Secret Life Of Cats

Okay, I admit it--I'm not much of a cat lover. Over the years I have occasionally run over, I mean come across a cat I liked. But thinking about it, the reason I liked the cat was because it acted somewhat like a dog. It was genuinely playful, liked to hang out with me, and had a personality that wasn't turned on when it wanted food, and turned off at all other times. Know what I mean? Well, I have a couple of great friends who have a bunch of cats. They were her gift to the marriage, but he had to fight them off in order to sit next to her, eat dinner alone, watch a show, and just about anything and everything married people like to do. He knew that, win or lose, it was a turf war. He won. But not long ago his wife spent some time in the northwest, leaving him all alone with the cat gang. This short cartoon is something of what happened every morning while she was away. You'll like it. . .unless you like cats, in which case you'll think it's an unfair characterization, and then you'll start yeowling. . .like a cat.

    Hey Ralph! Took me all day (well, midst other activities) to find the cartoon which is the centerpiece of the cat story. Now that I see it, I'm amazed that the guy in the bed IS the daddy-of-cats in your story!! Right?
