Nightmare on Elmeow Street: Curious Cat Wants to Know…

Posted on Apr 12, 2010 by Lisa Ricard Claro   9 Comments | Posted in cat · dog · penny · rigby · tabby

To prove my fondness for canines, I asked my pet to post the photo on the left of me with Penny, one of the pups with whom I coexist. She is a cute little thing, isn’t she? A bit kibble-brained but, to be fair, that is part of her considerable charm.

My other canine companion, Rigby, pictured on the right, is…ah, me-ow, I must admit, quite brilliant, in spite of his clownish mugging for the camera.  He is a thinker, and quite the challenging housemate. He is the founder of FETCH (Finding Earth’s True Canine Heroes), an organization devoted to the canonization of faithful dogs. He is angling for his own reality show.

There, now, see? I like dogs. I just happen to think felines have more class.  We do not, after all, burp so loudly as to disturb our pets’ rest, or create malodorous blasts of air from our nether regions.  Ah, well, I suppose it is simply a matter of one’s preference…which segues nicely to my question of the week:

Imagine…you are alone in a secluded house in the woods.  Night arrives and with it a terrible thunder storm. The electricity fails and you descend with a flashlight to the dark cellar to inspect the fuse box. The door locks behind you, and you realize you are not alone. You will be trapped until morning, when a neighboring cat (oh, okay, fine…and a dog, too) hears your wails and runs for help.  With whom would you choose to be trapped and why? Please choose from the following:

a) Hannibal Lecter; b) Freddie Krueger; c) Lizzie Borden; d) The Joker; or e) Lady GaGa.

Consider your answers carefully.  Remember, I’m aiming for world domination here, so I need to know these things.

    Uh…yeah….Well, they're all pretty darn scary, but I guess I'll have to go with Lady Gaga. Although she does make me GAG, at least I don't think she'd commit any physical crimes. :)Very funny post,again, Miss Feline!!

    Love the pictures! My choice would be Lizzie as I think we could become friends before she'd decide to do away with me 🙂

    Wonderful deductive reasoning, humans! As you say, Lady GaGa is unlikely to commit physical mayhem; however, she does remind me of an out-of-control Maine coon cat I once knew who thought it great sport to put her tongue in electrical outlets.As to Ms. Borden, her cat Boris wrote a memoir, "Axe Me Anything," detailing his years with the accused murderess. Boris contends Ms. Borden wouldn't hurt a flea, as evidenced by his chronic itching and hair loss. He did, however, report her to PETA.Meow,Tabby

    Lol! None of the above, even though I may be the last one in America who really does not know anything about Lady Gaga, except that I have heard her name, of course. I'll have go by Becky's advice on that one.

    So, you decline to choose. You are obviously a spy, but for which organization I am unsure. I will watch you carefully. I may have to visit your blog for clues.Meow,Tabby

    I would choose Heath Ledger as the Joker. He was one talented young man and he is easy on the eyes, even with the white makeup, poorly applied red lipstick and green hair.:D

    Well, I certainly can't argue with your good taste. I always thought that if Mr. Ledger's Joker owned a cat it would be a Sphynx (hairless breed) and he could apply his Joker make-up to the cat. We felines look good in anything, you know.Meow -Tabby
