Possibly - he (JD) does get VERY jealous when I even TALK to another male (of any species - even Scotsmen).

So what can I say?

;-)

One of the few poems I enjoyed at school.

Macavity's a Mystery Cat: he's called the Hidden Paw -
For he's the master criminal who can defy the Law.
He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard, the Flying Squad's despair:
For when they reach the scene of crime - Macavity's not there!

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity,
He's broken every human law, he breaks the law of gravity.
His powers of levitation would make a fakir stare,
And when you reach the scene of crime - Macavity's not there!
You may seek him in the basement, you may look up in the air -
But I tell you once and once again, Macavity's not there!

Mcavity's a ginger cat, he's very tall and thin;
You would know him if you saw him, for his eyes are sunken in.
His brow is deeply lined with thought, his head is highly domed;
His coat is dusty from neglect, his whiskers are uncombed.
He sways his head from side to side, with movements like a snake;
And when you think he's half asleep, he's always wide awake.

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity,
For he's a fiend in feline shape, a monster of depravity.
You may meet him in a by-street, you may see him in the square -
But when a crime's discovered, then Macavity's not there!

He's outwardly respectable. (They say he cheats at cards.)
And his footprints are not found in any file of Scotland Yard's.
And when the larder's looted, or the jewel-case is rifled,
Or when the milk is missing, or another Peke's been stifled,
Or the greenhouse glass is broken, and the trellis past repair -
Ay, there's the wonder of the thing! Macavity's not there!

And when the Foreign Office find a Treaty's gone astray,
Or the Admiralty lose some plans and drawings by the way,
There may be a scrap of paper in the hall or on the stair -
But it's useless to investigate - Mcavity's not there!
And when the loss has been disclosed, the Secret Service say:
`It must have been Macavity!' - but he's a mile away.
You'll be sure to find him resting, or a-licking of his thumbs,
Or engaged in doing complicated long-division sums.

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity,
There never was a Cat of such deceitfulness and suavity.
He always has an alibi, and one or two to spaer:
At whatever time the deed took place - MACAVITY WASN'T THERE!
And they say that all the Cats whose wicked deeds are widely known
(I might mention Mungojerrie, I might mention Griddlebone)
Are nothing more than agents for the Cat who all the time
Just controls their operations: the Napoleon of Crime!

T.S.Eliot.

I was watching my cat George licking himself this morning, I aid to the wife, "I wish I could do that" she replied...
...Ask George nicely, he might let you.

This morning, he was chastised by me for going after Lucy. He hates it if I just pick him up and hold him.

At softball practice they want to know when I am brining the manly cat to quote John Belushi.

I was writing before I had to leave for practice. Yerbie came in, yelled at me and beckoned me to follow. He wanted to play. So I slapped him around (which he enjoys, silly cat) then he was most displeased when I got in the car.

It's hard being a cat.

Violet, the feral I feed, in in heaven these days however. There's been a population explosion of roof rats lately and she brings me one most days to exchange for canned mackeral which apparently tastes better than rat.

we had some sad cat news yesterday, one of emma's daughters got run over while my cousins were on holiday. she was only a year old.
i told emma but i don't think she understood but i'm letting her sleep on my bed, george is with her and they are snuggled up together.

Sorry bout that Lucy. I spent two hours in the yard weeding after work. Yerbie watched through the window and was unamused. He got a good thumping later.

Sorry to hear about Emma's kitten, Lucy. What a horrible thing to happen.
