I dropped my friend off at the airport tonight, and all the empty kegs and the tap have been returned for the deposit, and the floors no longer stick, and I am once again free to roam my house in only boxer shorts and slippers and Homecoming 2019 is finally over. I’m really all over exhausted.
Steve was a total dick the entire time I had company- I’m not mad at him, he’s a cat, and all these people in the house was disruptive for him. He hid all day long, then came up at 11 at night, demanded to be fed, then prowled the house meowing at all the closed doors. He wanted in the bedroom, then out of the bedroom, and one night he got locked into a bedroom and shit and pissed on a pile of folded clothes.
As soon as I got back from the airport, and he knew everyone was gone, he was back to being his normal self.
Aww poor Steve. Give him some tuna stat.
That’s cat for “fuck you and your noisey friends.”
Don’t traumatize the cat. You will pay. Every time.
Cats are VERY territorial. When I got my 2 cats in June 2011, they used my late mother’s bedroom to hide in and their litter boxes were in there. In June 2015 the teen housemate arrived and took over the bedroom. The dumb cat just recently stopped hissing at him every time she saw him, and if he leaves the door open for five seconds, she runs and gets in his bed and won’t get out until the spray bottle makes an appearance.
I can’t wait for the “Mustard, Mopping, and Other Field Related Escapades” novel that is waiting to be released about this weekend. Also glad that you’re still alive and in, relatively, one piece.
Briefs and Crocs when company’s staying?
@geg6: How is your kitten? Must be all grown up now.

How did Thurston and the company enjoy each other?

One thing to keep in mind next year: board him for the weekend. Have them put a tent in his kennel.
We do that on big family weekends for our cats.
Constantly., for months.
New WaPo story about how all departments kowtow to Trump now:
I used to think Charlie Pierce was exaggerating how many Republicans have contracted the prion disease of the brain. I thought there’d be Rosensteins, Mattises, etc. I was wrong. The whole party is insane.
” he got locked into a bedroom and shit and pissed on a pile of folded clothes.”
I’m about 60 percent dog person and 40 percent cat person. But I do greatly admire cats’ instincts for being neat and tidy.
@Mary G: drumpf just gathers their dirty secrets and extorts them. Fear of exposure, especially if your secret is dirty AND criminal would be enough for most of them to stay in line.
@Mary G: Mattis resurfaced to promote his book, and criticize Obama. I read that he also serves on the board of some for profit detention centers. What has he done that is admirable post resignation because I missed it.
@schrodingers_cat: ” What has he done that is admirable post resignation because I missed it. ”
I saw a clip of Mattis wimping out when confronted in an interview with Trump extortion and illegal solicitation of foreign campaign aid. So from that, my guess is, not much.
@Mike J: It works a little better on Firefox although sometimes the pictures don’t load. For whatever reason it works well on my phone. Android/Firefox/uBlockOrigin
@schrodingers_cat: Nope, he’s just as bad as all of them, and interesting that he’s very critical of President Obama, but won’t say boo about Twitler.
??? Goku (aka Amerikan Baka) ??
As it turns out, all the “adults” in the room like Mattis were simply trying to cover for Dolt 45 and, in the process, protect themselves. It’s not surprising he would criticize Obama. These guys were pretty much all white Republicans anyway
Gosh darn — based on everything else on the front page, I thought your headline was about the Administration.
Also: you can use your confusion about Tweetdeck as an opportunity to break the addiction and come back to us full time.
She is! She’s is a sweetie and loves to play. She’s not very big but seems quite long when stretched out for belly rubs. She is still skittish with human contact unless she initiates it, but will get behind me on the couch and chew on my hair or ask for belly rubs or get into mock fights with little nips but no claws. She has stolen my heart, I must say.
@different-church-lady: Funny, me too. Fro an instant I thought maybe a dozen or so of the honchos, including Emperor T, suddenly took off and were on the lam.
Maybe Trump was on Air Force One, accusing the crew of treason unless they didn’t fly him to Russia, or Saudi Arabia, or another one of his favorite authoritarian lands.
@jl: “unless they DID fly him to Russia,”
@Lee: Cole might be able to have Tammy watch him for a spell, or maybe mom and dad. Thoughts for the next boys weekend.
@geg6: Pictures or it didn’t happen. She sounds adorable!

Closed doors drive our ragdoll cats nuts. They just whine until you show them what’s on the other side.
And yet, he works for … the federal government. It’s like a freak magnet for these mongrels.
Is Billbarr a stan of Donald Trump or something? How and why did that happen? Because I really have no idea where his total devotion to Trump is coming from.
@Amir Khalid: Daddy issues? Unknown at this time. I blame the hardware.
@schrodingers_cat: He’s corrupt. It makes me too angry to describe.
@Mike in NC: We used to have cats who obeyed the law of conservation of cats. Open a door for one to go through, and the other came in. Reverse. Repeat. They were precise.
I just checked Wiki on prime minister of Australia to check something. Man, Trump Pompeo and Barr are loony nincompoops, true idiots, as well as being ruthless criminals. Suppose the Trump’s call to Australia was perfect, then it would have gone like this.
Trump: I need you to do me a favor, look into how your government got that Russian hoax investigation going. You have a beautiful country there, I hope things go well for it.
Morrison: Yes Sir, I can certainly help you with that. That was Malcolm Turnbull, and Alexander Downer. I can dig into that right away and blow the lid off the whole thing, Sir (weeps for joy). It’s an honor to help you sir.
Trump: No Trump resorts in Australia, but I predict things can go much better for your economy.
Morrison: Malcolm and Alex are my party, so I can get the secret records easily, Sir (weeps for joy), that would make me so happy. Mind you, it will cause a political firestorm here and almost certainly bring down my government. But I can introduce you to my successor, some Labor PM, and smooth the way for you, Sir, so he’ll be (weeps for joy) very nice to you, it would be an honor. I’ll get (through his tears, choking, has to take a deep breath and calm down) right on it. Anything for you Sir.
Our government is run by vicious loons. Idiots.
Glad that everything is back to normal???
eh, i’ve done the same thing.
TS (the original)
@jl: Could well have gone that way. There is no love lost between Morrison and Turnbull and the population here is much like in the US – idiots will always vote for the RW party – no matter what they do. The ALP is teetering on extinction at the minute – I doubt they could win a poker game, let alone an election.
How wonderful that everyone survived the weekend and Steve has sussed everything out. Thurston’s been off the grid for a spell. Proof of life would be oh so nice….
You got locked in a room and pissed and shat on some clothes?
(someone was going to add this question, you trolled for it! It was me who took the bait! Also I ordered the code red!)
So apparently, Trump and the RNC have made record breaking fundraising. Suckers. Thats money that’s going into a whole bunch people’s pockets. It’ll probably all go into Trumps defensive fund which he will pocket later if he survives. In any case, I’m interested to see how the RNC is going to throw money around.
Sorry, we only have regular Mountain Dew.
@cain: Senate firewall, enough on the Presidential to avoid an absolute blowout, sacrifice House seats as necessary.
Went to a dog agility match Sunday at a local humane society. Went into the building to use a restroom and a little tabby flung herself at the glass of one of the enclosures and mewed ?. I have said no more cats, mine live to 20 and spend the last 5 years pissing in undesirable places. At least dogs you can keep track of. There was this one enormous black long hair tho……
Since this is a pet & animal thread:
How to prevent birds from crashing into windows
@BruceFromOhio: He has gone over the edge. The DC crowd refused to see that and gave him positive reviews.

I recently had a cat piss all over my nice pair of loafers, now discarded. Currently wearing adjustable flip flops…
