Cat Gets Existential

Cat States His Case In Letter to Santa

OLNY, MD: Local kitten, Martin Snickers passionately states his case to Santa why he was a 'good kitten' this year.  Martin states the following in his letter:

Dear Santa, 
I feel I need to explain some events that happened this year that could be misconstrued as possible bad behavior.  

First - The missing fish from the aquarium
Let me just say that I heard the fish talking about running/swimming away the day before he went missing, and the fact that I was alone with the fish the next day went he went missing is merely a coincidence.

Second - Jumping up on the dinner table and eating the chicken
As a house cat, I have sworn to protect and defend the inhabitants of said house.  I saw that the freshly roasted chicken posed a clear and present danger to the family, so I jumped up on the table to defend the family.

Third - Spilling of water on computer keyboard
Yes, I have been seen jumping up on the computer desk several times, but that doesn't mean I spilled the water.  I was exiting the room to go inform the owner that the wind from the open window was most likely the culprit.

So in conclusion, I have actually been a very good kitten this year and I look forward to your visit on Christmas.  I would very much like if you could bring me the following: string, catnip, and fluffy blankets.

- Martin Snickers

P.S. I'd really appreciate it if you could take the dog, or at least make sure he goes missing.

Indiana Jones Cat Oncovers New Roman Ruins

ROME, ITALY: Mirko Curti was chasing his cat through the streets of his village on Tuesday night when the cat inadvertently discovered a set of ancient Roman ruins.

 "The cat managed to get into a grotto and we followed the sound of its meowing," Curti told the Guardian.

When he caught up to the animal, it had crawled into an opening in the side of a cliff. Inside the opening, Curti stumbled upon a 2,000-year-old tomb "piled with bones" and ancient Roman urns. The tomb was discovered just outside a residential area in the Roman city of Via di Pietralata. Archeologists who were called to the site have speculated that it dates back to sometime between the 1st century B.C. and the 2nd century A.D.

Local Band Hits the Big Time

ARLINGTON, VA: The local rock band Faster Pussycat as they are collectively known just signed with Fur Ball Records for a 4 record deal. The band’s 3 members are Sid Kitty heading up lead vocals and guitar, Little Flea on bass and Ring Worms on drums.

However, just as the trio was poised to break into the big time, band tensions threatened to tear them apart. In a recent VH1 special “Behind the Meowsic” the band members reveal how Sid Kitty’s catnip addiction nearly cost him his life one night on the road.

Little Flea’s ego was also out of control as he attempted several times to take over the band and kick Sid Kitty out. Little Flea had 2 solo albums during the hiatus that never found an audience. Meanwhile Ring Worms was on his own downward spiral as he lost all his money at craps and turned to the inside of a milk bottle to drown his troubles.

The band was able to pull themselves back from the brink of disaster with the help of band producer Dave Calico. “I just got all the band members out to my recording studio out here in the Arizona desert to get away from all the negative influences. After a month of licking their wounds from the road they were ready to start recording again” noted Calico.

“Now we’re back on top of laundry pile so to speak thanks to Dave and the rest of the band” said Sid Kitty. Look for the release of Faster Pussycat’s new album next month titled “Reigning Cats and Dogs”.

FSU Fraternity Brother Nabbed With 3 Pounds of Catnip

TALLAHASSEE, FL: Florida State University, Kappa Alpha Tau (KAT) fraternity brother Cliff Skitch, or “Skitchey” as he’s known around campus was arrested for possession of 3 pounds of catnip. Campus police working ‘jointly’ with state police captured Skitchey during an undercover police drug buy.

“The suspect’s backpack was bulging with the 3 pounds of catnip when we observed him entering the student union” noted state police officer John McGuiness. “A bunch of cats were following him everywhere. He was obviously under the influence of the drug and we had to let him sleep it off after we brought him back to the station and paw-printed him.”

State police acting simultaneously as the Skitchey arrest raided the KAT fraternity house and made several more drug-related arrests. Police lined up the fraternity brothers to determine who was under the influence or not.

One of the fraternity brothers not arrested in the raid identified himself only as “Turtle” and commented on the arrests “Dude, this is totally un-cool! Skitchey was just going to pick up a pizza for us man. Me, Skitchey, and Zeek were just sitting around totally jonesing for some munchies. Skitchey was the only dude who sac-ed up for a food run. Dude deserves a Fu&$*&g medal!”

Turtle added that “This is totally bumming me out. We were supposed to have a mixer with the Pie Epsilon Tau (PET) chicks tonight and everyone knows those chicks are totally easy once they get a little loose (in a lower tone) if ya know what I mean. One dude said he heard those chicks were in heat.”

Skitchey and several other KAT fraternity brothers have all posted bail and are scheduled for trial at the end of the month.
