Cat Burglars!
— Ace

Commenters are recommending an rdbrewer cat-vid in the sidebar.

It's better than you might think. These aren't just cute cats; they're skilled burglars.

1 I like how the cat who opened the door glances back at it as if to say "what? It was already open, I swear"

32 31 If you leave a plastic bag laying about in my house my cat will piss on it.

My old boy cat is starting to get a bit unpredictable in his toilet habits.  If there's a teeny weeny spill of kitty litter (I mean, less than a quarter cup) in the cat box room, he sometimes decides to go there. 

Our only other boy cat got funny about his habits in his last year of life, too. 


The worst thing I have right now is a kitteh (the other one, a 5 year old female) who chews through electrical cords.  She prefers the thin headphone cord or Mac laptop cords.  Very annoying!

One dance with the TV's AC power cord should cure her of that. Possibly permanently.

36 Way OT, but a 'not this shit again' moment:

Are you ready for Cash for Clunkers--the sequel?

According to Senator Stabenow's website, her proposed legislation, known as the "Charging America Forward Act" (S.29 , "will provide consumers with a rebate worth up to $7500 for plug-in electric vehicles at the time of purchase."

Essentially, if one were to buy a $41,000 Chevy Volt, the buyer gets a $7,500 coupon, so the final price is $33,500. In the end, the auto dealer assumes the risk of the government giving them this tax credit.

It is pretty convenient that Ms. Stabenow, who represents a state where GM is headquartered is pushing a bill that is also supported by Edison Electric Institute, whose president was loaned a Chevy Volt, Eaton Corp: the sole American producer of car recharge systems, and Battery Electric Vehicle Coalition, a lobbying group for the electric car industry.

Posted by: IllTemperedCur at March 29, 2011 09:27 AM (9daa6)

39 People just don't want electric cars with expensive batteries.  Maybe they would go for Natural gas, like the buses.  But first they'd have to see taxis succeed with natural gas.  I mean who wants to have to kick themselves if for some reason, the way life is, they forget to 'plug in the car'.  In households all across America the cry will be "did you put out the garbage and plug in the car?"   It's an annoyance and since firefighters apparently are at risk (learned that here on another thread) when these suckers catch fire, what is the upside for everyday Americans?  There is none.

Yeah, that's an awful lot of cats for one house.

Maybe it's like that Warner Brothers cartoon where Sylvester's pals are trying to get him to blow his inheritance on catnip and nubile mollys, while the financial advisor explains capitalism and investment.

So far she's sticky to "vermicelli" cords.

Sounds like we are going to end up owing a lot more money

Posted by: Lemmiwinks at March 29, 2011 09:30 AM (pdRb1)

44 cats are really smart animals but they are very independent.  If you need emotion and love, you'd best get a dog.  In fact cats remind me a lot of guys.  If they can get away with a 'cat nap' they do.   Was looking for a lazy boy for our dad and my sib said  "he has to be able to be asleep in the chair and think no one sees him that he's hiding from mom, otherwise why bother"

(Wealthy) electric-vehicle buyers already get a $7500 credit. Is that an addition or an extension of the current program?

Posted by: Waterhouse at March 29, 2011 09:33 AM (pbCk0)

47 I know people still angry about the last one.  Their car was crushed.  They had a brand new vehicle.  They were informed after the fact that they didn't qualify for the program.  I know way too many people telling stories like that to not think that the parameters were so small to allow you to take advantage that more people had new cars and no rebate than had new cars and a rebate.

Not always true.  The two girls we have now love to curl up and give hugs.  The younger one is really attached to D'oh Boy, and sleeps with him when he's home.  When he leaves, she won't even go up to his room, and stops eating for a day or two.  Sigh.

Better--cash money instead of a tax break:

"the proposed Obama Budget, changes the existing $7,500 electric vehicle tax credit “into a rebate that will be available to all consumers immediately at the point of sale.”"

51 Damn stupid sock.

Posted by: Jane D'oh at March 29, 2011 09:38 AM (UOM48)

52 Probably been covered somewhere, but the electric car believers also NEVER discuss infrastructure, i.e., the electric grid capacity to charge all these puppies every night.  The main breaker box in my old home barely supports subsistence electricity, let alone a large sustained current draw for a battery recharge.
The oil companies have methodically built up a national gasoline/diesel delivery and logistics chain that would cost billions to duplicate or rebuild.  Where does the equivalent "local" recharge station come from?  The same place we go to for high speed rail--the taxpayers.   And, if you don't like waiting in line to buy gasoline now, think about waiting for the Chevy Volt ahead of you recharging---and recharging---and---
CNG has a similar distribution problem in my opinion, but could more readily be layered over the gasoline stations.  And once there was some semblance of a distribution network for CNG, it seems like adding more such outlets would just get easier.

53 A friend of mine has a feline that has apparently figured out toilet use, including how to flush.

I expect his water bill will skyrocket in the near future.

I had a tomcat that I used to put in the downstairs den for the night, so he wouldn't try to run outdoors. So many mornings I'd find him roaming about the upstairs, and I'd accuse other housemates of opening the door to free him from the den. Everyone denied they had anything to do with the cat's escape. One day I was coming down the stairs and heard a clicking sound. I saw the latch on the outside of the door pop up, the door opened, and out strolled the kitteh. He had jumped up and released the latch.

Smart critter, he was.
