"The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man's." – Mark Twain, Letter to W D Howells, 4/2/1899

Rufus and the Fat Cat.


I like cats, but I couldn’t eat a whole one; only kidding.

The truth is, I can take them or leave them.

Some of my canine friends think I’m crazy. “Cats are evil. It’s our mission in life to destroy all cats.” It was Billy talking. He’s a real dog. I’ve seen him wee on a policeman. He got kicked in the balls, but he didn’t care. It was the principle of the thing.

The irony of this conversation occurred to me; he lives with a cat. A fat cat. A very fat cat. Very fluffy and very blue.

Her name is Vivian, and she rules the house.

She has sharp claws, but this is not how she does it.

She only has to look at you, and you want to go away and hide.

Cats are strange creatures; strange and powerful.
