"Cats & Dogs," the Movie: This new movie casts
cats in a disparaging light. It depicts them as evil Ninjas, organizing for world domination. I've never had any
problems with my three
kitties . .
. Wilbur, drop those numchucks!
Pig Cloning: Pigs should be allowed to clone things. After all,
Current Affairs: Dunno. I've never had an affair with a currant!
What's this about you suffering from an identity crisis? What identity
crisis? I'm a 500-lb. cat.
Arnold's Book Club: This week we're reading "Tiger's
Revenge" by Claude Balls.
My Most Recent Embarrassing Moment: Standing in line for an hour to
see the movie "Cast Away," and realizing later that it wasn't about
cats and the title wasn't "Cats Away."
Facing the music: And it gets worse--I just heard that Beethoven's Fur
Elise isn't about a cat.
Pinnacle Moments: Becoming an unofficial
member of the Planetary Society. Pssst . . . don't tell 'em I joined.
You Do Me A Favor?: If any of you come across a copy of the movie
"Ffolkes" (aka "North Sea Hijack"), I'll swap you for
it--one of my tusks that busted off. You see, this movie is my all-time
favorite. It's about a cat-loving man who battles terrorists threatening to
blow up an oil rig. In the movie, cats are depicted as positive role models
and worthy objects of affection. If you're interested in the swap--your video
for my tusk--just email me for more details at: firstname.lastname@example.org
WEEK: Taking the cat out of catastrophe . . .
