Shoulda named her Ninja


We named our dog Ninja and our cat Pirate. If only we had switched the names, our cat could be like the one above...

thanks Josh!



Pirate's First Day (4)

The mortal enemy of the dog is the cat. The mortal enemy of the ninja is the pirate. Cosmologically it was only a matter of time before the two were brought together under our roof. We picked up our new kitten, aka the Dread Pirate Lily, from the Santa Clara Humane Society. Our dog Ninja is a San Mateo SPCA rescue -- perhaps they will add Peninsula vs. South Bay to their natural conflict. Nitpickers may point out that a cat is more naturally the ninja and the dog the pirate, but they forget that you must balance these forces: the universe has rules about these things.

Lest I be blamed for bringing Ninja vs. Pirate into my household, I will point out that it was d who first sent me listings for potential pirate pussycats. It was skillful manipulation on d's part: I'm not keen on cats, but a pirate cat is irresistible -- as is the opportunity to have a personal LOLCat kitteh:


Cats that look like Hitler

Store cats


I am fascinated by Ripley, Borderland's bookstore cat (About Ripley). I would have a better picture, but Ripley is rather camera shy, and I would like to stay on Ripley's good side.

I am also fascinated by Borderland's, an all-SciFi bookstore not to far from meta's apartment. Though fascinated isn't the proper term in the latter case. Indebted, financially, perhaps is more descriptive. In my last three trips I've managed to pick up Red Mars, Confusion, The Stand, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Chronicles of Narnia (beautiful illustrated version), 3/4 of the Hyperion/Endymion series, Dark Tower III and IV, and Starship Troopers. Of course, I've read almost none of these yet, and I'm sure my next visit will cause me to increase this list even more.

Cats hate me


I don't like cats, and they don't like me. But I could start liking them if they were all as evil as this one:
