My poor cat. :( by johnnythemonkey on 5 January 2009 2:08am
Macavity has been sneezing all morning and is not at all herself.

Johnny, the bottom line is - we are all different, but we can all get along. Don't expect us to be different, and we won't expect you to be different. Peace :D

If you like, we can expect you to be an ass, and you can be. And some of us will have soft feelings for cats, and you will just have to deal with that :D
I don't think it's so hard :)

WHAT'S your cat called? Does it have bad teeth?

I assume your original post was edited?

We're all different. We're all individuals. We've all got to work it out for ourselves. We can't let anyone tell us what to do. Otherwise....

Does no one care about poor Macavity ?
Re: My poor cat. :( by mrsteabag on 5 January 2009 7:09pm
Poor kitty! I hope Macavity gets better soon. Poor you, too. Please give her a pat for me.
Re: My poor cat. :( by TERRY S on 5 January 2009 8:06pm
Yes, I do. Poor kitty. Take her to the vet if it gets worse won't you, Hon'?
Re: My poor cat. :( by MMMmmm... on 5 January 2009 9:36pm
'I think the only Macavity may be the macavity in your head, where your mabrainity is supposed to be' Is that what you want Johnny? A whole crew of mini-me-monkeys? :)

I'd rather be a creme egg.

Or a cat.

Fancy that. :D

*So many possibilities...*

Of course you know there can only be one shining 'Johnny the Monkey' star *cough, cough*

All smiles (in-between-some-choking :)

Love to all

I thought you thought all this stuff was terribly boring, John. I thought this whole thread was a joke, to be honest.

But in case there actually is a cat named Macavity with a cold, I hope she gets better.

Of course Macavity exists, you numpties. I wrote this poem for her this morning to ease her morning sickness and her flu.

Macavity - The Mystery Cat
a poem by T. S. Eliot.

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 on 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!

Macavity'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 doomed;
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 finds a Treaty's gone astray,
Or the Admiralty lose some plans and drawings by the way,
There may be a scap of paper in the hall or on the stair--
But it's useless of investigate--Macavity'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 Macacity,
There never was a Cat of such deceitfulness and suavity.
He always has an alibit, or one or two to spare:
And 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!
