Have you ever seen CATS? I haven’t. Do the cats in CATS remind you of Dom Deluise? They always reminded me of Dom Deluise. What if Dom Deluise had a cat? I don’t have a picture of that. But look, he was the voice of Tiger, the vegetarian cat from An American Tail.

  1. I enjoy having conversations with cats, even though I don’t speak cat.

    Also, my little sister’s cat is named Thunder, so I always run up to her (the cat, not my sister) and go “HOOOOO” and nobody I live with understands why (except Thunder, because she’s awesome.)

  2. My cat just forced me to eat 2/3 of a carton of Ben & Jerry’s chocolate fudge brownie ice cream. True story.

    I usually eat it straight out of the carton, just nibbling along for a few days until it’s gone. Today I popped in a Carnivale DVD and sat down with my ice cream, when my cat Evey comes up to sniff at the carton lid and SNEEZES A BIG, WET, SNOTTY SNEEZE ALL OVER IT. Naturally, my only choice was to eat all the ice cream in one sitting.
