Who goes camping with a cat anyway?
2003-02-04 01:06:40 AM  
Someone who didn't feel like doing all the driving.
2003-02-04 02:28:19 AM  
I don't like cats, but would still beat the hell out of the Asshole that shot it with a BB gun.
2003-02-04 05:07:46 AM  
7 years later? Wow, how is he SURE it's the same cat? :p
2003-02-04 05:08:46 AM

When I was little my Mom had me tattooed in my ear. I had a habbit of getting lost in department stores. It says "999" I think.

That cat is gonna so piss all over ALL his stuff. His clothes, his shoes, his bed, the carpet, the drapes, the stereo equipment, the TV, the computer, the silverwear, the canned goods, the emergency ratios, his girlfriend, the phonebook, inside the dryer...and the washer, in his car, on his car, around his car, ....well, you get the picture.

I guess I could've just said that cat's gonna be pissed.
2003-02-04 05:34:29 AM  
Yeah, but can Toonces wank like my cat can?

2003-02-04 05:40:52 AM  
toonces talks French!
2003-02-04 05:44:15 AM  
Someone say wank?

ok im no PETA whack job, but only a canadian or a chode would remove a cats front claws:
"Three weeks into the trip, Freckles broke free from his leash and chased Toonces halfway up a tree - remarkable for a cat with no front claws."
2003-02-04 06:02:43 AM  
Dogs rule, cats drool.
2003-02-04 06:09:01 AM  
Removing claws, eh?

Anyone have a cat AND a waterbed?

C'mon now, he was in Texas...

2003-02-04 06:14:17 AM  
I may be 19 goin on 20, but even I remember Toonces.

There is no excuse whatsoever for anybody who says "huh?" in response to this headline.

That is all.

A friend of mine had two cats, one called "Space". The other one, walked out one day, and returned about two years later. His name ?
2003-02-04 06:31:43 AM  
Maybe he took a little trip on a flying saucer.
2003-02-04 06:39:45 AM  
Removing a cat's claws is just plain nasty.
Is it true that is the US you can't let your cat roam free?
2003-02-04 06:39:49 AM  
RonnieJamesDildo, damn, that's a fat cat.
2003-02-04 06:41:46 AM  
Okay, getting a cat declawed is bad enough, but what kind of meathead takes a declawed cat fricken' camping!?!

and for a month, at that.

Out of BOunds-exactly

This guy gets his cat back just in time for expensive vet bills as toonces slips into his waining years. What a lucky guy! I wonder if the cat was raised by wolves.
2003-02-04 06:57:59 AM  
If your cat is strictly an indoors cat, there's absolutely nothing wrong with having its front claws removed.
2003-02-04 07:08:12 AM  
For no real reason, I adore this site.
2003-02-04 07:15:08 AM  
My wife's cats decided to do the old scratching on my Bose speaker grilles. The choice was simple, cats stay, claws go. There ain't no friggin' difference, declawing or having their reproductive organs ripped out.

Now the cats "smack" me with padded feet!
2003-02-04 07:22:47 AM  
I have a cat names Toonces. We call her the Tooncenator when she gets wound up.

2003-02-04 07:29:10 AM  
The cat had been shot twice with a pellet gun...

I have a friend whose cat got loose. When they found him, he was alive but had a broken back. The vet said it looked like a blow from something like a baseball bat. My friend kept the cat for several weeks, but being paralyzed in his back half made it impossible for him to get around at all. She finally had to have him put to sleep. I would love to get my hands on the asshats who do this kind of thing to animals. I would introduce them to MY baseball bat!
2003-02-04 07:36:18 AM  
Sounds to me like he was trying to abandon that cat and now he has to take it back or look stupid and guilty
2003-02-04 07:47:45 AM  
Toonces was unavailable for comment...

My grandmother actually noticed the underfed Toonces a few times on her daily walk. She put out some food for her, but it was never touched. A week or two later, bingo bango the crazy cat was all over the headlines, and sadly enough this was the biggest news story to hit Gananoque for quite some time. Anyway, the real dirt is that as much as the linked article makes it seem like buddy is in a big hurry to get this cat back, they've actually offered it (for free) to anyone in the Southwestern Ontario area who is willing to provide it a good home. And now you know, the rest of the story.
2003-02-04 08:19:00 AM  
we also fill toonces' medicine at real pharmacies because it is cheaper. Every now and than a pharmacist will stick a "do not take this medicine while driving" sticker on the bottle.

I'm 15 and watch Toonces and the other SNL re-runs on Comedy Central whenever it's on.

Toonces rocks!
2003-02-04 08:28:57 AM  
I got a chuckle from it. Nothing more.

Generally I've got to agree with the idea that dogs are better. Fark all the stuff Deniro said in "Meet the Parents" about cats making you work for their affection whereas dogs are good for insecure idiots because they give it freely. Dogs are hilarious pinheads that aren't afraid to let you know they like you. Cats are insolent, sulky biatches; the aloof arseholes of the animal world. Fark em.
2003-02-04 08:34:49 AM  
Hey that's odd, my cat is named Toonces too!
2003-02-04 08:38:16 AM  
Everyone who posted a picture of your cat: your cat is really farking fat!!! What do you feed it, babies?
2003-02-04 08:39:11 AM  
Dude for real...if there is a stray animal in your yard, drive him away with rocks....I have no problem with that...but don't fill him full of steel pellets that are going to cause all kinds of physical problems or break his spine and just leave him to fend for himself in the wild where anything will just kill and eat him. For Pete's sake. Freaking pellet-gun-toting no-parental-intervention asshat kids.
2003-02-04 08:41:45 AM  
Here here on dogs and Deniro's cat theory. Dogs are the puddle stompers. Cats are the fruits wearing galoshes.

I just have to point out that having a cat declawed is horribly inhumane, and I promise I am not a PETA freak. The way cat claws are set up, declawing is equivalent to cutting off the tips of our fingers. And it is so unnecessary. You can clip claws just like you can clip nails, just don't hit the pink part inside the claws. If you insist on declawing, it's just because you are too lazy to clip every week, and that is your own selfishness.

Thank you. That is all.
2003-02-04 08:50:20 AM  
The cat had been shot twice with a pellet gun and was very thin and weak, but other than that she was fairly healthy.

Thin, weak, and healthy.

Hey, I happen to like the stray cats in my yard - keeps the farking rabbits out of my wife's garden. Seriously, I had a family of cats living under my tool shed for years and never had a problem with rabbits. Last year the yard flooded, cats moved to drier country, and farking bugs bunny ate half the garden.

Cute Photoshop, Inthe80s. That reminds me, be sure to have your children spayed or neutered before they're allowed on the Internet.
2003-02-04 09:10:20 AM  
god darn dog!
2003-02-04 09:17:12 AM  
Stevarooni, that is like the cloassic photoshop man, like classic man, really.
2003-02-04 09:37:33 AM  
How cold is too cold to reunite with your long lost cat, anyway? It's not as if they're going to give the cat a ticket. It's always farking cold when you're surrounded by suitcases underneath a plane that is 30,000 or so feet in the air.
