    I am glad you cat loves you.

    Mr. Noodles, on the other hand, is an assassin.

    Exhibit One:

    1. I was sitting at my desk one evening last week, working intently on my stamp collection. I was oblivious to everything except trying to distinguish one Spanish monarch from another. After a few hours, I tried to get up to stretch and could not move. What’s this, I asked myself? I looked down and discovered that my legs were tied to the chair with some green twine. On closer inspection, the entire room was festooned with green twine and I was only able to extricate myself by means of scissors. Mr. Noodles was watching from the chair, eyes glinting. I think his next move was to set the house on fire, knowing I could not escape.

    Exhibit Two:

    It’s the middle of the night and time for this old lady to powder her nose. I get to the door only to discover that *someone* has cleverly laid a broom across the door at shin height, causing me to narrowly avoid crashing to the floor. Guess who was sitting one the chair by the door, eyes glinting in amusement?

    Exhibit Three:

    Just yesterday I was coming into the kitchen from the garage and you will never guess who leaped in front of me with the sure intention of knocking me off the cement stairs. (This has happened numerous times.)

    I also suspect him of poisoning the butter but I have no proof.

    He just needs a little attention…or he’s an assassin. 🙂

    There is just so much I love about this. I can almost hear her purring.

    Dogs have owners. Cats have staff…er, family.

    What a purrfect TGIF!

  6. Alexander says:

    Both cats and dogs are capable of love. The dog gives it automatically, whereas a cat makes you earn it.

  7. Pineapple head says:

    I own a breed of dog that has been said to possess many cat-like characteristics: a Shiba Inu. He’s the perfect blend of canine and feline.

    Clearly all cats are wired like young male humans.

    Paige! The surly cat pictured in your link looks exactly like Mr. Noodles. And I see he thinks in terms of assassination as well.

    Personally, I’m not a big cat fan, though our cat is a sweetheart and low maintenance. I like dogs, but my wife doesn’t so that effectively ended my having dogs as pets 🙂

    I like our backyard chickens, they’re a hoot (or a cluck?) Petunia rules the roost and the 4 act like a coordinated team to fend off robins and the occasional hawk. They ran off the rabbit…but they reached a detente with the cat.

    Xenia is totally correct. As the target of several cat assassination attempts I can say: Cats are evil and dogs are the best thing God invented. Yup. (even though Lilly insists on peeing in my bed) Yup.
