well, it's not *heart* warming..

One of my favorite exclamations is "you'd have thought I set the cat on fire."

I may not be able to use it ever again without thinking about this post


Just to prevent any histrionics: I do not light cats on fire, and the post I'm linking to does not involve anyone harming cats.

Honest.

You said the magic words... and I had to check it out for myself. Seeing as I've had a cat set themselves on fire. I left that comment over yonder if your curious. It was a relief to find someone else with 4 inside cats. Does that mean I'm not the crazy cat lady? (Then again I'm not mentioning the 4 outside cats added as well). In my defense I rescue strays, get the plumbing taking care of, shots and re-home them; all out of pocket. Life is precious under and guise animal or human. (Hugs)Indigo

Humph. That reminds me of something Mark Twain said (this is from memory, so may not be exact.) "A cat, having once sat upon a hot stove lid will never again sit upon a hot stove lid. Or a cold stove lid."

It took Pavlov years to figure that out. But then we all know writers are smarter than scientists, don't we?

So I was surprised to read on that blog you referred us to that some cats set themselves afire more than once. Cats must be dumber now than they were in the days of Mark Twain.

Oh, by the way, before I forget, Merry Christmas. Or Hannukah. Or Winter Solstice. Or Kwanzaa. Or if it is none of those, here is a blank for you to fill in:

HAPPY [FILL IN THE BLANK.]

And keep your Partners in Crime published.

Indigo - Josephine and Theodora (and not forgetting their foster brother Aztar) think you're a goddess and send grateful purrrs!

Steve - haha! Loved the Happy (fill the blank); best politically greeting I've seen!

Janet - not risking going to the linked site. Not that I'm chicken. Honest. But what if there really is a cat on fire? :O

Don't worry. The cat got put out. I mean the fire got put out. I mean... I mean a cat learned it's lesson without too much pain or destruction.
