cat food is falling from the sky

it's true! i was minding my own business by the food bowl this morning, and all of a sudden, i was pelted from above by cat food. it was truly a wonderful sight, and it felt great on my fur. i just wanted to stretch out and enjoy this tasty precipitation. but it didn't last long; it was just one of the people who feeds me, toying with my emotions. and so i shall have to get him back at some point.

anyway, after that incident at breakfast, i spent much of the day lying behind the chair upon which i usually sit. but it was cooler back there, and i knew that i wouldn't be bothered. punch wandered around a bit, i think he napped under the coffee table, and then spent some time investigating the piglet. (for more on the piglet, see my other recent posts - we have a new addition to the family, and i believe it is a small pig.)

at one point, he saw himself in a mirror, and freaked out - it was pretty comical. for a cat who's been around a whole extra year than me, you would think that he could tell the difference between himself in a mirror, and a strange cat in a window. i don't believe i would make the same mistake, but one can never tell.

suggestions and theories

well, it's been a busy few weeks - it seems that what i thought was just a visitor is staying indefinitely - I don't see any suitcases that would indicate it is leaving anytime soon. and our time with it hasn't been entirely unpleasant. punch and i did, for a short time, conceive of a plot to kidnap this creature, or otherwise rid our house of the uninvited guest. but it turns out that the people who feed us (eric and melissa, you may recall) have a particular attachment that seems to be unique, and i am hesitant to disturb what may be an otherwise delicate and harmonious balance.

but i have also constructed a loose theory of the origins of our guest. to date, my best estimate is that they took a trip to the 100 acre forest and picked out one of these to bring home:

yes, that's right - a piglet. but ours has smaller ears. other than that, the details match. most of the time, our piglet is not bothersome, but there are times, especially during my regular naps, that there is a great deal of screaming going on. so far, i don't see the advantages.
