that’s all I have to say about that. This picture now joins the other two, each featuring a different cat in the family. Here’s the one with Lopsided Cat, from last summer: And of course the popular one featuring Ghlaghghee, from last year: Oh, don’t worry. They’re all perfectly fine. And […]

Catching Up on the Petblogging

I haven’t done much petblogging here at the Whatever recently — I’ve sort of migrated that sort of action over to By The Way, where it seems somehow more apropos — but I understand that many of the Whatever readers who do not avail themselves of my AOL Journal stylings yet yearn to see the […]

I Know It’s Wrong

But I still think it’s damn funny. Oh, don’t fret. The cat’s fine. Anyway, it’s Lopsided Cat, who is definitively our dumbest cat; you could drop a GMC Yukon on his head and he couldn’t get any more dumb. What I find very amusing is that Athena knows this sort of thing amuses me; she […]

Catblogging 5/26

Ghlaghghee has been with us a year as of tomorrow, and in that time she’s gone from being a tiny ball of fluff to being a rather substantial-sized cat (as you can see from the picture above) and also from being a “he” to a “she.” Actually, she was a she when we got her, […]

Your Domestic Predator at Work

Krissy went into the garage this morning and found the bloody head of a mouse right on the doorstep, a present from Lopsided Cat, who spent the night outside, quite obviously indulging in his carnivore nature. She suggested that I take a picture of it and put it up on the site, but I won’t […]

Picture Day, Part 4: Cats

Here are the cats: Rex of course has been featured here before (he has his own page on the site, in fact), but this marks the first appearance of Lopsided Cat, who you’ll see to the left. Lopsided Cat is so named because his head is always tilted at an angle. The cause for this […]

New Cat

Meet our new kitten, who we received through the good graces of our neighbor, whose cat had yet another litter of kittens. We decided we’d take one on — there are always more field mice to deal with — and this is the one we got. We’re pretty sure that Lopsided Cat, one of our […]

New Cat Update

I know you’re just itchin’ to get an update on the new cat, so here it is: The new cat has shown himself to be of reasonable good nature, which is a very good thing. He came out of his little box early and met the rest of the pets, and those encounters have generally gone […]

John Scalzi’s Biography

A brief introduction to me: I was born in 1969 and by 1983 it became clear to me that I had better become a writer because everything else was actual work. Fortunately, so far I’ve managed to pull this off: My first job out of college was as a film critic at the Fresno Bee […]
