We’re here at Pharyngula and it’s still …. Caturday!

So … PZ is in Romania and the World Clock shows it’s the wee hours of the morning there. Little doubt then that he is probably fast asleep.

What could possibly be more harmless than this? Or a better time to post it …?

    I’m afraid, utterly terrified in fact, that you’ve made a category mistake, Sastra. There is no day for cats.

    For this mistake, a cat will be gored, and you will punished accordingly. You will not be eaten first.

    Cute night at PZ’s place? Awesome. I would recommend this for extreme cuteness as well – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lu5MYS7804k

    Sastra,
    Thank you for acknowledging Caturday. I loved the video.
    PZ will not be happy when he sees what you have done, but we cat lovers will defend you.

    I moved to a new town. Found an affordable apartment.. When leaving said apartment with the prospective landlord I noticed a cat hanging around. “Ah yes, the apartment comes with this cat”, said he. So I was stoked, a cool apartment, with a cat! yay! cut to a month later, my boyfriend was sitting on my bed and the cat curled under his bent knees. Then her water broke, she was having kittens (I guess I assumed she was fixed). She had four kittens, one went to live on a fromagerie in the hills, they named her Frida. One went to live with a friend, his name was Bear. One went to live on a farm where he later died in a brutal battle against a flock of geese, his name was Lou. Mama (the original) and the last kitten, Yoda live with me. They show up every night at about 6:30pm and slam my screen door for food. They are awesome.

    They are freaking scary, right? (I think they are far too close to their ancestral theropods, AKA, T- Rex!!!!!) There is this one in our local park, I call him The Sheriff. He keeps all us humans in line.

    I spit and spit and I can’t get the taste out of my mouth. Cats are nasty killing machines that have learned to play cute and ingratiate themselves into the human emotions while infecting us with toxoplasmosis and altering our behavior. They have no honour and no loyalty. A man trapped in the wilderness in a snowed in cabin with a dog, the dog would starve to death with him. A cat would try to eat him.

    While I enjoy your informative posts, Sastra, I see this as a serious breach of trust. There’s lots of room on the Internet for pictures of “cute” cats. Spare my gag relex and leave them off sites that don’t belong to you. Seriously. I hope PZ slaps your peepee good for this, metaphorically speaking of course.

    The fluffy ball will grow into a killing machine. Grown-up, it might chew through your throat or smother you by lying on your nose and mouth while you are asleep. Let sleeping cats lie–far away from you.

    or smother you by lying on your nose and mouth while you are asleep.

    You’ve never had cat fur up your nose then. Explosive sneezies, cat leaves in a damn quick hurry.

    As any student of the history of polar exploration can tell you, if a man were trapped in the wilderness in a snowed in cabin with a dog, and they were in danger of death by starvation, the man would shoot the dog and eat it.

    The true sin of the cat, in such trying straits, would be providing the man with a much smaller meal.

    I am with Sastra on this – cute little kitteh!

    Sorry PZ, but I like both cute, fluffy kittehs and awesomely betentacled cephalopods.

    Impossible? Not for me.

    To shamelessly steal from Walt Whitman, all I can say is this;

    Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes…

    I spit and spit and I can’t get the taste out of my mouth.

They have no honour and no loyalty. A man trapped in the wilderness in a snowed in cabin with a dog, the dog would starve to death with him. A cat would try to eat him.

    Let’s not forget of the position we are speaking from here – we humans really are in no position to point fingers at any other species. We beat cats hollow when it comes to unnecessary cruelty and violence, and our sapience really leaves us with little excuse – we know that such things are socially harmful and cause needless suffering, and we do them anyway.

    Imagine two humans trapped in that snowed in cabin? What are the odds that ‘cabin fever’ and paranoia would set in and have them at one another’s throats? Doubly so if there was some pre-existing petty grievance between them born of historical conflict or some irrational bigotry? It seems quite possible that at least one of them would never get the chance to starve…

    I think you might well be better off with either the cat or the dog.

    Where you got that bullshit I don’t know, but citation needed. Truth is, the cat would starve to death with hir human as well.

    Yes, they’re beautifully designed killing machines. Also they’re affectionate companions, gorgeous creatures, and cute as hell.

    So there.

    Oh, um, PZ’s awake now?

    Argh. I’m trying to bottle feed some kittens right now. They’ll try to nurse on one of my dogs. (The only one who doesn’t think their slow squirrels… apparently the best kind of squirrels if your a dog.) But they don’t want that damn bottle. To look into those tiny, adorable eyes is to look into the eyes of frustration.

    …which I first read as “awesomely bespectacled cephalopods”.

    Best short comment ever.

    They have no honour and no loyalty. A man trapped in the wilderness in a snowed in cabin with a dog, the dog would starve to death with him. A cat would try to eat him.

    And? Does it help anybody if you both starve to death?

    Honour is for Klingons. Pragmatism forever.

    (And I recommend you try to get a quoll as a pet. Getting the permit isn’t trivial, though.)

    Cat videos/pictures … The reason the Internet was invented.

    And to think that just a few years ago it was a Well-Known Fact that the Internet is for pr0n. :-)
