Insert Witty Comment Here

I caught my cat, Avery, on top of the bird cage a few times. The cockatiels were only mildly annoyed. I don't think they fully understand what a cat is.

I couldn't come up with a witty title for this post. Maybe one of you can. :)

Winged Kittens

I had a mythical moment today while reading the Pennysaver ads. There was an advert for a grey and white winged kitten. Now I've seen winged ginger tabbies, but grey and white?!?!


We thought it must be a typo or perhaps that was a particular pattern type. I did a search and found that some cats do indeed have "wings" either from matted hair or a skin condition that causes extra flaps of skin to grow. There was one case where the owner claimed the wing growth was due to stress because too many females were hot to mate with him.


You know, that could start a new trend- men wearing prosthetic wings under their muscle shirts claiming to be stressed by too many female admirers. They'll be photoshopping wings onto their MySpace pics.

Update on Screwtape

A fellow writer (though compared to Jack I'm a mongrel beside a purebred because he's really published, I mean like people buy these books and his name's actually on them because, well, he wrote it.) You can see it here: The Confederate War Bonnet. Plus he wrote the fifty word story just above my one liner.
Anyway, he reminded me that I never said how The Screwtape Letters play was.

It was wonderful!
It's basically Uncle Screwtape monologuing in a wickedly fiery and satirical humor compelling the audience to hang on his every word. The script sticks to C.S. Lewis's book. It's not dumbed down, watered down, or otherwise marred. His personal secretary, a quirky creature with a strangely compelling stage presence, scrambles around taking dictation and supporting the story with pantomime when needed.

In the audience (it was sold out, by the way) there were teens, elderly, and everything in between, various races, and a variety of clothing style- from formal to casual, plus some pretty cute artsy outfits. I guess C.S. Lewis fans can not be stereotyped.

Oh, and I love how Uncle Screwtape says his name- ScrewwwwtaPe! (with a satisfying pop at the end).
