Do you know what? I love being outraged! Don’t you? There is nothing quite like a good rant at someone’s expense and of course it makes a nice change for me to do a bit of ranting rather than be ranted at.
Normally, for some reason that I haven’t ever quite fathomed out, people and of course I mean humans here, like to rant about the things I do, such as a little al fresco pooing behind the TV.
I don’t know about you but I get really bored digging in a litter tray four or five times a day and so once in a while I like to ‘go’ elsewhere, what’s wrong with that I ask you? Nothing of course! The humans tend not to agree though, bless them, and get just a little annoyed with me, then they do a bit of ranting after I slope off behind the TV.
Now it is my turn to rant! As you can see from the picture above some Cats, for reasons best known to themselves, do a bit of ad hoc jumping, probably I think to entertain humans. I say if that is what they like to do then why not, it doesn’t hurt anybody does it.
Actually I have to stress at this point that I never jump in public – Cats are supposed to be laid back – it would ruin our image.
But recently I have seen the results of Cats demonstrating their jumping skills to humans just look at the picture below.
The picture was sent to me from a “well wisher” and I have to say that it is just about the most awful thing I have ever seen. How can a sane human do this to an innocent Cat? No, I don’t know either. This sort of behaviour isn’t nice and it isn’t natural is it?
Maybe the Cat in the picture was bad, if so what on earth did he or she do that was so terrible that he or she had to be tortured in such a way as this?
Even the good Catholics in the Spanish Inquisition didn’t behave like this, or was that because aeroplanes hadn’t been invented?
Please if you know of anyone who had a Cat drop on their head recently can you get in touch with me and we will see if we can find a better home for this poor individual I think the Cat needs it don’t you.
So to any Cats reading my blog and I know a lot of you do, let the above picture be a cautionary illustration and the story of that sad, frightened and tortured Cat be a lesson to you. When you think about jumping for the entertainment of some human or other thing again, think where it might lead.
I don’t know about you by dangling by a few strings 10 inches above the ground is a bad idea as far as I am concerned let alone several thousand feet attached to some homicidal (or is that Felinicidal) human who really and truly should either know better or be locked up immediately.
Lastly this thought just struck me when I was writing about Catholics, is or are Catholics anything to do with Cat Alcoholics? The words are so similar that it makes you wonder doesn’t it?
