Message 1369370 - Posted: 18 May 2013, 16:08:00 UTC - in response to Message 1369338.

Well, we have a dis-honerable mention for Julie with "Ok...now I'll type 'the best ways to spoil your cat'. Hope my boss will take the hint..."

Clearly no cat would call a human "my boss".

And another for Chris S with "Okay ...... back feet control the touch pad, front feet control the keyboard. Who needs a mouse!!!"

All cats need mice to play with, just not for controlling the computer.

And lastly one for Carlos with "No cute people videos?"

There are obviously tons of videos on the web of people doing stupid things. Besides, why would a cat want to watch videos when their own humans do stupid things every day.

By the way, I have 6 cats ... ahem ... so lets get to the winners...

In second place is KWSN THE Holy Hand Grenade! with Gee, I didn't know my left rear could activate this...

And our man (woman?) of the hour is N9JFE, who has played with one too many red laser pointers, with That little pointy thing on the screen is almost as bad as the red dot. When I sit still and watch it, it sits still too. But when I get up to leave, it starts moving around.

Wow. I didn't think mine was all that good. I guess it had the advantage of being a bit different from the rest.

BTW, my name is in my signature. How many women do you know named David?

Chris has a point:
Oh gosh thank you, another Dishonourable mention, Wow! I got two now. You do all realise that these are more highly sought after than just mere wins :-)

But I'll take the win and look for something. Good pics for this thread aren't as hard to find out there as for other threads.

Now what did Grandpa say...
Ah yes, Species, "Felis", commonly known as "cat (tabby)". They are caught in that eternal quandary - they like fish, but don't like getting wet, so have to wait for fish to get out of the water. But I don't trust this one, so I'll go and hide in the little house that's behind me....
