To make the cats not care or the monkeys fly?
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

Nobody owns any cat - you've got the relationship backwards, they own you... :wink:

Cor! :shock: That is one very daft but very, very lucky moggy!

. . . can't help feeling that there aught to be a joke in there somewhere about 'Why did the cat cross the road?' . . . any suggestions for punchlines? :clown:

For anyone who has lost a much loved furry best friend or member of the family, of whatever species, there's a really nice article in the DT from a man who has just lost his beloved cat, Dave, arguing for more understanding from the population at large of the profound grief that pet owners feel on the loss of their four-pawed loved ones

Just gone into the kitchen with the good intention of taking out my frustrations at stupid Guardian articles by pretentious morons out on the washing-up, only to find Felix the kitten making off with the scouring sponge out through the cat-flap! :shock:

That's the second one he's had from the kitchen sink in a week, not to mention the sponge from the upstairs bathroom AND the nailbrush from the hand basin . . . so my question is this:

What the hell is the little bugger up to?!?
