What is the sound of one cat napping?


Breedlove said...

I'm guessing it's the sound of a creaking couch, straining under the weight of said cat.

(It's funny because you can't punch me through your computer, but I assume that you'll stab me in the brain with your words shortly.)

I'm so fuming I can't think of a clever comeback.

But really, I don't need to, because even though Cassius is 16 pounds of napping cat goo during the day, by night he's a ninja. So sorry about him busting into your apartment, handing you your ass then doing a back flip off your deck without a sound.

Yeah, and sorry you just filled your pants thinking about it when it might happen. Better dig those "shady" underwear out.

16lbs of NCG- That is hilarious.
