    My Cat Named "Rope".

    I think this was from the Christmas it wouldn't let my kids get to the presents.

    Or it could have been the Christmas that it attacked Grandma's face

    So many memories... It's hard to keep them straight.

    Ash... Chief... Gibby... Glunn... ChiTown... Everyone... If you could say a few words. It'd be appreciated.

    He kind of sounds like he could be a White Sox fan -- kind of has that feral White Sox look as well.

    I should go take advantage of the weather and take my non-cat pet for a walk. She has never attacked any senior citizens as a holiday gift.

    Friends...North Americans, and you too Chitown. I come here to praise Rope, not to bury him. He is free to romp and play with the assorted farm denizens. Free to breathe in that fresh farm air. I raise my Firkin in your honor.

    Gosh, i hope not!

    (Rereading earlier post... ah, Rope is a her...)

    Hard to tell, and i guess that's the point of euphemisms. But the sympathy probably is appreciated either way.

    If i may, i'll embrace the farm euphemism, and imagine Rope battling her tail off at triple A, and making it back to the majors as a tiger like other great former twins... Cats have 9 lives after all. (What's the song with the refrain -- "But... the cat came back.")

    Anyway, now i'll distract myself with hockey, if it's okay.

    It was an actual farm... In a barn with 6 horses. And other cats...

    I wouldn't have agreed to the vet. She was mean but I'm not that guy.

    Thanks for the clarification!

    (and no, hockey didn't really help. Guess i'll have to hope the Twins can get the game in today?)
