And they said it can't be done: trained cats



L, I B.

My dumb cats don't even look up when I call their names.

Um, maybe your cats are just conceited?? ;)

I had a chance to see this show in person a few years ago when I was living in Russia.

I don't really care for cats, but I couldn't pass up to see such a unique show. It was impressive to see how well the cats were trained.

And what's "L, I B"? "Like, I believe"??

Wow. A whole bunch of companies are now demanding refunds from all those management consultants who built businesses off the whole "herding cats" metaphor...

Your cats aren't dumb. They're just silently laughing while they taunt you with their insouciance.

Angelina (my cat) comes when I call, sleeps at my feet, brings me things she finds around the house, and slobbers when she purrs. I've thought about getting a dog, but why bother? I've pretty much got one now - that doesn't smell either! :)

My other cat, Marmaduke (my son's cat), is pretty much deaf, feels no pain, is a "bull in a china shop" and approved for kids 4 and under :)

Seriously, who could want anything more?

Wendy:

Are you sure they're cats? I mean, if they're furry, and have got four legs and a tail, could they just be an exotic breed of feline-looking poodles or chihuahuas?

Dan:

When cats start behaving like dogs, is this a sign that the Millennium is coming?

Read it aloud, Susancita, pausing at the comma.

Susan said...

Oh boy, the fact that you're calling me Susancita...a hint to pronounce the letters in Spanish? (Pronouncing it in English with that pause you proposed just doesn't help me.)

Ele, ee bee.

Let it be??

Hey, that one cat that sits on the guy's shoulder looks like the Cheezburger cat!

Had to show this one to DH, he enjoyed it as well.
Been waiting to see if Susan got it yet, or if there would be another clue given...here;s one;
If Jed Clampett were to see these cats, he might just say "L, I B!"
