20 February 2014. Let’s Break the Tension… There be Some INTERESTING Cats Out There…

00 Cats 01. Millie the Guard Cat. 20.02.14

I think that we’re all wrung out with the story of the Kiev fighting. Yes… we’ll have to return to it. For now, let’s take a break and romp with the furbies…

This is Millie… she’s a guard cat in England. I shit you not… she guards the premises… and she does look SERIOUS…

00 Cats 02. Kuzma the Library Cat. 20.02.14

In Novorossisk, Kuzma is an “assistant librarian”… he takes his job very seriously…

******

00 Cats 03. Belgian Postal Cat. 20.02.14

In the 1970s, “post cats” appeared in Belgium, in a village near Liège. Yes, they deliver the mail… yes, they get it right… no, I don’t know how they do it…

******

00 Cats 04. Stubbs the Mayor Cat. 20.02.14

Stubbs is the “Acting Mayor” of Talkeetna AK USA… he’s been shot with an air gun, a dog gave him a vicious bite, but he lives up to the ideal of “I takes a licking, but I keeps on ticking”…

******

00 Cats 05. Larry  the UK Mouser Cat. 20.02.14

Larry is the Chief Mouser of the UK… he lives at 10 Downing Street. Vicious liars claim that Larry sleeps on the job, but every one knows that cats are nocturnal…

00 Cats 06. Tama the Station Master Cat. 20.02.14

Tama is the “station master” of the railway stop at Kishi Station on the Kishigawa Line in Kinokawa (Wakayama Prefecture) in Japan…. since Tama’s been on the job, ridership from the station is up 10 percent… would I lie to youse guys?

Let’s all smile and break the tension… for the cruel world is still waiting for us… but it can wait for a while, can’t it?

13 July 2012. Now, For Something TRULY Important…

______________________________

Now, let’s talk about something TRULY important… the Right Honourable Larry, the Present Incumbent Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Let’s all give a hand to one of the more active and useful civil servants in Her Majesty’s Government. Indeed, 10 Downing Street is free of rodent infestation due to Larry’s ceaseless and mostly unsung efforts.

All hail to the Most Puissant Larry, Chief Mouser Extraordinaire! Ura! Ura! Ura! …and don’t forget to put the salmon in the bowl, y’hear…
