Cat in a box! Cat in a box!

Disneyland for cats would be a box factory.

In positive news, it’s been 97 days since Java Bean broke a glass! Yay, Java Bean! Those Glassbreakers Anonymous meetings must be working. I, however, have broken, um, two glasses in that time period. Bad, Jennette! Bad, bad, bad! I shattered each one while washing them in the sink. In both bouts of Plate vs. Glass the plate has been the winner. Good thing I’ve got a ton of Bad, Bath, and Beyond coupons for 20% off.

Lest I show favoritism, Office Krupke has killed six crickets this month. Six! Predators make the best pets.

And who doesn’t love a cat-in-a-box? Or on-a-bike?

@lee – Java Bean likes to bicycle, too! See halfway down this pic: Cat on a bike

Predators are awesome pets. Mine kill roaches. We live in Florida, so they have more than sufficient prey.

I buy the glass tumblers at the dollar store. They work just as well as the ones at BB&B but cost a fraction, so I don’t feel guilty breaking them (and I do break them – no cat to blame it on).

So, Jennette, do we need a counter for you, too, on how many days it’s been since you broke a glass? :-) I hope you didn’t get cut!

Damn, Java Bean thought to himself. Once again, my human seems disinclined to appreciate my reenactment of Schrodinger’s thought experiment. Humans just don’t grasp the finer points of physics as it relates to feline performance art…

@Merry – LOL! That wins the Best Comment of the Year Award.

I have often thought that the ideal cat room would be furnished with cardboard boxes. We humans would move them around occasionally to make them different. They might allow us a chair, to provide them with an audience.

Glassbreakers Anonymous meetings – available for husbands to attend? … I’d like to send my husband there.

Jennette Fulda tells stories to the Internet about her life as a smartass, writer, chronic headache sufferer, (former?) weight-loss inspiration, and overall nice person (who is silently judging you). She was formerly known as PastaQueen. You can contact her if you promise to be nice.
