Confirmation of being an idiot

Postby windmill john » Thu Jul 19, 2018 5:39 pm

I've known for a while I should have my head examined.

Updating my picture site, actually just changing it.
Probably should not have sold Walter.
Probably should not have sold Friedrich.

But... I wish I still had my ex Carbinieri T3, it looked like a real motorcycle (Luddite head on)

I wish I had never sold my Le Mans and I did that in 1980 or so, still wishing.

A black cat choosing you is certainly a sign of non-idiocy but it is that way round, not the other.

I just wish our black cat, Skippy would like Katy, our feral beryl mass murdering cat.

Don’t tell Skippy, but she’s a bit... erm... simple. I just don’t think she gets it... anything!
Scared of her shadow, but she loves being stroked though.

We had a black cat for about 18 yrs, we now have 2 ginger toms, anyone
who is owned by a cat can't be an idiot.

Here is the proof.

Excerpts from a Dog's Diary......
8:00 am - Dog food! My favorite thing!
9:30 am - A car ride! My favorite thing!
9:40 am - A walk in the park! My favorite thing!
10:30 am - Got rubbed and petted! My favorite thing!
12:00 pm - Lunch! My favorite thing!
1:00 pm - Played in the yard! My favorite thing!
3:00 pm - Wagged my tail! My favorite thing!
5:00 pm - Milk bones! My favorite thing!
7:00 pm - Got to play ball! My favorite thing!
8:00 pm - Wow! Watched TV with the people! My favorite thing!
11:00 pm - Sleeping on the bed! My favorite thing!


And now


Excerpts from a Cat's Daily Diary. ..
Day 983 of my captivity. My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.
They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.
Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a 'good little hunter' I am. Bastards. There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of 'allergies.' I must learn what this means and how to use it to my advantage.
Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs.
I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released - and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.The bird has got to be an informant. I observe him communicating with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now................


And yes you should have kept all your bikes. Just get a bigger home.

This is a stray cat I call Fatpuss guarding my bikes.

She lives outside in a makeshift kennel and calls everyday for food etc.

In the winter she will sneak in and have a sleep on the back of my sofa.

She is still a bit Feral and prefers to live outside.

Hi
I just checked and "Grooming is when someone builds an emotional connection with you to gain your trust for the purposes of abuse, exploitation or trafficking, people can be groomed on-line or face-to-face, by a stranger or by someone they know, for example a friend!"

Yep reminds me of most of the cats I have lived with
-- some do it by pretending to be your friend (but we know if they were locked in with us when we had a heart attack what they would eat)
-- some by being so scary you would not want to give them the worm tablets or clip their nails -- but pretend to be angels at the vets

They have these good points
1 erm
2 erm, erm?

And there less good ones
1 cold feet in the bed at 3am
2 sick up food
3 bring in presents
4 some without heads
5 which they hide behind furniture
6 scratch wall paper
7walk on worktops
8 spray their territory
9 refuse to eat
10 steal your food
11 beg at table
12 vets bills
13refusing to get in the travel basket
14 escape from the travel basket
15 leap out the back of the sidecar
16 fight with other cats
17 worms
18 hide- under beds in cupboards
19 jump out of upstairs windows
20 litter trays-- even coming in to use them
21 fleas
22 clime curtains
23 knock ornaments off of shelves
24 walk on keyboards
25 get in the way of diy- under floors, paint, ladders
26 hears on clothes
27 ladder stockings
28 bring in dirt
29 go up the chimney
30 Die and leave you bereft

Did I miss anything out?

Dead animals are OK.
But not OK when they bring in a live rat which then hides itself away from all contact with anything which could harm it.

Also battering hell out of the cat flap, because he wants you to open
the door for him. But he does get disappointed a lot trying that one.
