Today's Hump Day and it's normally the day I go on a mission to AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe and Pub. Today, however, has been a day of resolving problems and putting out fires and I'm still not finished. All is not lost, however, in that I am working diligently to complete my work and attend the worldly discussions being held during happy hour.
My cat, Shithead, on the other hand has decided that today is a fine day to hide and then attack me as I walk by. His Kamikaze-like attitude has only reinforced my belief that in his former life, he was a ninja warrior. After admonishing him many times, he decided it was chow time and went to the kitchen to munch out.
There was peace for about three minutes until he came out of the kitchen meowing with his mouth full of cat food, backed arched, with a look on his face like he had never seen me before in his entire life. He then proceeded to attack my ankle, knowing full well that if one claw penetrated my skin, he would be walking with a limp for a week.
After ascertaining that I was not in the mood to play, he retired to the sofa and at this time is sleeping on his back, front paws in the air and his back feet spread widely in a position that even Britney Spears could not accomplish.
