Mean Husband and Innocent Kitty

Shannon abused the cat today (er ... yesterday, Saturday). The poor dumb cat was just minding her own business, sitting on the bench by the stairs and staring blankly as she always does, when Shannon suddenly threw one of his juggling balls at her. I'm not sure what he meant to do, but what he succeeded in doing was hitting her in the ass and scaring her half to death. She, quite understandably, fled in confusion and fear.

Then, only a few hours later, the same poor dumb cat was in the process of being traumatized by the Ghost Cat (our neighbor's cat, who prances around outside and mocks our indoor cats with the whole "Neener neener neener! I get to go outside! And you can't attack me, because there's glass between us!" thing). Munchkin was sitting on the living room windowsill, staring anxiously out at the Ghost Cat, when suddenly Shannon decided it would be a great idea to throw one of his juggling balls at the window to scare away the Ghost Cat, in order to alleviate Munchkin's stress.

May I just say, right now, that if he had suggested such a thing, I would have told him that it was a BAD IDEA?

Anyway, so he threw his juggling ball at the window, and it of course bounced back to bean poor Munchkin, who was already feeling anxious. She flew off the windowsill and under the coffee table, while Shannon cringed in remorse.

Of course, being the dumb cat, she forgot about the entire thing within seconds, but I didn't. Poor kitty! Evil husband!

Ouch! Poor cat!

--Below is a totally random, yet vaguely related story: (Only related in any way, because it involves cats.)--

My cat had kittens on Easter Sunday, a lovely litter of three. Imagine my surprise when I did my daily peek in on them last night after coming home very late, and finding a very distressed momma cat, with only two kittens in the closet-nest! I literally disassembled the entire closet floor, looking for the wee thing, eventually giving up and becoming rather distressed, myself. When I woke up this morning, the missing kitten was back again. Strange, hmm?

I just read what I Commented...."disassembled the closet floor" makes it sound like I did massive carpentry. Actually, it involved removing all the shoeboxes, etc. Oy, I'm rambing today, and I really feel all sheepish now.

ahahaha, hilarious.

i have to tell you something funny. vaughan once told me that when i am mean to him, the "consequences will be reflected upon my cat." it really only applies to the time i tried to attack him with a marker...then afterwards he proceeded to attack the CAT with my marker. my poor cat had little green swirls on his back in addition to his normally white fur. it had washed off in a day, though.

men :P

Re: Mean Husband and Innocent Kitty
The thing is that I know just how he feels since I probably would've done something rather similar. At least the second part...

Just think - it could have been worse. It could have been the smart cat.

If I did that to two of our cats, there would have been no problem. Forgive and forget. Well, forget. Our third cat, on the other hand......well, she would have found a way to get even. Somehow. She's spiteful, that way.
