The real reason Thomcat has not been online (pictures / sarcasm ahead)
Now, I know that Thomcat has many valid reasons for not spending time onlne lately. BUT there is one that he is not telling you about:

Silver won't let him use the computer!



as you can see, Silver has taken the keyboard hostage. I think he is using it to google new ways to eliminate dogs from the apartment.

speaking of which...I think that "Thomcat" should have considered a new name. As you can clearly see, he has gone over to the canine side:



does this really look like someone who gives his loyalty to the cats? My dogs own him! Especially the evile little black chi-puppy. Coco has him wrapped around her tiny little tail.

Silver's take on all this? He has taken to diving in the 'nip. I am looking for a decent rehab facility for him, if anyone has any recommendations?

1. He prefers cats to us? My God, he is perilously close to being placed on the DTM list.
Kidding. No ThomCats on the DTM list, ever.

27. Silver is AWESOME!
I want to strangle the dogs from time to time...especially the little one. She is pure EVIL disguised in a cute little package!

4. Proof that all adorable cats are secret freepers
Catnip? Isn't that just the feline version of oxycotin? What's next, a speech at CPAC?

12. I usually give the cats a small amount every once in a while.
So what does Jenna do? She figures the whole bag will help the cats adjust to the dogs better. :eyes:

She's trying to turn my cats into stoners. :P

:P

I limit that nip to small, reasonable treats. Jenna has a much, much more liberal policy with the nip, as you can see. :rofl:

15. That part about Silver hijacking my keyboard is true.
Both of my cats think it's the greatest place to come and take a sudden nap, whether I like it or not. :grr:

It's not my fault her dogs are absolutely friggin adorable and love me. :P

And Jenna's the dealer giving that whole bag of nip to my cats. Don't let her fool you by blaming that on me. :rofl:

30. I am NOT only the middleman here
Thom is the one who:

Brought large quantities of the kitty drug into the apartment.

Stored it in a LARGE ziploc bag on the shelf where he keeps all his other cooking herbs etc (a huge collection btw!) I did not even know it was there, thought it was something for cooking human food ;-)

then says to me...

grab the bag of catnip and give it to Silver.


Let me tell you...that cat comes running at the sound of a ziplock bag getting opened now!

10. Ruh Roh! The cat, watch it! He's going to steal credit cards soon!
Man, last time the Police came here (Domestic Violence with my ex), I had a bag of kittey nippers on my desk.

They saw that baggie. I just about LMAO. I handed it to them, and told them it was kitty nip! I guess they believed me. (Neither me or my ex ever smoked pot.) But they stole the kitty nip! Scoundrels!

18. Jenna showed up today with two cat nip toys.
Yes, he's definitely developing a habit now. :eyes:

I'm glad the cops took it and left you alone. I suppose that's the best case scenario. Given how militant the cops can be about MJ busts, they could've arrested you and then insisted that it couldn't have been nip no matter what you say.

47. You'll have to start growing your own
My kitties won't touch the store bought stuff. I have to grow the catnip in the backyard, pick it every fall, dry it, and run it through the food processor. They are well supplied throughout the winter. At least I know it's completely organic.

24. It made me very happy too.
Of course that oh so attractive red sweaty look that Jenna captured in that picture was from my own meds, not the company of the dogs. My combination of meds had me loopy and in the middle of a hot flash.

I'll have to find a creative way to thank Jenna for capturing that. :P

I love having the dogs over here. That definitely makes me very happy.

And I've told Jenna and FanGrrl, and all of the house elves that no matter what shape I'm in I'm always happier having their company rather being home alone. :)

p.s. Your dogs look pretty happy to be with Thomcat too.

40. Silver is zonked out on my bed right now.
I think he's going to be sleeping off that cat nip for a while. :P

Coco, aka Voldemutt, is in my lap right now, so I have use of my computer for a bit.

Yes, the dogs are very happy to come visit me. :)

And they are apparently very UNhappy when it's time to go back home at the end of the weekend. :(

41. Silver is allowing Thomcat some online time...
...while he sleeps of the afterbuzz from playing with his newest toys.

My dogs ADORE Thomcat. He spoils them rotten. Last week they fought me to try to stay here and not go back to CT. (the little one actually showed teeth...and the old man just sat down and refused to move. Had to be carried into the car)
