As promised from yesterday's post, here are pictures of my friend's cat. He has two full back legs and only stumps for front legs.
We've been talking about doing this sort of photo of him, so I do have permission from his owner. I even asked her before she left. This is a well loved cat so I don't want to hear any crap about how mean I am.
Besides, I called my dad first to be sure it passed his test. If he thought I was being mean, I certainly wouldn't post it. Of course, he's the one that drew the chalk outline around the dead rat and broken pottery and then posted it on Facebook. (I'm looking for this photo) Maybe he isn't the best one to give me advice on what is a faux pas and what isn't.
But anyway, let me introduce you to Boxer the Hutt:
It wasn't until later that I realized I didn't have R2D2 or C3PO in the picture. I wanted to re-take the picture with the two in there, but Katrina was feeling, "uncomfortable".
While Kat and I were digging for my old Star Wars figures, we both had another brilliant idea.
Boxer the Hutt took the army men down immediately. They didn't have a chance.
Neither did my vintage Fisher Price Little People:
He rolled over them and I had to dig them out from under his belly.
Afterwards, he got lots of loving and some cheese I found in their refrigerator.
Boxer is pretty old now. He has a brother that was adopted at the same
time. I didn't get to see him today but he is missing one of his legs as
well. My favorite story about Boxer was when he was a kitten. He was very agile and had no problem jumping up on the kitchen counter
(which of course wasn't allowed but you and I both know that cats do
whatever the hell they want). It was only when he wanted off the counter that
the problem arose. As a cat, how do you jump off the counter if you only
have two back legs? You can't. Boxer would always land on his face. Of course, it never stopped him and he'd do it frequently.
I'm looking for that rat picture. When I find it, I'll post it.
