Wasn't there a chance he would shoot at whatever he saw move, i.e. the cat?

Obviously it was his cat and he would have no real right to complain (being a gun-toting fool). But if the cat had been hurt, who would they have blamed?

vid please.

That's the way to stop most irrational god fearing, gun carrying, hetro-sexual men.
Throw a little pussy at them!

The world would be a better place.

Great, now PETA's going to get involved.
2003-11-01 04:05:47 PM  
I'm all for throwing cats.

For any reason.

This could have been a catastrophe !!!
2003-11-01 04:12:04 PM  
They should ahve roughed up that cat's bung-hole with a corn cob, then poured turpentine on it.

Talk about a twelve-pound killing machine.

Introducing the latest in SWAT Team equipment....the catapult.

2003-11-01 04:20:12 PM  
Wow, that was almost a catastrophe.
2003-11-01 04:20:19 PM  
Cats....Is there anything they can't do?

(Yes, lots of things.)

Now swingin' cats is more my bag baby.. Yaaah!
2003-11-01 04:29:47 PM  
Ah, they just got the idea from Gormenghast. Y'know, when Flay hucks one of the queen's cats at Steerpike.

Calling this a "Catastrophe would be cheesy enough if it wasn't already included in the headline, people.
2003-11-01 04:35:52 PM  
It could had been a horse folks...
2003-11-01 04:42:27 PM  
Sounds like someone got caught masturbating and didn't finish......
2003-11-01 04:44:00 PM  
Throwing cats...excellent idea.
If I had a cat, I'd throw it now just to celebrate the ingeniousness of this police tactic.
2003-11-01 04:49:13 PM  
Man uses the pluralization rather than the possessive.

Apostrophe avoided.

Stomping cats is good too.
2003-11-01 04:55:29 PM  
First midget tossing and now this? Only gives the PETA folks more reasons to be pissed.
2003-11-01 04:58:56 PM  
mmmmm cat stomping
2003-11-01 05:00:23 PM  
Like this?
2003-11-01 05:01:00 PM

Hey, FunkOut, Nice Gormenghast reference!

My brother's name is greg cook, but he's only 17
2003-11-01 05:29:12 PM  
This would've been a better story if they tossed a midget at him instead.
2003-11-01 05:29:56 PM  
God damnit, someone already beat me to the midget tossing reference.
2003-11-01 05:39:08 PM  
Anyone get a single clue where in the country this took place? I'm on the fence as to whether it's even legit...
2003-11-01 05:40:11 PM  
Behold the power of pussy.
2003-11-01 05:41:05 PM  
"Good Lord - I've heard about this - cat juggling! Stop! Stop! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Good. Father, could there be a god that would let this happen?"
2003-11-01 05:57:53 PM  
"...they gave me a bullet proof vest!"

"But Lloyd, what if he shot you in the head?"

"...Yeah, what if they shot me in the head?!?"
2003-11-01 06:01:55 PM  
Having 18 razor sharp, hooked nails backed up by 12lbs of free flying weightaiming for you, would definately give you something else to be concerned about!

Wonder how many stitches the guy needed?

Archie Bunker to Edith about the neighbor's vicious dog]
"....Can't leave the house because of that dog! I wish we had a cat!"

Edith] "But you hate cats."

Archie] "I know, but I could ball it up and throw it nails-first at the dog."

*taps microphone and leaves stage*
2003-11-01 06:04:53 PM  
Here, catch!
2003-11-01 06:32:36 PM  
How about that,maybe cats are good for something after all.
2003-11-01 06:36:20 PM  
There's been some great headlines today.

Great, now PETA's going to get involved.

I hope they do.
2003-11-01 10:26:38 PM  
to those of you advocating cruelty to animals, grow up. or if you think you are grown up, get professional help. there really isn't anything funny about mistreating cats (or dogs, birds, mice, whatever) but it does say something about you. and if my point isn't yet clear what it says isn't nice.

and if you are going to flame me in return don't bother with PETA references since i dislike them as much as the next farker.
2003-11-01 11:07:24 PM  
Yes, Curious -- my advocacy of throwing cats says something about me.

I hate cats.

That is all.
2003-11-01 11:21:38 PM  
Dude! Our cat is named Astrophe!

(my roommate is such a geek for naming his cat that...)
