This is 29 seconds neither my cat or I will ever get back

I realize many of you have to come expect very high-brow, sophisticated posts here. In fact, it is often referred to as “the thinking man’s humor blog.” Maybe not in so many words, but I know what people are getting at when they comment: “Farting is so FUNNY!”

But today’s post is a deviation (see the kind of vocabulary I’m talking about?) from the regular. It is a short exploritory video that, in fact, expresses that I have my occasional moments of irregularity.

It might also explain why our cat sometimes poops in my shoes…

Please don’t judge me.

(I actually meant the cat.)

    1. You noticed that, too?! Haha!
      That I’m a tease I mean…

      I like how after the fourth time, she pauses before meowing, as if to say, “Really? This is happening?”

  1. It has finally happened Ned – you are reduced to making cat videos. **Sob** Oh, Ned! How could this have happened to such a young man and world famous long-jump expert?! Ha!

    Funny video- I especially liked the credits – such an artistque flourish. Your cat looks like it has a sense of humor – not that I would expect otherwise. My girl friend had a scrawny little calico cat that would run like heck when you chased her and then wait around a corner and jump out at you on her hind legs. Later, when you were engaged in something else, she would lay in wait and then chase you through the house. I would hide around a corner to surprise her, but she was not as stupid as me and would not come around the corner- just sit and out wait me. Anyway, I came to think that this was normal cat behaviour. So when i went to visit my Mum, i chased her two cats (who were apparently wooses) wanting to play and they were terrified. I think I did them serious psychological damage as they ran under my Mum’s bed and would not come out for the whole week I was there. She had to feed them under the bed and put their litter box under the bed. Oh well. πŸ™‚

    1. It IS sad, Isn’t it? Not just my long jump, but what I’ve been reduced to. But at least I don’t have psychological scarring on my conscience.

      Not to cats, anyway…

      1. Having just read your Motor Vehicle training tweet – i suspect your psychological scarring will come with driver training – both for you and the kids. ha!

    1. Just watched it again, cuz…funny. and realized you weren’t opening a door but peaking around the corner, so disregard the door comment above.

      1. After watching it again, I can see how it could be mistaken for a door opening and closing. Either way, my cat is frustrated and that’s all that matters…

    1. The sad part is it all started because I was going to throw clothes into the dryer. Then one thing led to another… and… I’m not sure I ever actually got the clothes inbto the dryer.

        1. I joke, but she’s actually a pretty cool cat. I’ve had her since my first marriage…

          …come to think of it, THAT’S probably why she sounds like that..

No one is watching, I swear...
