I sprayed him with a squirt gun as soon as I got the shot. Shardul is absolutely terrified about getting wet, he will touch the water surface, but I don't think he dares put his whole paw in... yet.

Feed the cat only half his regular tuna fish meal and then the bet is on for real.

I give odds that the bowl will get knocked over first, Bob will drowned in the air, then the cat will eat it.

Bob died years ago, but lives on via the miracle of the interweb tubes.

...

I don't know if this was intentional, since it was used so consistently, but shouldn't the pool read 'than'?

edit:
for that matter, I suppose it's a poll, not a pool

My big boy stared, perhaps tapped the glass once in a while. He just look moon faced in the watery reflection.

Now the other bastid in the house managed to hide in my room when I left in the morning (sneaky sob) and I locked the door and it had "fun", rummaged thru lots of stuff - then killed 4 of my fish - probably killed it and went on to the next one, leaving the manhandles dried bodies on the floor - when I came home it was after the only one left alive. Didn't even bother to eat them. Oh and left a nice big pile in the middle of the rug too. I really dislike that cat.

Do your cats hate you Tude? My room mate has 2 cats, and they're aren't evil (much). The one faceplant's into the windows when she sees a lizard run by outside, or rolls around chasing her tail. If the door to the bathroom where there litter box is closed, they'll meow there heads off until some one comes to open it for them. No pooping on our floors. The other does lick anything and everything plastic...very annoying...so i spray him with water...

My roommates have 4 cats - they run the house - 4 females - non fixed. Two of them are garbage cats, tall garbage can is always knocked over, paper/plastic chewed. Do not leave ANY bread out on counter - two minutes later its a mashed mess on the floor. And they have to lock the cats in a room when they have their grill on as they will not even wait for you to leave the room before the 2 garbage cats (one of which is the nasty cat) is on the grill - trying to eat what you're eating. Nasty things.

Sound more like feral cats then anything, lol. My room mates will come investigate your plate if you leave it on the coffee table. I still can't figure out why the other one has a plastic-festish....garbage bags, sandwich bags, remote controlls, cell phones - all must be licked!

I think the photographic quality of the picture is above the maximum allowable for an internet meme. Joe and Shadiyah will just have to frame it and hang it on the wall.
