String theory

BobShaggyBob_Garden_20130501_D7_029Humans haven’t got a clue about string theory. Their first ropy attempt was called ‘bosonic string theory’. It relied on tachyons – faster than light particles and it didn’t even mention furry ones (or fermions as the humans incorrectly call them). Clearly wrong since Shaggy is the fastest thing in the universe, and any theory that doesn’t include furry ones isn’t worth getting entangled with.

ShaggySo we’ll skip over that and examine their second twisted attempt to spin us a line: ‘superstring’ theory. It postulates a supersymmetry between furry ones and bozos (bosons in humanspeak). Bob is a bozo. I am a furry one. Can you see any “supersymmetry” in this next photo? I don’t think so!

Normal service will now be resumed

ShaggyYou have may have noticed a distinct lack of mewsings in recent weeks. Our human’s excuse is that his computer has apparently been very sick with something he calls the “Blue Screen Of Death”. It seems he was getting this nearly every time he turned it on and he claimed that this was preventing him from taking dictation for our blog. We of course have been giving him every encouragement to get it sorted out! Here’s Bob providing moral support and advice …

A little privacy please

BobSo I’d just got back in from a busy evening maintaining the borders of our new territory. I woke Shaggy to pass on the local gossip and indulge in a little social grooming. Within a minute our human pops up, pokes his camera in our faces, and starts taking photos. Well really! Has he no sense of decorum? Our intimate toilet activities are not really appropriate for public display!

Keeping tabs

BobIt may come as a shock to you but there are certain skills that we felines find hard to master. One of them is typing. That ludicrous keyboard is atrociously designed – the keys are far too small for our paws. As a simple expediency, therefore, we dictate our blog to our human while he types it for us. Of course no one likes to be deficient in any skill so while dictating we also practice our typing enthusiastically, killing two birds etc. (such a pleasing adage). Bizarrely our human seems not to appreciate our attempts to better ourselves!

Bob proof-reading his last post

The risk in delegating such an important task to our human is that he may subtly distort our words. We have to be certain that our views are properly represented so of course we carefully proof-read everything!


Changing shape

Bob_webWe are changing shape! (Actually Shaggy looks like he’s changed shape already!)
We are changing to a new WordPress theme (Yoko) and abandoning 2012 (mostly ‘cos we think the comments look neater in Yoko).
Shaggy_webOy! Changed shape indeed! I was just doing my impression of the bow scene from “Titanic”.
Anyway … we apologise if any of our post formats look a little weird during the changeover, but we’ll pounce on any bugs with alacrity … we’re good at pouncing!
Bob_webAll done. Looks ok from our end. If it looks weird from your end let us know and we’ll complain to our human.

Ebook vs Paperback – the feline perspective

Birth of an idea

Birth of an idea

Bob_webWhile mousing other cat-friendly blogs I came across the Weekly Writing Challenge which led to the birth of an idea. Shaggy and I should advocate the feline perspective on the ebook vs paperback issue and submit it to the human world for their consideration.
