Ghastly: Mew gonna get raped.

Mac: All right, how about "Cat Game?"
Foster: Cat Game? What's the record?
Mac: Thorny did six, but I think you can do ten.
Foster: Ten? Starting right 'meow?'
[Mac laughs - they walk up to the car, and Foster taps on the driver side]
Larry Johnson: Sorry about the...
Foster: All right meow. (1) Hand over your license and registration.
[the man hands him his license]
Foster: Your registration? Hurry up meow. (2)
[Mac ticks off two fingers]
Larry Johnson: Sorry.
[the man laughs a little]
Foster: Is there something funny here boy?
Larry Johnson: Oh, no.
Foster: Then why you laughing, Mister... Larry Johnson?
[pause]
Foster: All right meow, (3) where were we?
Larry Johnson: Excuse me, are you saying meow?
Foster: Am I saying meow?
[Mac puts his hands up for the fourth one, but makes an "eehhh" facial expression, as he is considering the last one]
Larry Johnson: I thought...
Foster: Don't think boy. Meow, (4) do you know how fast you were going?
[man laughs]
Foster: Meow. (5) What is so damn funny?
Larry Johnson: I could have sworn you said meow.
Foster: Do I look like a cat to you, boy? Am I jumpin' around all nimbly bimbly from tree to tree?
[Mac is gut-busting laughing]
Foster: Am I drinking milk from a saucer?
[feigned anger]
Foster: Do you see me eating mice?
Foster: [Mac and the man are laughing their heads off now] You stop laughing right meow! (6)
Larry Johnson: [the man stops and swallows hard] Yes sir.
Foster: Meow, (7) I'm gonna have to give you a ticket on this one. No buts meow. (8) It's the law.
[rips off the ticket and hands it to the man]
Foster: Not so funny meow, (9) is it?
Foster: [Foster gets up to leave, but Mac shakes his hands at him, indicating only nine meows] Meow! (10)

TheKickinMule: Ghastly: Mew gonna get raped.

Excellent!!!
Also, this guy who lives in the apartment across from me thought it would be cool to put some Mardi Gras beads on my cat, O'toole. I'd warned everyone in the building not to fark with him, but this guy is an asshat times ten. So he comes over whining about his hand (and O'toole had done himself proud) and I told him, "You're lucky you didn't lose the whole thing." It's not like I hadn't told him, directly, that he'd likely lose a digit if he farked with O'toole. This story makes me think it's a shame A.Hat didn't try this with O'toole. Would've been a little less dumbassery in the world. Headline would've read "O'toole removes tool of tool."


But if anything bad ever happens to your cat then you will have only yourself to blame for letting him wander around untended, which really is a major act of irresponsibility.

So, your cat just wanders the complex?


Well yes, as a matter of fact, he does. There are two apartments upstairs and two down, and if he wants in and I'm not home, he waits outside my door. I pay an extra $50 a month to have him here, so I don't see a problem. And it's not like I haven't warned people not to fark with him. I've been here over two years, and A.Hat is the first to try. I hope he spreads the word.

Not this indoor cat BS again? If you're gonna declaw a cat and keep it indoors, you might as well fark it. It's dead already.

Want to know what a "major act of irresponsibility" is? It's trying to put a farking necklace on a cat you've been warned to stay away from.
What would you have me do, then? Make him sit in the window and watch other cats who are allowed to roam freely? Sorry, no. I would not keep an animal if he had to be miserable.
Also, did I mention he can pretty much hold his own? Unless there's one hell of a good kitty sniper living here, I don't think he's in any danger.

Who said anything about clawing or de-clawing? The poster (apparently) lets his cat wander around the halls of his apartment building!

So what if he can hold his own against someone trying to put a necklace on him? Can he hold his own against someone wearing army boots? Or someone swinging a golf club?

Sure, you can argue that it is wrong to keep your cat locked up inside 24-7, but if you let your cat wander untended and anything bad happens to your cat then you have only yourself to blame! Also your neighbor could have called animal control and reported your cat as a nuisance animal and possibly a dangerous one. And the fact that you warned your neighbors not to touch him would only work against you.

What exactly is your point? In two years, I've had no complaints. A few others at the complex have cats (who also "irresponsibly" let them roam.) O'toole cannot procreate, and it's not like he goes up to people trying to start some shiat. He defends himself against what he sees as danger, and I cannot fault him for that.

And I just don't live in a place where tenants wear army boots and go around kicking cats. Do you? And as far as my warning them about his temper will NOT "work against me" -- time has told me as much. It was absolutely the right thing they do, for they know not to reach down to pick him up (like one can with some cats.)

You keep saying "roaming unattended"... you're not one of those people who put a leash on a cat, are you? Or do you expect me to follow him around as he does his exploring?

And this is a relatively small complex (eight buildings, each with four units.) A couple other tenants have cats, as well, and not a single person considers O'toole a threat. It's something of a joke around here, to be honest. We often gather for barbeque and night swimming, and believe me, there are no hard feelings whatsoever.

The guy who tried to put the Mardi Gras beads on O'toole is being evicted for non-payment of rent after only three months here. If you knew what an asshat he was, you'd better understand why it didn't bother me a bit that O'toole defended himself. Dude's always talking about how "cool" it would be to toss the tamer cats here off the balcony (although this will not happen to O'toole, believe that! He may be slow, but he has learned to do what I asked: leave my cat alone.)

You know, at this point, you're spending an awful lot of time and energy trying to make me feel as though I'm putting him in harms way, and that kind of pisses me off. You don't know me, my situation, and you certainly don't know O'toole (although I would love to introduce you to him, at this point.)

I have a happy, albeit strange, little cat. The fact that you are dead set on making that a bad thing is kind of ridiculous, really.

Nope. Not trying to make you feel bad for putting him in harms way or even implying that your cat is bad in any way, just pointing out that if anything happens to him it is your fault for letting him roam free.

Oh yeah, I've got pics! I've yet to figure out how to post them here, but I'm very, very close.

And to be honest, O'toole is extremely cool! It might sound a bit odd, but his attitude makes perfect sense to me. If I were cat-sized, I'd definitely be wary of, say, some huge dude trying to wrap a string of beads around my neck... how could that possibly end well?

Also, I have the comforting knowledge that if I have a man over for drinks, or to watch a movie, and he turns out to be someone I wish would leave, all I have to do is say, "Oh, I want you to say hello to my (little friend) cat!" It's never come to that, but it's a comfort to know I'm prepared.

I've had cats that were boring balls of fluff or veritable purr-machines... and I've loved every one. But I'll take a cat with character over them any day. It's just the two of us, and I wouldn't trade him for anything. I thank you for seeing the coolness of him. Really.

/O'toole thanks you, as well

Nope. Not trying to make you feel bad for putting ...


I can't decide who I should side with in this debate. O'Toole sounds like a badass cat who can take care of himself, so A.Hat got what he had coming.

At the same time, O'Toole weighs (at a guess) 10-20 lbs and is a very small animal in a world of larger animals who are nasty and cruel and will fark with him just because they can.

It's great that you've been able to warn your immediate neighbors (apart from A.Hole, who seems to be "challenged") to leave the cat alone till you get home and can let him in for noms and poops and skritches. The scary thing to me would be that time during the day when he was not in the protected environment of your building and was vulnerable to traps or poison or whatever else might be left out by someone who didn't understand a cat's need to stalk the neighborhood and stake its territory.

When I was growing up, we had a few cats who disappeared, never to be skritched again. It was heartbreaking, though I understand there are many reasons why this could have happened. Seems to me the safest, most responsible compromise would be to monitor your cat's access to the outside world, including (horror) a harness and tether with active monitoring to avoid him getting into a fight he can't win or getting run over by a car or dog or nasty monster with a golf club or something.

You're not wrong for letting O'Toole roam the complex on his own, but I can certainly see why it might become a liability if he hurt someone, or a crushing heartbreak if he met a foe he couldn't beat.

Llois, your point is well taken. Also, your profile picture of the cat in the "Could grow taters back here" -- the dark gray cat on the left, he could be O'toole's twin. The resembelence is uncanny!

For some reason, O'toole will not use a litterbox, he will only do his business outdoors. Since I'm a student, I'm never gone for more than two hours at a time, so he's never out for long periods of time. If I worked full time, it would indeed present a definite problem.

The cats round here seem to prefer to gather behind the storage buildings, behind the pool. Although I completely agree that he may well wander into the street. So far, I haven't seen that happen, but if I do ever (God forbid) lose him, I expect it would be from his wandering into the streets and being taken out by a car. But the kitty committee seems to stay away from the streets (at least so far.)

If he did succumb to such a fate, it would, indeed be devastating. But at least I'd know he didn't spend his life miserable, forced to be indoors, never knowing the freedom I know he so cherishes, and never knowing why it was denied him.

Thanks for at least considering my side, that means a lot. I certainly don't mind a well-thought-through opinion. What I DO mind is when someone makes assumptions without knowing the facts of the matter at hand. I applaud you for your honesty, and I do understand (and am grateful for) your concern. Really.

Well put.
I've got a big boy cat too, and I couldn't even imagine trying to keep him indoors all the time. He's missing a few chunks from his ear, but that's because he actually has an area around our house he can call his own and defend.

Oh yeah, don't anthropomorphise your pets.
They hate that.

Indoor cats are perfectly content, if you raise them as indoor cats. Plus you don't have to worry about, fleas, disease, coyotes etc. The average life span of an indoor cat is 50% greater than that of an outdoor/indoor cat for this reason. My cats have plenty to play with in the house and are never bored. (they sleep 18 hours out of the day anyway). I let the female one out in the evening and she always comes back for supper. The male cat is too stupid to handle the outdoors. I let him out once and he came back covered in dirt and smelling like cigarettes.

He must have a really tiny dick if he can fark a cat without killing it.

Or did he just finger it?

I thought like that, too, until I got my latest cat. He was one of the kittens of a wild cat. He was an insane, evil, bastard of a cat. Attacked everyone for no reason. Did about $2,000 of damage to the door jambs in my house. Climbed the walls. Tried to kill the dog. That was the last straw and I threw him outside. He spends his day hunting mice and climbing trees, comes in late and has supper, and peacefully sleeps until morning. He still doesn't interact nicely with people, but at least if you leave him alone, he'll leave you alone.
