    I guess they could have been named P and S.

    The cat that lives at the office I work at (earlier in the thread) is named Obsidian. The office is an archaeological consulting company. Her name covers it all: toolstone for the archaeologists. I'm a geologist, so an extrusive igneous rock. I'm also a GIS Specialist. Her nickname is "Sid". A .sid file can be used in a GIS.

    Old saying

    "Dogs have owners-Cats have staff"

    But our current greyhound- Arty (Artemis) is just as bossy as the cats-and more vocal

    There is a reason they hire people just to do the GIS. LOL. Most of the archaeologists here have had some GIS classes but they prefer to let people like me deal with the ArcMap program. It hasn't crashed on me in a couple of days! Bliss! The office cat was mostly my idea. I think my boss wants to make sure I'm happy and that I want to stay around.

    It's true what they say...cats have staff.

    Our dogs have learned to love cats; both on their own time. Here Diego watches Lil' Bub on TV.

    Wife thinks she's gonna put a pillow in her lap for her own relaxation? Nope.

    No one reclines alone.

    Cats definitely do love you...it's just that...well...they'll kill you if you don't feed them on time. That's all. Kill you.

    The Cat's Diary

    Day 983 of My Captivity

    My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

    The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am. Bastards!

    There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of "allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

    Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.

    I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously ********. The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now ...

    We had a "more like a dog" cat. He went "off the reservation" for a month, ending up 20 miles from our house. Some nice people called the number on his collar and we went out to get him. It was a warm night and the people who had called us were on their front porch, with Gianni walking around at their feet, rubbing their legs. We pulled up and he coward at the sound of the car and the lights but as as soon as we got out of the car and called him, he immediately raced over to us, wanting to be held. He purred so hard he squeaked. He died last year but left us with many fond memories.

    I am sorry for your loss, but happy for the many joys along the way. They touch us just as much as (if not more than) actual blood relatives. Our animals are like our own kids to us.
