Undateable

Epic mosh pit. Get your elbows up, motherfuckers!
All that being said -- what the hell, lady!?
Walking in the room scattering cat food like you're feeding a bunch of chickens -- wasswrongwitchu?

Look, I know you've got like 130 friggin' cats under your roof, which clearly makes you a shoe-in for the crazy cat lady hall of fame -- so you probably think you know a little something about taking care of the common household feline -- but take it from someone who knows, behavior like that is gonna get you eaten.
Seriously, cats don't screw around when it comes to stuff like this.
Back in the day the oldest of my two cats got tired of seeing me on the couch cuddling and petting on this incredibly sexy girl I was really digging, so when I got up to go refill our drinks she sauntered over to where my date was sitting and proceeded to drop a deuce on her shoulder.
Not near her. Not close enough so she could smell it like some territorial marking.
My cat started to take a dump on my date.
It was only sheer luck that let me see what she was trying to do seconds before it happened, which enabled me to dive across the room like MacGuyver so I could pull the girl to safety -- but that didn't stop her from having a jealous cat jump on her head while she was trying to sleep later that night, or her clothes and shoes from getting shed upon whenever the opportunity presented itself.

The two of them eventually reached a semblance of peace, but that was only after a bunch of catnip, a lot of patience, and the introduction of a new kitten (come to think of it, Aja tried to shit on her too). And even then -- now I've got to deal with two jealous felines judging anyone I try to bring home with me.
But if there's anything that proves just how much the cat runs
this house -- it's the shocking discovery I made the other day.
As many of you probably already know, I got my son a beagle puppy for Christmas this year. He's adorable and cute and all the other things that puppies invariably are, but for all his cuteness -- he's also kinda stupid (the pretty ones usually are, amirite ladies?)
To wit, housebreaking him has been a nightmare.
Although he (and I, lets be fair here -- I had to learn a few new habits too) is getting a lot better about knowing where and when to drop off his daily batches of baked goods -- this progress hasn't come without a lot of accidents, carpet stains, and raised voices along the way.

One major difference between dogs and cats is that dogs are very expressive with their eyes. There's a look a mutt will give you when he knows that he's done something bad -- sort of an ashamed half glance that lets you know it's time to put him into the kennel (which has become the conditioned punishment for soiling the rug).

But the other day I came into the living room and found the puppy already in the kennel of his own accord and already giving me the "I done a bad thing, Paw" look. I closed the gate on him, but then when I went looking around the place -- I couldn't find anything. No spots, no stains, no chewed-up stuff of any kind.

In fact, I was just about to let him back out of his makeshift cell when I smelled that familiar foul odor telling me that maybe he had done something. I tracked it down only to realize that he indeed had left a present inside the house.
But it wasn't on the carpet.
It was in the litterbox.
Damn cat's such a control freak she's telling the dog where to poop now. It's friggin crazy. I've got one of those boxes with the cover. I don't even know how he got his big ass in there, much less how he squeezed back out. But the evidence inside (oh the joys of pet ownership) was undeniable -- he had done the deed where all cats are supposed to, just like she told him to.
Seriously, what other motivation could he possibly have had for doing such a thing?

That is most excellent. I need to train my cat to take a dump on bad dates. Pointers?

Women are like cats: moody, demanding, aloof, and they act like they're doing you a favor when you want sex.

Ok that is AWESOME he shat in the litter box. Man that look they give when they know they messed up KILLS me everytime. One time I had friends over and one smelled something and asked my poodle if he pooted. Pookie looked at her, hung his head, and jumped off the couch. I almost died.

I sneeze all over this post!

I am so anti-cat right now!

After being lightheaded, and at death's door after being around baby tiger killer cat! Fuck a cat and all that they stand for! Crazy thing is I took allergy medicine that day. Ugh!!!

but I can't front that's pretty fuck-awesome if she got your puppy to shat in the litter box...I always wondered why there was no litter box for dogs...maybe you can invent that lol

As for being in the kennel already...yea King has done that...whenever I come home and he's in the basement and the door is open...I know he's done something wrong....but with him getting old and battling arthritis he don't give a shit about punishment...he's all I'm old now fuck you and your rules bitch!

and your cats would probably try to love all over me...seems whenever I'm around cats they just run to me...the little evil fuckers know I'm allergic to them so they get all up in my face and shit...it never fails...ugh! achoo!!!

and I must say that pic with you and the cat HAWT!!! damn I wanna do you!!! did I just type that? hehehehehe

my cats judge the guys i bring home. the big fat one is usually cool with everyone [so when he ignores someone it's a bad sign], but the small twitchy one exclusively likes nice sensitive guys.

ps i agree with bef about the you + kitty picture. meow.

Tricia -- Training a cat? I'm not sure that's how it works. I think they train us.

WIGSF -- Sounds like you need to sleep with your cat a little more (wait.. what?)

Gem -- If he did it all the time it would be EPIC, but it's so far just an occasional thing. Her whooping his ass whenever he comes close though, that's pretty much constant. Kinda like your poodle farting, apparently ;)

Bef -- In my experience most cats can sniff out people who are naturally uncomfortable or allergic around them, and that's usually the signal for them to CRAWL ALL OVER THEM. It's part of what makes them fun :)

Satorical -- I totally agree. That chicken feed theory is only going to end up in starving some of those animals, and that's completely unacceptable.

Jersey -- the twitchy one, lol. I've got one of those, but years of spoiling has made her kinda fat. I think secretly cat people love the ones who hate or fear everyone but them. It's sort of a private unconditional adoration, you know?

It's not just dates that feel the cat rage at casa de Hex. Once when the alpha cat at his place decided we'd played enough Playstation basketball, it walked over and deliberately stepped on the power button.

I can't make this cat shit up.
Hex said…
Monster -- I remember that. Cat going all mom on us and shutting off the game and sending us to bed early. Totally not cool.

I love cats and dogs! Is that a picture of your actual puppy? Because if so....I'm gonna steal him he's so cute! Although my dog, Maximus, would be PISSED if I brought another dog home. He's already jealous of my bunny.

I'm allergic to cats but I don't care. As soon as I can I'm gonna get one.
