Saturday Night

I was supposed to do some homework on trades and make new screens but in the end I did basically nothing today and that was just fine! Maybe tomorrow.

This Cat is Getting Big
When we picked out of new kitten Jessie one of the main reasons was that she was 6 months old (supposedly!) and still seemed a bit on the small side. I thought that would work well because I wanted Norman the Pug to be relaxed around her. Fair enough.

On our first vet appointment for the cat, we were informed she was really closer to 4 months old and already large for that age. Uh oh. Jessie has been here since the week before Christmas and she is already getting as long as the dog! I am starting to fear that she may be part Maine Coon Cat! She has a real wild streak. Here are the two kids on the couch and you can see how she has grown up already compared with earlier pictures:

Uh oh.

Star Wars of Course
A little Star Wars stuff never hurt, right?

Sorry, but yes Chewbacca is dead:


Still one of my favorite art works from the Expanded Universe, Corran Horn battles Shedao Shai on Ithor:

The novel Dark Tide: Ruin is one of the better EU books.

Just ran across Bill Dance's best fishing bloopers and it is a howl:

Have a good night.

Jessie looks kind of like my cat Ally, except much larger. Ally is the alley cat, or kitten at the time, my mother found at the office and brought home so her two cats, Calico and Puffy, could have someone to play with.

I named her Ally the Alley Cat, and she took an immediate liking to me, then promptly took of my condo, which is now her territory. She has a wild streak as well, likes to lie in wait and pounce on the other two should either of them venture over here. She also likes to swat my ankles when I walk by.

I used to let her play on my patio, as she is an outdoor cat, until she destroyed my water fountain. How an 8 lb cat can knock over a three-tiered fountain I will never know, but I heard this big crash. When I went to investigate, it had been reduced to rubble. Then I decided Ally was not a domestic cat but a domicidal terrorist.

She likes to be up high, so she's constantly climbing around on top of my bookshelves or the refrigerator or the antique cabinet. And she can really jump too. I've seen her make leaps that defy gravity. Of course, she's always knocking things over, breaking things. Once she jumped onto my desk, spilled a glass of water and shorted out my keyboard. This is what I'm talking about, domicidal terrorism.

But of the three Ally is the only one who will curl up next to me while I'm sitting in my desk chair. She likes to sleep on my lap. So one night I thought I'd let her into my bedroom, thinking she might want to curl up on my bed. She promptly destroyed my suit steamer. I was awoken by a loud crash, and that was the end of that.

I'd look out for Pug if I were you.
