So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Kitties of Hades

No hounds of hell here. Nope, just the ferryman here is a kitty ... you don't pay him with coins, you pay him in catnip. Sorry. This story just lends itself to all sorts of really bad death jokes.

It is very peculiar how animals can sense things. Often, you can tell if the weather is going to change or if danger is at hand by how animals react. Well, take Oscar the kitty aka the "harbinger of death" at some nursing home. Apparently, the kitty can sense when someone is going to die within about five hours. The typically aloof kitty will curl up next to the dying person.

I just got a visual of some old guy gumming his jello and pushing the kitty off his bed because he knew what it meant!

Sorry, that was bad. Seriously, the kitty can tell when people are dying. But, apparently, most of the folks are too bad off to realize that the kitty is the grim reaper. Weird, weird stuff.

    I forwarded the story to some of my friends (big mistake) and one of them applies his Occam's razor theory that the cat is the cause of death, to which another chimed in, "See? Cats are evil!"
    I'm not crazy about cats, but I don't paint them all with the same brush. I've seen some awfully sweet Orange Tabbys that remind me of a dog, and the claws never come out. They can't get enough affection. My problem is that I'm allergic to a good many of them. Fortunately, the two (happen to be siblings) I like live next door, they are inside/outside cats, so I don't have any problems when they come into the yard for a scratch.
    Now... I will say the little footyprints on my nice clean BLACK car is somewhat annoying, but there are other cats in the cul-de-sac whom I've seen in the yard, so I can't blame Wilton and Yello, necessarily.
