(No, I didn't get a cat for Christmas. I'm not allowed to own pets. That cat just found a warm spot on my car.)

You don't understand. It is a familiar.

"I'm not allowed to own pets."

Is this because of the apt. in Brooklyn?

Dan from Madison said...

Yes, no more cats for you, especially Manx Cats.

Beth said...

What does that mean? Who forbids you to own pets? There's a story here, yes?

Oh, and Merry Christmas!

Potential serial killers should not have pets. That's why the tried to stop Ellen Degeneres. She tried and gave it up before something bad happened. A word to the wise.

Wow. Nice ride. Is blogging paying well or the UW?

Ron: It's not your pet, it's Silvio's pet!

No, Silvio is the cat's pet car.

Yeah, I looked at it a couple days ago and decided it was wrong for the Christmas season.

Nice car.

Cats love to sit on the warm hood during the winter. I had a cat that sat on the hood of my black car. Little paw prints every where. If I was obsessed with my car's shine, it would have been a nightmare.

I like cats a lot, but I'm incredibly allergic to them. Alas. I'm rooting for genetic engineering to produce cheap hypoallergenic cats.

What's wrong with my engine, Mr. Mechanic?

Dunno, but it sure is furry.

See, Dan was at the blogger meetup, so he knows the story.

The cat. The only animal where expressions of affection often include blood loss on the part of the object of affection.

Nice ride.

That is a freaking big cat!

Had an 'aha' moment earlier today, but could not post 'till now. I think Manx cat is a good clue: They have no tail. Maybe when our hostess was a kid, she mishandled a small rodent and caused its tail to come off--this is pretty common I understand. Maybe Ann's mom reacted by forbidding her from ever having a pet again.

Or it could just be a temporary thing, what with living in a Brooklyn apt for a year...

Swat that vile beast off your car with a broom! You have no idea of what cat urine can do to car paint!
