Fix My Healthcare Now



Washinton Bob Gibbs


The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.

Wars are, of course, as a rule to be avoided; but they are far better than certain kinds of peace.

The pacifist is as surely a traitor to his country and to humanity as is the most brutal wrongdoer.

- Theodore Roosevelt

If cats are dumb animals, why are they living in the same house, eating food with more protein, sleeping in the same bed (whether you know it or not), have their own bathroom that somebody else cleans and hanging around the house while you are at work?

I know 'dumb' in the previous means mute, unable to speak. If you think a cat is unable to speak, you have obviously never neglected to feed the cat, clean his litter box or to leave his preferred bedding out where he can get to it.

The buzzer on the clothes dryer means it is time to roll over.

Body heat is sufficient reason to sleep with someone.

Small dead animals make great gifts.

Meet people at the door. This will make them want to fix you food.

If you need attention, make a hacking noise near a brand new piece of furniture.

Night time is a good time to play. Once you wake up a playmate, they aren't doing anything, anyway.

Sleep on people. They are soft and warm and won't get you as wet as a waterbed will if you claw them.

Any time is a good time for personal hygiene.

Toy mousies get hungry. Put them in your kibble dish so they can eat.

When in doubt, find the warmest place in the house and take a nap.

Watching people take a shower is a cat's horror movie.

What is this privacy thing of which you speak? (While sitting on the bathroom vanity and bumping heads.)

Cats are solar powered.

I should stay home and sleep with the cat instead of going to work.

I didn't say they were good things :)

On July 5, 2010 my wife's cat Rembrandt passed away. We now have three cats, an American shorthair polydactl named Dust Bunny and a Maine coon cat named Caramel Sundae, both of whom joined us as kittens and another Maine coon cat named Bowie, who was two years old when he moved in.

Some Things The New Cats Taught Me

The difficulty of removing a cat from your chair increases with the cube of the number of cats resident.

Nothing in all the world is as cool as a crumpled up sheet of paper.

No bed, cushion or pillow is as comfortable as an open book.
