Cat vs Mole


This ended in a way I did not expect. The video came across my FaceBook feed this evening and FB means it’s nigh impossible to share outside of FB itself. Meaning I had to go digging around YouTube to find it for you.

Turns out, this isn’t the only cat versus mole battle that ends in exactly this way.

I am doing invoices tonight. I haven’t been paid in almost three months because I freaking hate doing invoices. This is at least in part because I set myself up with an oh-so-clever spreadsheet that does all the arithmetic automagically for me. It’s such a monumental pain in the ass to work with, I’d be ever so much better off doing my own freaking sums on the back of a brown paper bag.

Technology, eh?

Why doesnt Uncle B do it for you? Isnt that what marriage is about? He does the things you hate and you do the things he hates doing. A real partnership. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, I *always* take the time to do my invoices, first of the month, even if it’s a weekend day ๐Ÿ™‚

…the people on the other end that do the paying, they’re more like SWeasel ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I had to submit billing, it was like pulling teeth. I always felt so uncomfortable defining my worth and under billed. I am a dumbass. ๐Ÿ˜›

Years ago I made a conscious decision to get over my aversion to preparing and submitting the paperwork that resulted in payment. I take it a step further: when it comes to paying MY expenses, I pay myself first, not last.

I had a Doberman that would excavate holes big enough to bury a small car just to get one little mole. Seemed rather…inefficient, but I had to admire his determination.

That cat certainly bears a grudge. I was expecting him to replace the divot.

Quite logical, from the cat’s point of view. The molehill looked like cat crap anyway.

I’ve had a couple of cats who broke their litter box training, always because they had some ailment that made elimination painful. Their reasoning seemed to be, “That hurts; the box is involved; let me try somewhere else to see if it’s better.” As soon as the physical problem was cleared up, the cat went back to the box.

Oh, then there was Da Queen, Marie-Antoinette. If the box was not clean enough to suit Her Majesty, she’d use the bathtub. Still, better that than carpet, I say.

Soon to be made into a classic children’s book: “Squintle The Mole’s Very Annoying Day.”

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
