Human Holiday Hangups

OrnamentsSmutty enjoys Thanksgiving food as much as the next pet, but apparently humans are more territorial than animals.  Stabbing a guest over a chair is extreme behavior.  Seriously, you couldn’t sit somewhere else?  Now you face felony charges over where you wanted to sit.  Um, cats just find another spot.  This wasn’t even a fight over food, (animals understand that), but over where to put your butt.

And who has time during the busy holidays to hack into someone’s printer and set it on fire?  Get a hobby, there is no advantage to melting the printer of random people.

OK, if you break into someone’s home and hold them hostage, you cannot sue them for breach of contract because they turned you in to the police.  Now that that’s clear, please someone tell this man.  Any contract made at knife point is invalid.  Just because you offered them money does not make it OK that you are holding them at knife point.  If you were stupid enough to fall asleep, sorry chump, go to jail.

Finally, an example of sever overkill; Raiding the Occupy L.A. camp with 1,400 police in the middle of the night.  Not one of the cities evicting the Occupy protesters has addressed the issues.  Not one candidate has addressed the valid concerns of a large population.  The attitude seems to be; just make them go away so the privileged don’t have to look at them while spending money on frivolities.  Maybe more people can take a look at just how many are hurting and spend some money getting families into homes instead of in parks.  Just saying.

All Hail the New Princess!

Don’t Forget Your Pet – Black Friday

Cat with bowThe shopping frenzy season is upon humans.  Thanksgiving marks the start of a race called Black Friday, but which now begins on Grey Thursday.  Most stores are starting their sales on Thanksgiving day or evening.

Smutty wants to remind you to not forget the four legged members of your family.  While our needs are few, we do enjoy a few things such as a new comfy pillow, replaced stuffed toys, some new feathers or a chew toy.  In fact, for less than the price of an iTunes gift card, you can set up your pet for a whole year of toys rotated to keep them interested.  Stop in at Pet’s Mart or Pet Supplies Plus and make a pet really happy.

So put it on your list, Smutty needs a new nap pillow.

And don’t forget to throw a tasty tidbit of turkey in the food bowl.  Happy shopping… yawn.

Changing Views

Smutty is pro feline.  Smutty used to be anti-dog, but he is coming around.  Smutty met a new (sort of) friend named Max.  Max is a king-rotweiler who was rescued by a friend of Smutty’s human.  Max had been neglected and mistreated, but his new human treats him great.

In return, Max has thwarted the plans of two criminals who attempted to rob Max’s human while he was not home.  Personally, Smutty knows to check for the presence of a 180 lb security alarm before breaking and entering.  Once a dog of this size has you in his jaws, you won’t be getting out in one piece.

So, between Max, Hercules and Cookie, Smutty has to admit that dogs are sometimes a good thing.  But don’t be putting your paws on Smutty.

Yawn, moral stretching is hard work.  Nap time.

Occupy Forever

occupy wall streetSmutty appawes the Occupy Movement.  Smutty is all for supporting the undercat or underhuman (a little fuzzy on the underdog).

So Smutty has been following the Occupy Movement with interest and support.  Now, however, The Man has begun to crack down on Smutty’s friends in an effort to make them go away so no one can know just how bad the economy is.

Clearing out the parks and camps under the guise of “sanation” is mere propaganda.  If government and police were really concerned about public health and sanitation, they would enact policies to get homeless pets and families off the streets, and into permanent housing before winter falls.  Nothing will be less sanitary than a pile of frozen, dead human and pet bodies come spring thaw.

Take note politicians; pets know how to be grateful for a forever home.  Even dogs know how to act when rescued, Hercules lived up to his name when a family showed him love.  Politicians, if you want votes, stop blowing smoke and posturing (animals know this behavior well), just show compassion and love for your voters and they will show the same for you.

Power to the Pawple.
