A little genealogical observation

February 5, 2007 at 3:24 pm (General, TV)

Observing the feline these past couple weeks, and here’s what I’ve noticed:

  • He’s missing a canine, and has bad dental work overall.
  • He’s a chirpy little thing, constantly complaining, but is vague about his complaints.
  • He makes it a point to sleep between the milliner and I, ensuring that we not touch.
  • Compared with Frances, he’s kinda, well, slow.
  • He’s absolutely fascinated with soccer, going so far as to repeatedly whack at the TV. I think he roots for Aston Villa. (Hence my belief that he’s touched.)
  • Finally, unknown parentage.

Conclusion? I do believe our cat is British. It’s a burden, but I’ll learn to live with it.

    The soccer picture is so cute.

    Does he talk about the weather a lot? And if you stand still, does he form an orderly queue behind you? Then he’s definitely British.

    He just talks. A lot. He needs to be picked up and consoled.
    In retrospect, I’m thinking he might be French. Because, wow, he likes running away from us.

    Nah, I think he is just your average male, likely the bastardly son of a queen. She inadvertently fell for a toothless tom, and in the heat of the moment, she created your soccer addicted, tooth impared, whinning jealous male.

    Aah, you know I’m teasin. You are lucky. he is a cool cat.

    Hey – I lost a cat in Lincoln about 8 years ago.
    He was a slow twat too – and a Villa fan. I always hated that…
    You don’t think???

    My male cats tend to be more whiny, more sucky and slower than my girl. But they also have no pride and will get love any way they can…
