Out of the Bag

I think there is one thing we can all agree on: alcoholic cats are hysterical. I especially like the ones that hang around outside liquor stores asking people to buy them booze. I’ve never done it, mind you, because I believe that providing non-human animals, or humans not of legal age with alcohol is wrong. Of course, the best thing about alcoholic cats is that if it kills them, you still have a few lives left to get them some help. There are many excellent cat rehab facilities in the U.S., as we have learned from the well-publicized case of Garfield and his battles against substance abuse. Inside sources say that Garfield is down to his ninth life, however, and is still boozing it up pretty heavily. I’m not proud of it, but I look forward to the day when he is put out of my misery.






JAZZ PICKLE JAR: This cartoon from 1995 seems an appropriate addition to this post because…(anyone? anyone? Beuller?)… they both are about a cat. You may recognize the text in this cartoon as it was expanded upon by some anonymous person and sent around the web and email world a billion times. Someone even made a really awful video based on it. Just for the record, the cat diary was MY idea. That is all.Bz CAT DIARY 1995 WEB
