The New Cat Dish!
I am now the proud owner of the World's Most Expensive Cat Dish.
My mother came by Sunday and dropped off my preBirthday gift. It's a table fountain, complete with naked angel
and a turtle that spits water out of it's mouth.
I had wanted something soothing for the bedroom. I have a fan in there, just to create some background noise to
buffet the traffic sounds at midnight. Ready to ditch the fan, a fountain sounded like a nice idea.
I nixed the fountain next to the bed idea. I'm afraid that my precocious three year old, ever the one with a flair
for mishap and comedy, will chuck my clock radio in there and make his hair even mussier than it is.
So, in order to accomodate the new fountain, I shifted some "stuff" around and set it on a table in the
livingroom. It's nice. It bubbles, gurgles, and is overall as soothing as I thought it would be. I also imagine,
if given an opportunity to see it, I might even find it visually beautiful, as well.
Why can't I see it? I know you're just dying to know.
It's because there is a cat's ass parked in front of it 90% of the day.
Yes, my kitties are so infatuated with this freak of nature that sits regurgiating refreshments in my livingroom
they have yet to leave it's side.
The nice thing is, I never have to worry about watering the cats anymore. And, if they get bored, we're thinking
about tossing a goldfish in there.
See you Wednesday;
