Earl may be smarter than Northwind

I was quite tired a after work and went to the Chinese buffet three blocks from where I live. The waiter told me my friend was outside. Obviously Northwind let him out again. I made a plate of shrimp and placed it outside. When I got back he was waiting by the steps.

Of course Nothwind wanted food but wasn't quite as clever as Earl. Fortunately, I keep provisions around the house but she should have just helped herself. It is suposed to snow again and I told her not to let Earl go out until it is 40 degrees.

Earl tracked you down, eh beak? That is some cat!

We've got two cats. One is just like earl, the other, northwind. Milo always jumps up onto my lap for a good rubdown/nap. Carmen sits across the room, back to both of us. If Carmen does ever come over to sit in my lap, its' only to taunt Milo...

Northwind needs to be kinder to Earl.

What happens when you put Northwind out in the snow?

Mr B

Alcohol and snow are not a pretty picture.

AOW

Northwind doesn't like Earl and feels he cuts into her time. Earl just wants to get a hot meal.

The Buffet is close to where we live.

True. Then you should give Earl a beer.

Mr. B.-Earl is being true to his cat nature, Northwind needs to grow up and take responsibility!
To me, Earl is the more deserving...he is a feral cat trying to survive in a world that basically ignores him at best and harms him at worst. Northwind has made choices that are detrimental to her improvement or even survival! Earl had no choice in the matter!

Earl does like beer. If he ever did start drinking beer there may be a full scale war at my place.

It would be nice if Northwind would make a meal. However, if she did she would be someone else. Earl
will be on his own in a few weeks and only stops by for food.

Now that cat knows which side his bread is buttered on or should I say who is really going to make sure hes fed :)

Some cat you got there Beak just remember they own you.

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

Beak,

You need to tell Northwind in no uncertain terms that God gave her ovaries specifically because there's food to cook, dishes to wash, and laundry to clean and that she needs to see a doctor about her delusions of other people giving a damn about "what she thinks."

Sheeesh!

;-P

Cats - can't live with them, can't live with them. Ours are enjoying Spring which means they will spend virtually all their time out - apart from Mimi who's disabled and just likes to be around us.

Earl just seems to follow the food.
It is just uncanny that in a town of 6,000 he knows where and when I have food.

I grab a hot dog in the park Earl will show up. I go to the Chinese buffet Earl shows up. I come back with groceries at 3AM and Earl knows.
