    I had to kind of laugh at this. Mr. Rattus makes his own beer and Harv, my sweetie boy, sneaks in when Mr. Rattus isn't looking and starts licking the malt which is apparently a very tasty, albeit not too healthy, cat treat. So I have given the end product the name "Escupido del gato", or Cat Spit Ale. I'm in the process of designing a label which will, of course, incorporate the Harv's image.

    I had the funniest thing just happen. I'm minding my own business on the Fort (), when there is a big kerfuffle in the house. Mr. Tootles is cowering in the basement, afraid of something. There are plastic bags scattered about. Now, I leave plastic bags downstairs by the kitties litter box to use when I clean them. But I can't see how or why he is so scared. I coax him out from behind the couch, bring him upstairs, calmly talking to him so he isn't so jittery.

    Then, as I bring him into the hall, I hear the noise of more plastic bags. I look into the bedroom and lo and behold, there is Miss Gracie-kins, looking absolutely horrified. Perched on the end of my bed she is almost frozen stiff. She has her head through one of the handles of the plastic bag, which happens to be stuffed with many other plastic bags. As snoopy as she was, she got her head caught and managed to get her front paws out with the bag stuck about her middle tummy. She ran all over trying to get away from the bags she was attached to. Hence, the trail of pastic bags throughout the house. She was soooo scared. I just had to gently pick her up and free her. (while laughing my head off )

    Those damn plastic bag MONSTERS. They nab my little kitts when they go down to use their box. How horrifying

    What a coincidence! I have plastic bag monsters in my house too! However, the plastic bag monsters usually only attack when I've just gotten home from Walmart with canned cat food. One of my kitties got nosy one day and started rooting through a bag filled with some cans of soft food that I give them for treats. She ended up with the handle of the bag around her neck, and of course got spooked, so took off, leaving a trail of cans behind her. Oh did I laugh! But then, just to make my life difficult (or to get back at me for laughing at her) she ran behind the wall unit and left a can or two behind, just enough out of my reach that I had to get a broom to retreive them.

    misskitty and MeezerMom, that is hilarious thinking about your cats with bags stuck to them. I'm laughing just imagining it! A while back I got my cat one of those wands with the feather on the end so I could hold it and he would swat at it. Well I left it on the end of a table and somehow he got all twisted up in the string and it wasn't easy keeping him still to get him out. We haven't used it since, especially since I was worried he'd get caught in it when I wasn't home.

    My latest with "him" is that even though he now knows how to use the pet door, sometimes I'll see him out on the porch and go ahead and call him in. Well when I call him he just looks at me, but when the dog (who's inside and who the cat loves) comes to the door and looks at the cat, the cat all of a sudden comes in. So my dog can get the cat to come in but I can't

    Ahhh. Cats and bags. Twenty-some odd years ago, back when I was young and going out a lot, I had a cat named Leroy. Leroy was incredibly fussy about the state of his litter box (and I don't blame him), and though I cleaned it every day, he would refuse to use it if I had gone out in the evening and missed the cleaning deadline by a few hours. What Leroy would do is pull a plastic bag out of the bag supply receptacle, drag it to the middle of the kitchen floor and do his business on that. I have never had such a polite, considerate and, at the same time, insistent cat. He always got his point across without causing any undue trouble for anyone.

    Rattus, I LOVE IT! Mine was fastidious too, but always did her business in the litter box (my old one). But she would phsyically drag me to the litter box to scoop it.

    But one time I left it to soak and forgot about it, and must have fallen asleep when this wet angry cat jumps on me and curses me out. I go to the litter box soaking in the tub, and can you guess what was floating in it?

    Yup, even filled with water she did her business in the litter box, then got REALLY mad at me for it.

    She never was afraid of water though, used to get in the tub with me when I was soaking.

    Meezermom, Rattus, Glitternerfball:

    ArchieComicFan: My kitties got a feather fishing pole too. And Tootles loves it. He grabs the feather at the end and walks around the house, dragging the pole with it, looking very proud and masculine. He's such a great HUNTER of the JUNGLE

    Utah Group Offers Safe Haven for Cat Accused of Ambushing Avon Lady

    This story is both funny and sad at the same time.

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,200054,00.html
    BRIDGEPORT, Conn. A Utah organization is offering a safe haven to Lewis the cat, a Fairfield feline whose alleged vicious attacks on neighbors have landed his owner in court.

    Superior Court Judge Patrick Carroll is expected to decide Lewis' fate Tuesday when he considers an application for accelerated rehabilitation for the cat's owner, Ruth Cisero.

    Neighbors say they have been terrorized by Lewis, claiming the cat's long claws and stealth have allowed it to attack at least a half-dozen people and ambush the Avon lady as she was getting out of her car.

    The Best Friends Animal Society of Kanab, Utah, which claims to be the country's largest no-kill animal sanctuary, has offered to take Lewis free of charge.

    "If necessary to save the life of Lewis the cat, we agree to provide Lewis with a place to live out his life at our sanctuary," Russ Mead, Best Friends' general counsel, wrote in a letter to Carroll.

    Tuesday's hearing is to determine whether Cisero should get special probation and have her cat's life spared.

    Another judge told Cisero she would grant her special probation on the condition that she has Lewis put to death, which Cisero has refused to do.

    Eugene Riccio, Cisero's attorney, said Lewis enjoys life in southern New England and would prefer to stay here.

    The sanctuary in Utah can accommodate about 600 cats in climate-controlled bungalows and has specialists who know how to handle cats with behavior problems.

    Mead said Lewis would be no threat to the public in Utah because the sanctuary's closest neighbor is Denny's Wigwam, a curio shop about four miles away.

    The owner of the shop, Victor Sandonato, said he has already been warned that Lewis might be moving to his neighborhood.

    "I live with a cat just like Lewis, and I live with danger every time I go home at night," he said, adding, "I'm from South Jersey, so I don't take any crap from a cat."

    Ahhh, the cat that ambushed the Avon lady - Sweet!

    You guys have had me cracking up at your bag stories. As everyone else has shown, cats love the darn things...

    Buffy: What is this?
    Willow: A doodle. I do doodle. You too. You do doodle, too. ("Gingerbread")

    Xander: Damn it! You know what? I'm sick of this crap. I'm sick of being the guy who eats insects and gets the funny syphilis. As of this moment, it's over. I'm finished being everybody's butt monkey! ("Buffy vs. Dracula")

    Archie, I love the guy who will "not take crap from any cat". Cats attacking people? Hmm. I have never, ever been attacked by a cat. I know all the cats in the neighbourhood, by name, and am on a stroking basis with them. You can tell if a cat is a bit off. Cat attacking someone getting out of a car. Sounds fishy to me. (I have always felt cats have a bad rap compared to dogs, for precisely teh reason that they do not do this sort of thing).
