This cat has never been out of this tree

Never. He was born in the tree, the other kittens grew up and left, then his mother did. So Wisconsin man Ron Venden built him a shelter in the fork and began feeding him a diet of meatloaf and salami in milk. Cat’s name is Almond.

Yeah. I wondered that, too. The article doesn’t say, but I bet Mr Venden is very, very careful how he walks around that tree.

What? Yes, that’s it. It’s Monday and I’m damned if I’m going to write about Rahm Emanuel.

In case you’ve never seen it, my favorite picture of cats being cats:

It’s not a setup. The backstory is, they were driving along in an open truck and three boxes blew out. When they went back to get them, this is what they found.

A search of “three boxes three cats” turned it up right quick.

Lol @ cats. Thanks for the labels on the first pic. That helped clear things up.

You needn’t write anything at all about R– E–. Others will pick up the slack, and it will be nice to have a refuge from the straining.

By the way, once I found that image, I looked to see if there was a larger version out there, using TinEye. If you’ve not played with it yet, you should — show it a picture and it’ll find other instances on the web.

Artists use it to track theft. Try it with my Zombie Reagan (everyone there has permission).

There’s even a FireFox plugin. Right click on an image and TinEye it.

Way cool. No idea how it works.

I’ll never forget the day I discovered Shazam.com . A few seconds of a song and it’ll tell you what it is and who it’s by.

I’m still trying to get-up a mob to burn them at the stake.

My friends and I are convinced that open boxes are Cat Traps. 🙂

Of course, in many cases, a cat sprawled on it’s back with tummy apparently begging for attention is called a “Hand Trap”! 😆

What I always wanted was an AI application where you could whistle or hum a few bars of a piece of music and it would go off and match it. If it has decipherable lyrics then you can generally Google it, but if it’s purely instrumental then no such luck. Even a website with a virtual piano keyboard would be handy. Actually I wonder if that would be doable…

Hmm it’s an idea. Like AmIHotOrNot.com except NameThatTune.com. If anyone steals this I will straight up moiderize them.

Dave, I actually thing that either Rhapsody or one of the other music sites has a tool that can be used on a smartphone to do that. You have it sample a song on the radio, it ID’s it and ads it to your online wish list.

“The neighbors think I’m goofy.”

Now, whyever in the world would they think that? And I’ll bet Almond travels plenty at night, but is smart enough to know a good thing when he has it going for him. All he has to do is be sure he’s back before dawn. . .

Damn, this just ruins one of my favorite sayings…regarding cats in trees, on roofs, etc….
“How many cat skeletons have you seen in trees?” upon being begged to get poor kitty down…
Please keep us posted…..

See, cats are natural Democrats, it’s just that not all of them are so obvious about it.

Cats will go to great lengths to torture their humans.

Scubafreak: that’s pretty much like the Shazam that Uncle B. was talking about. I want something where you don’t need to actually be listening to the the song or have a smartphone, you just hum ‘dum de dah dah dum dum’ and then it gives you the most likely matches (ideally with a confirmatory sample.) I bet Google are working on it.

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.
