...and you thought YOU were having a bad day...

I can't remember where this happened, but this is a news story that I have been following. You see, this lady had several cats, and she had a big plastic cat food dispenser in her garage. Ah, but lately, she noticed that the food was disappearing faster than usual, and she was wondering what was going on. One night, she went into the garage to put more cat food in the dispenser, when she noticed a REALLY FAT CAT stuck in the doggie-door that her cats would use to come in from outside and chow down. Well, you might remember that the cat food had been disappearing at an alarming rate. The lady put two and two together, and speculated that another cat from somewhere in the neighborhood had been coming in and pilfering cat food. A "cat burglar", if you will. Only, now, the thief was caught...wedged tightly in the small frame of the doggie door! Of course, I don't think things would've been any better for the cat, had it become stuck in a "kitty door"...anyway, this story has evidently made the NATIONAL NEWS, proving once and for all that we're so sick of Prezzident Bush, Politics in General, and the stupid Iraq war in particular, that we as a nation are HUNGRY for something, anything, to take our minds off the misery!

Well, of course everyone knows that CATS think they rule the world. Truly, house pets with an attitude. Always scheming, always pouncing on things, seemingly aloof all the time, having no use for humans other than as food providers. So, dear reader...may I take you on a tour of the typical CAT'S MIND...

Another pet-related story caught my attention, and this one happened in Portland, Oregon; I'm not sure how widely circulated this one was...Portland's Tri-Met bus system recently became an animal carrier, only if for a little while. At the end of his shift, one of the Portland bus drivers was surprised to find a yellowish-white dog (looked like a lab-mix to me), cowering in the back of his bus; it turned out the dog actually got on the bus all by itself (all hail mounted video cameras!) and spent the day riding around the city. Reportedly, officials were p.o.'ed because the dog had no bus fare. I'M JUST KIDDING!!! The dog's name? Well, when news of this rapid-transit hound made the TV news, his owner stepped forth to claim him. And the dog's name...get this..."BUSTER"!!! A true case of serendipitous canine poetic justice!

So, really, those who are saying "the world is going to the dogs", are probably more correct than they will never know. Arf!
