That's one pissed off cat. Yeah!

(blushes) I almost put a sign like this up , a few months ago. I'm so glad I didn't, now that I see how silly it looks in the light of rational detachment!

Hey, don't blush, Cupcake. You know what the French cats say: De l'audace, encore de l'audace, et toujours de l'audace!

Zoot, ask Bob to cross-stitch that over your bed, so that you may be reminded of it every morning. Perhaps he will agree to help if you're a good girl.

I think it would make a fine philosophy for you, Brooklyn-American blood aside.

Yeah, about that: I know you mean well, but the last thing a cat who scales stucco walls to visit the tops of kitchen cabinets needs is a lesson in audacity. If I was going to stitch anything over her sleeping spot, it would be "De l'valium, encore de l'valium, et toujours de l'valium!"

Love her for who she is Bob, not what you want her to be ;)

I want her to be a combination of Gisele Bundchen and Bill Gates; I'll settle for an animal that doesn't reenact the death-defying trapeze work of The Flying Karamazov Brothers at three in the morning.

(And to preempt Ken: Yes, I want Zoot to have Bill Gates' looks and Gisele Bundchen's money.)

I can't wait to hear Zoot's reaction to the Bill Gates comparison. But then, it's easy to picture either one of them curled up in a chair, rocking back and forth and dreaming of world domination. Bill has more money but Zoot has sharper claws.

Why does Zoot have to dream about world domination? She has nothing to do but eat, sleep and lick her girlie bits. She entertains herself at my and Baby's expense, and within the scope of her limited imagination, she has everything she can dream up. She's a fuzzy little id powered by Science Diet and catnip.

Thanks for the clarification. I assumed you meant Bill Gates's operating system and Gisele Bundchen's boyfriend.
bobhowe From: bobhowe Date: October 5th, 2004 07:58 am (UTC) (Link)
*laughing*

At that, her operating system does seem to crash quite often. But Leo DiCaprio wouldn't last fifteen seconds with Zoot: she'd eat him like a little fey bug.

I'd fork over hard cash to watch that on pay-per-view.

Hey, I didn't think it looked silly. I applauded the sentiment. Last week I was going in the door when I noticed a woman whose dog was peeing on the bushes in front of my building. I asked her to please curb her dog, and she gave me an irritated look and left. I should have taken a cue from the sign-painter.

I love that you had the self-control to be polite and she still had the nerve to be indignant. Unreal. I hope you mumbled a politically incorrect retort as she passed.

I love dogs more than anything- I am a dog person 100 percent. Any dog is welcome near me. But owners? They are among the worst the city has to offer, next to (ahem) smokers.

See, the thing I'm always worried about is, when my dog is peeing or taking a dump and there is other uncleaned-up-after dumpage lying around nearby, that one of these irrational motherfuckers with the signs is going to mistake me and my dog for the culprits. See, the guy's sentiment is understandable, but the way he's chosen to express it doesn't exactly give me the warm-fuzzy assurance that he can tell Al Qaeda from Iraq, so to speak.
