Satan on holidays (part 2)

You remember I recently said that I had see on TV that dogs sometimes take their humans on holiday and that I am going to persuade Pixie and Rich to let me take them on holiday.
Well, it did not work out as I expected… They have decided to go on holiday but they are NOT taking me with them!
They said it is something to do with going on an aeroplane and going scuba diving when they get there… well, they are certainly right in thinking that I would certainly not want to go on an aeroplane (if cats were meant to fly they would have wings, or a pilot’s license) and as for diving….well, that means water and everyone knows that cats hate water.
Except, of course, for Turkish Van Cats – but then water is probably nice and warm in Turkey. Hang on a minute…Pixie and Rich are flying to their destination, so maybe they are going to Turkey. In which case, why aren’t they taking me?

I shall have to have words (after my nap, of course).

in the meantime heres a few new items from pixies Hippy Gift Shop

Cats can’t fly

Satan_cat_blog
So there I was, having a snooze on Pixie’s lap (between my afternoon nap and my pre-dinner nap), when suddenly I dreamed that I was flying – or at least airborne.
I was so surprised that I opened one eye – and was then even more surprised to see that I was airborne, so surprised, in fact, that I opened my other eye.  
What I saw confirmed that I really was airborne. This got me thinking, snoozing cats usually carry on snoozing until it is time for food (or a nap). 
They do not suddenly find themselves in mid-air!
I thought about this for a while and remembered that this has happened before. NINE times before, actually. 
I also remembered that each time it had been for the same reason – Pixie, overcome with excitement, had suddenly leapt into the air. 
The reason for this (on all 10 occasions) was that she has been given the “today’s best award” from Zazzle. 
Apparently this is rather special and gets the award-winning project onto the Zazzle home page ….. It also seems to make people suddenly leap into the air!
This is fine unless they happen to have their cat snoozing on their lap at the time.
When they do have their cat snoozing on their lap at the time, the result is that the cat in question gets hurled into the air. 
Not only is this unseemly, but it also fails to take account of the fact that cats can’t fly.
This particular cat could not fly the first time it happened, and I still can’t fly today on the tenth occasion. 
What actually happens is that you go up for a while, then you stop in mid-air for a moment, and then you start falling towards the floor. 
Knowing that this happens at a velocity of 32 feet per second squared (I am NOT a metric cat) does not help much – you still go up, pause, and head towards the floor. 
At least Sir Isaac Newton used an apple, not a cat. (I wonder if dogs fall at 32 feet per second squared – I must do an experiment one day if I can find a tall enough building).

 

Anyway, I was so shocked by this experience that I am having an early dinner. 
It’s canned tuna because, as you might remember, Pixie keeps sitting on the microwave and, hence, cannot use it to cook salmon for cats. 
I think that Mr Jolly (a friend of Pixie’s family) had a good point when he asked why there is no mouse-flavoured catfood, I think I would still prefer salmon, though! 
After dinner I will retire somewhere peaceful (ie NOT Pixie’s lap) for my after-dinner nap.
What a day!

 

Anyway these are Pixies latest ‘Todays Best Awards’ She got two in 1 day so i’m also slightly deaf after the load shrieking sound that she made while i was in mid-air, I hope the ringing in my ears doesn’t wake me from my nap or there will be trouble!
