    1. C-CS, It sounds to me like the agitators forced the situation, then when the gun was drawn (legally), they had the police come in. The police dissected the situation, let everyone go except the bogus brandishing charge for the CCW holder. That's somewhat reasonable.

      ICE needs to make a trip to that town and start identifying and deporting probably most of those mexican banditos. California is going to be a handful for ICE to deal with. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Natl Guard called in there at some point.

    1. I thought that too, B'ville, but know from experience cats are incredibly resilient –– especially when they're still kittens. Besides, I think most of them really do enjoy a bit of horseplay. But I would never want to be guilty of being mean to one of them even for a second.

      At any rate they sure are natural-born comedians.

    2. Bunkerville, they can take it though, and as FT says, they mostly enjoy that kind of stuff. Play time usually involves ambushes.

  4. One of the French philosophers (I forget which one!) asked this question:

    "Do I play with my cat, –– or does my cat play with me?"

    THINK about that for a minute or two. It has profound implications about the nature of Reality.

    Of course, I don't mind either way. I just love the critters, and that's more than enough for me. I can only hope it's enough for them. So far, I've had no complaints and no feline defectors from my household.

  5. Although medically impossible, I think I might have picked up some feline DNA along the way... or maybe I hang out too much with cats because spiders and balloons scare me. We had a spider that lived in our mailbox for a long time and she'd hide when I picked up the mail. When I didn't see Charlotte for a few days in a row, I thought she had gone away or died. I picked up the mail one day and I noticed that Charlotte was crawling on my hand. I freaked out pretty much like one of those cats. My husband watched the whole incident and told our daughters, "Girls, your mother has just had a nervous breakdown on our front lawn."

    1. Cube, Some spiders scare me, some don't. I'll pick some up and put them outside. But I have seen Brown Recluse around here. Nada. And Australia's funnel spiders? NADA !

    2. I hear you. There are good spiders and bad spiders. There are many that eat insects so I leave them alone. One bad spider bit my daughter's leg and the area around the bite got scary nasty. It turned out OK in the end, but it a very scary situation for a while. Charlotte was one of the good spiders, she just didn't know her boundaries. I'll let you live, just never touch me.

    3. Cube I love when we get the big orb weavers out on the deck and cast their nets. In the summer they must get hundreds of mosquitos. But they haven't been around for a while.

    4. We had one year where we had about ten orb weavers in our back yard. It was amazing. There were critters trapped in the webs. Anyone who came to visit our house was shown the spider area. We've never seen anything since.

  6. There is a loan processor with the company I'm with who was bitten by a Brown Recluse in her back yard in northern Michigan while she was gardening. It put her off work for 2 weeks. I'm leaving them thangs alone if I see them first.

    1. DaBlade, saw one this spring on the inside of the shed door. We stared at each other and I said, I'll let you live but don't ever let me see you in these parts again. And I haven't.

  7. Priceless!

    It is indeed the dour, soulless person who cannot laugh at the antics of cats!

    1. So much Fun AOW. I took hours of video when we were fostering the orphan kittens. I like to watch them playing with dogs too.

  8. Although I'm not as great a fan of cats that our esteemed host is...I actually laughed so hard at some of these antics I had to dry my eyes a couple times. They were hilarious and IF cats could stay as a curious playful kitten forever...I might think of having one around....that's a BIG IF though! Thanks for the laughs.

      Some cats do remain much like kittens -- particularly if they are strictly indoor kitties. We've found that torties tend to retain their kittenhood more than other "breeds" IF we don't allow them to pork out.

    2. IMP, They can sure be some entertainment. Ours are 13 now and still play like maniacs but certainly not as often.
